Top 10 Probiotic Boosters

Top 10 Probiotic Boosters


Dr. Axe: Hey, guys. Dr. Josh Axe here along with Jordan Rubin. Welcome to “Ancient Nutrition Today.” We got a great broadcast. We’re talking about probiotics and how to
boost probiotics in your body and transform your microbiome. Also, we’d love to say hey to all of you viewers
out there. Hey. We’re going to say hey to many of you. Let us know the city you’re from, the state
you’re from, the country you’re from, and we love you to say, “Hey, do you know we’ve
got people watching from all over the world?” And I’ll tell you, Jordan, more people need
to know about probiotics. I know you’ve got an incredible story overcoming
Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and many other digestive issues. And a big part of it was probiotics. Jordan: Absolutely. You know, when I was just starting barely
anyone knew what probiotics were. To think that germs could be good was so far
out of the box. Now, probiotics are everywhere. Even the largest consumer packaged goods companies
in the world promote probiotics during the TV shows we watch, right? When you see a probiotic commercial on ESPN,
you know that it’s arrived. But here’s what I want everyone to understand. Probiotics are primarily focused on boosting
immunity and digestive health. But we know there’s so many other areas, athletic
performance, skin, hormones, adrenal, thyroid. I mean, if you start going down the list,
certainly candida, overgrowth, etc., but what we want you to understand first is how do
you, who are watching, know if you need a probiotic boost? Bottom line is if you were born via C-section,
which is happening more and more, if you were not breastfed long enough, if you ever took
one dose, one dose of antibiotics orally or topically, you need a probiotic boost. If you’ve ever had conventional dairy, meat,
or eggs, you’re getting antibiotics in there, right? Dr. Axe: Yeah. Jordan: If you’ve ever consumed sugar, if
you consume caffeine, we don’t think coffee’s bad, but it does damage probiotics. If you have consumed medications such as oral
contraceptives, if you’ve ever gotten mad at anyone, and I’m not kidding, if you breathe
in toxic air, if you put on skin and body care products, or use hand sanitizer you need
a probiotic boost. So now that everyone knows it’s all of you,
let’s talk about how to boost your probiotics in ways that you probably never thought of. Dr. Axe: Yeah, you know and as Jordan and
I are talking about, there are so many people today, pretty much everybody, who’s deficient
probiotics, and part of this because we live in the sanitary bubble in the homes we live
in. I mean, when people . . . historically, people
would be outside a lot more, people would be tending farms, I mean, the percentage of
farmers is like, I don’t know what the number is, I think it’s 40 or 60 down to less than
2%. Now, we used to be intact with the earth. We used to be eating locally. Doesn’t really happens anymore. Those were big areas where we got probiotics
on a regular basis. Also, in my book, I actually talked about
refrigeration was the most damaging inventions ever to our health because we stop relying
on fermented food. So we’re going to talk about today. I want to start off saying, “Hey,” to all
of you viewers out there. But listen, there are millions of people that
are probiotic deficient right now. I shouldn’t say “millions” I should say “billions.” Help us spread the word right now. We’re going to teach you today the top 10
probiotic foods that everybody should be eating. Take a second right now. Punch your share button, and if you’re loving
this live broadcast you can click the “Love” button here as well. Well Jordan, we’ve got people from all over. We’ve got Pat Yancy watching from Prineville,
Oregon. Hey, Pat. Thanks for joining us here today. We’ve got Rita Martins watching from Saskatchewan,
Canada. Hey, Rita. Thanks for watching here today. We’ve got Melissa Gonzalez from Santa Maria,
California. Kenneth Bui from Atlanta, Georgia. We’ve got Tonya Pierce from Nashville, Tennessee. Bethany from Wichita, Kansas, and Alejandro
Ortiz from Prescott, Arizona. Jordan: You pronounce that really well. Dr. Axe: Hey, I do. Jordan: Like that. That’s a calling that’s like the Zorro [inaudible
00:03:58]. Dr. Axe: It is. We love Zorro. All right, guys. So we’re going to jump in and start talking
about probiotics here. I’m going to dive into number one here, Sauerkraut. This is one of my favorite foods. Jordan, I know we both love the brand Farmhouse,
which we’ve both had. My wife loves the dill pickle Farmhouse. Hi, Honey, if you’re watching. But sauerkraut here is loaded with probiotics
and specifically a species called Lactobacillus plantarum. And this is a probiotic that has been shown
to be very beneficial for nutrient absorption and helping repopulate good bacteria in the
gut lining. Also, sauerkraut has . . . Jordan, have you
talked about this. Maybe with your next one, but the power of
sauer, that sour flavor, it’s something we’re missing in our diet, hence the name sauerkraut. But sauerkraut comes from fermented cabbages. And we also know that cabbage is high in vitamin
C. We know it’s also a good source of other vitamins
and minerals, inorganic acids, which we could talk about. But again, sauerkraut, a great and amazing
superfood to be getting in your diet. And just some recipes, I love doing this with
some grass-fed chicken sausage or grass-fed burgers. It’s great with a side of those. But getting it one serving a day, a sauerkraut
is great for your health and can help boost up your probiotics. Jordan: Absolutely. I had some last night. There’s a local farm they call “Tod the Fermented
Farmers.” So we were opening up our jars trying the
different versions. Fermented vegetables are wonderful. They’re affordable and they’re good for almost
everything. Dr. Axe: Miso is number two. Miso is what they put in your soup where there’s
sort of little seaweed floating around in Japanese restaurants. Miso is fermented soy. Now, I know that soy is getting a bad rap,
but soy and miso can be fermented up to like years. Jordan: Yeah. Dr. Axe: And what you’re getting is powerful
peptide proteins that support the gut and certain microorganisms. The cool thing about miso, you still get the
benefits even when you heat it. So, some of these foods boost your probiotics
and they . . . it’s not even a direct result of consuming a probiotic. So miso is a fermented food, great for the
gut, great for hormones. You just need a little bit in some warm water. I like drinking miso broth. It’s really, really awesome. So try to consume a little more miso. It lasts a really long time, available at
almost any health food store or progressive grocery. Really great. Jordan: Awesome. The other species here are the . . . another
superfood here, which we have several things in here, we’ve got yogurt, kefir, amasi. We could talk about lassi. But fermented dairy products. Jordan, I know that this is something that
transformed the health of my own mom. In fact, my mom was having issues with chronic
constipation. She started adding in goat’s milk kefir into
her diet along with some flax oil and flax meal, and really changed her overall bowel
health. And so again, we know that this is great and
we talked previously, Jordan, about Greek yogurt or low-fat, specifically. When you are buying kefir or yogurt products,
especially, you want to make sure they come from grass-fed cows, ideally A2 animals, so
it could be goat or sheep. And also, you want to make sure it’s not low-fat. You want to make sure it’s the real deal. They’re ideally certified organic. Going to jump in apple cider vinegar here. As Jordan and I are talking about though,
probiotics are key to your health. Listen, if you are struggling with any type
of digestive issue, it can start in the gut. Any type of immune related problem, that can
start in the gut. Even joint issues, brain issues, it’s all
about transforming the health of your gut, and we know today that probiotics or this
really system in your body or the all the probiotics that line your gut, they are called
the “microbiome.” Some doctors even calling it its own separate
organ within the body. We’ve got to repopulate these probiotics to
be healthy. We want to teach people how to do that. Take a second right now, if you’re on a mission
with us, and press your “Share” button right now, and help us spread the word on how to
use probiotics as a natural medicine. Repopulate the gut. Jordan, number four superfood here, apple
cider vinegar. Dr. Axe: Now Apple cider vinegar is a raw
food and if you get it with the mother, so unfiltered it actually is a living culture. Apple cider vinegar has acetobacter and also
produces various organic acids such as acetic acid and malic acid, apple cider vinegar is
an old-time folk remedy. You know what I love to use apple cider vinegar
for people that have heartburn that think they have they need to suppress their stomach
acid, using apple cider vinegar before meals helps to increase your own digestive juices. I saw a commercial for one of the proton pump
inhibitors. It’s so sad when they say, “We can suppress
your stomach acids for 24 hours.” That’s the worst possible thing. You’re suppressing bone growth, you’re suppressing
all kinds of things, but apple cider vinegar with warm water, a little bit of honey, is
an old time remedy. Dr. Jarvis wrote the book, I believe, “Folk
Remedies” where he talked about apple cider vinegar. Certainly Paul and Patricia Bragg. Apple cider vinegar is really great. You know what else is awesome? Coconut vinegar. Coconut vinegar comes from the sap of coconut
palms. That can be really, really great. So these are great for your gut. They help lower the colonic pH and they’re
really good for a lot of things including blood sugar. Jordan: Yeah. Great stuff. So apple cider vinegar, and it’s beneficial
for so many things in the body. One question here we have from somebody is,
“How often do you take and how much do you take at a time?” from Lynx-O [SP]. You know we would typically recommend, probably,
a teaspoon to a tablespoon before each meal. It’s a great remedy. So typically about a teaspoon. A lot of people can do a tablespoon, sort
of with the meal or before meal. It’s a great way to do it. And a great thing to do is also try to do
what Jordan did, add a little bit of honey, just drink that as a beverage throughout the
day. It’s absolutely delicious there guys. All right, we’re going to jump in here and
talk about natto. Dr. Axe: Ding, ding, ding. There. Jordan: Did anyone guessed it? So out of all these 10 probiotic boosting
foods, natto has the highest amount of probiotics. We’ve actually studied three separate nattos
from around the world, and one of them had over a trillion CF use of probiotics per serving. Now, it does vary but I have never seen anything
that high. We’ve tested yogurt, kefir, we’ve tested sauerkraut. Sauerkraut can get pretty high too, but that’s
. . . isn’t that awesome? Dr. Axe: That’s amazing. Jordan: And you think about it, natto was
a condiment that people in Japan and Indonesia use every day. This is a triple threat. Natto has probiotics. And my favorite probiotic, Bacillus subtilis
natto. It’s got vitamin K2, MK7 or menaquinone 7,
which is great for the heart and the bones, and it’s got nattokinase for the arteries. Only problem, it stinks. Yes, it stinks. Literally, stinks. It’s not bad. Dr. Axe: And it doesn’t taste the best either. Jordan: It doesn’t. But natto rocks. If you want to build your bones, your joints,
your immune system, it is the winner of the highest probiotics than any food on the board. Dr. Axe: You know, Jordan, you’ve already
said natto has trillions. Think about this, a lot of times people get
concerned or we both get questions, “How many probiotics is too many probiotics for people? Is a hundred too much? A hundred billion?” I mean, when someone’s taking a probiotic
supplement, how much should they be taking or is that not important? Jordan: This would be a long program in and
of itself but I believe the type of probiotic you take is more important than how much. Here’s the cool thing, whereas the lactobacilli
you need a lot because they tend to be killed off by heat and our bodies are 98.6 degrees,
so if you need something refrigerated all the time to remain potent what happens when
you consume it? Acids because we have digestive juices. Different pressure, pH, temperature, all that,
so you need a lot and it’s kind of like the sea turtle story. I grew up in Florida. We learned, as children, that a mama sea turtle
lays thousands of eggs. A certain percentage of them don’t come out
of the egg, right? They don’t hatch. Some of them make it halfway to the to the
water, some make it to the water, birds eat some, and two out of those several thousand
actually become adult turtles. Probiotics are like that. You take a whole lot so that a little can
get in, and here’s the cool thing, one probiotic cell multiplies every 20 minutes in the right
environment. They call it the “vegetative form.” Soil-based organisms such as Bacillus subtilis,
Bacillus coagulans, and Bacillus clausii can be effective in 500 million CF use. But here’s how important that is. I know this is mathematical. If the average probiotic today counts 50 billion,
and we’re talking about 500 million that’s 100 times different. So I believe that some soil-based organisms,
as found in natto, could be 100 times more potent because stomach acid doesn’t kill them,
heat doesn’t kill them, bile doesn’t kill them. You can microwave them, and that’s why they’re
soil-based organisms. Dr. Axe: Wow. Jordan: It’s really, really cool. So it’s not a numbers game. As much as it is, understanding the source
and of course food is key. If you’re consuming a probiotic that is a
fermented food, you’re even better. Dr. Axe: Yeah, so when you’re getting probiotic
supplements, look for species like Lactobacillus plantarum as a go-to from a food standpoint,
but even more importantly are the SBOs. They are like Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus
coagulan, Bacillus clausii, as Jordan’s talking about. Jordan, next thing here, Tiger nuts. All right, so now this isn’t actually a probiotic,
is it. It’s a prebiotic. Jordan: It’s a prebiotic. And some people will argue that you’re better
off taking foods that build your gut full of probiotics, and actually, four on this
board do that. You know, apple cider vinegar does not give
you probiotics. It creates an environment that is conducive. The organic acids in the nutrients are really,
really important. But I love tiger nut. It’s not really a nut. It’s a tuber. The name was certainly cool. I was driving home from Northern California
on a trip to a farm and I went in, and I saw this tiger nut horchata, and I tried it and
I just thought it was so cool. These are tubers that are grown all around
the world. Africa, they’re grown in South America, they’re
grown in in Eastern Europe, and they are a good source of resistant starch and fiber
and they are shown to boost your levels of bifidobacteria, two to threefold. And they taste good. They’re on good fats. I really love it. I eat tiger nuts. We’re now formulating products using tiger
nut which is pretty exciting. So check it out and go to your local health
food store and ask for it. That for a while resistant starch was popular
in the form of potato starch, but that’s exactly what I told people not to consume. Dr. Axe: Yeah, exactly. Jordan: With a gut issues, potatoes because
of the disaccharides. So tiger nut is a really good food and it’s
suitable for a lot of different diet programs, even a paleo type diet. Dr. Axe: Yeah, I love tiger nuts, and I think
that if you’re out there looking for a good nut milk or milk alternative, tiger nut milk
is actually a great thing to check out there, as well as we talked about, as well as the
flour for cooking and baking. All right, kvass here, one of my absolute
favorites. This is something I’ve currently have in my
kitchen, and specifically, I have beet kvass. We know beets actually help increase NO2 in
the body, nitric oxide. This is one of the reasons why a lot of athletes
today are starting to do beetroot juice and beetroot powder is because of the way it actually
helps increase nitric oxide in the body, which helps oxygenate your body that actually increases
endurance, increases stamina. Kvass is great for that reason. But also, it’s just a great form of probiotic,
specifically, Lactobacillus plantarum is found in beets or beetroot juice, and so kvass is
a great way of getting the benefits of juicing along with the benefits of getting high doses
of probiotics. So it’s a great gutshot to do. What I do, Jordan, is I don’t typically drink
a whole bottle of kvass, what I tend to do. Jordan: Because it’s a bet of some kind or
a dare. Dr. Axe: Exactly. What I tend to do is just do a swig before
a meal. And I do that before every meal, breakfast,
lunch, and dinner, is I do a big swig of kvass and it’s a great way to ignite and support
your digestive system. And I want to take a view here of what everybody
is saying here, getting some questions here as well. Okay. One question, it looks like we are getting
some questions, Jordan, about tiger nuts, about what it is exactly, that versus potato
starch, why tiger nuts are better? What’s your opinion? A little more detail on tiger nuts. Jordan: Well tiger nut’s a food. Potato starch is really a starch. It’s not a whole food. It’s low in fiber and super low in nutrients. Tiger nut has vitamins, minerals, good fats,
fiber and resistance starch, and it can be consumed . . . they’re little, small nut-looking
things. You can consume them whole. They have them peeled because the whole takes
a long time to chew, nothing wrong with that. They’ve got flour, they’ve got oil, and they’ve
got now in some trail mixes. So, tiger nuts are very small. They’re about the size of, I would say, a
peanut. Really, I mean, they’re not the same shape
but they’re really small and they taste pleasantly sweet, but the resistance starch feeds the
good microbes. But it’s not an incomplete food. Potato starch, especially, is not organic. It’s just a waste. Dr. Axe: Yeah. Jordan: Sorry. Whoever thought that was a good idea, in my
opinion, it’s not the best way to get the prebiotic effect. Dr. Axe: Great. We got a couple more questions here. I want to say this that as Jordan and I are
talking about, you know if somebody is struggling with digestive issues today, it can be caused
from a lack of probiotics in the body. In fact, Jordan, here has studies on the weight
loss and probiotics supporting that. Nutrient absorption, Jordan . . . I had a
patient years ago. Her name was Miriam who came into my office,
she was getting vitamin B shots every week for two years and her B levels every time
I test, is still weren’t normal. I put her on a diet really, really high in
probiotics, actually some ones that you created and she started doing them. Three months later, we went back and her B
levels were completely normal. And there are studies that show that if you
take probiotics, it’s probably more effective than taking multivitamins or a B vitamin and
actually increasing your levels of nutrients in your body. So just think about this, the importance of
probiotics also comes to your ability to absorb and to digest those nutrients. Jordan and I both said this, “You aren’t what
you eat, you are what you digest.” More people need probiotics, so hey, help
us spread that message right now. Take a second if you want to be on mission
with us. Punch that “Share” button if you feel like,
“You know what, more people need to know this information,” or if you’re surprised by some
of what you’re hearing today. Jordan, question here from two people who
are asking, both Lisa and Janelle and Sheree, is kombucha a good fermented food? Jordan: Kombucha is a good fermented food. It’s definitely tasty. I could have put it on the list but really,
and you might disagree I think, kombucha is more of a fun food than a therapeutic food. Folks, just so you know because I don’t want
to be anything but upfront, I love kombucha mixed with chia, and I’ve been consuming kombucha
as a treat for years and years. But I’ve not found anyone, personally not
saying there’s not anecdotal information, that has their health transformed by kombucha. One of the main reasons, it is very high in
sugar, and I believe, higher than the label’s indicated. And so I think kombucha is the coolest soda
out there. It’s really wonderful as a treat. I love it when I want something sweet but
I would not call it a therapeutic food certainly not when it stacks up to these. Dr. Axe: Absolutely. So Jordan, let’s jump into bacteriophages. Then actually, I got a great question here
I want you to answer afterwards. Jordan: Absolutely. Bacteriophage is, believe it or not, are you
ready for this, a friendly virus. It’s actually a virus that attacks E. coli. So, if you look up bacteriophage online, Wikipedia,
etc., it’s found in certain cheeses, it’s found in your tears, and in the ocean. We don’t get enough of it in our entire clinics
that practice bacteriophage therapy. But here’s the cool thing, very small doses
of bacteriophage can increase your own probiotics seven to eight fold without bloating, gas,
etc. because it’s not a fiber, right? So your body doesn’t have to adjust to it. Check out bacteriophage or phage, I think
you already really know that a “phage” means killer. So bacteriophage is a killer of bacteria,
but what it does, it rids your body of excess E. coli to allow your probiotics to grow. Pretty cool. Dr. Axe: Awesome. Next one here is cultured whey. And Jordan, this is something I know that
you’re drinking plenty of over the years. And you may not know this about Jordan, but
Jordan actually owns thousands of acres of organic land in Missouri, sort of the border
of Arkansas, beautiful land in the Ozarks area, and Jordan also owns lots of cows and
sheep and goats and one of the products Jordan has created in the past has been cultured
whey, and we know that whey is actually been known as a superfood, was recommended by Hippocrates,
the father of modern medicine, and so whey is, a lot of times today, when people hear
of whey, Jordan, they think of whey protein. We’re not talking about whey protein here,
we’re talking about cultured whey. Really a probiotic superfood, right? Jordan: Absolutely. Cultured whey acts as both a prebiotic and
a probiotic, provides lactic acid which is an organic acid, vitamins, minerals, and hydration. So it’s really, really great to boost your
gut. Some doctors we know put people on a cleanse,
a whey cleanse, or what they call a “suero cleanse.” It’s been a very successful product. It’s also great to do for rehydration, as
I mentioned in refreshment. If you can tolerate dairy, cultured whey is
amazing. Dr. Axe: Absolutely here. Last one here, bone broth. Actually, before we get that one, Jordan,
I’ve got a question here from Nicole. “What is the best thing on this board in your
mind for candida or maybe your top two or three?” Jordan: Okay, absolutely. I’m going to share about bone broth, and I’m
going to do that specifically. And we maybe can go over some other conditions. This is going to surprise you, and it surprised
me. There’s a study going on right now at a university
and I’ve been privy to some of the preclinical results, bone broth, properly prepared, has
actually increased probiotic levels in the gut. Dr. Axe: Wow. Jordan: It’s positioning bone broth as a prebiotic
or microbiome booster. So now we know that when you go on a bone
broth cleanse, you’re starving some of the bad bacteria. And that’s probably the mechanism of action
but that’s really great because we all hear bone broth’s good for the gut. Dr. Axe: Yeah. Jordan: Now we know. Why? So bone broth can grow your probiotics, and
it doesn’t have any probiotics, doesn’t have any fiber, doesn’t have any resistance starch,
it just does so many good things, one of them is as a probiotic promotant. So back to the question, what three would
I recommend for candida? Bone broth’s number one. Because what is the dictum of medicine, first
do no harm, right? So before you kill candida, you’ve got to
not feed it. Bone broth has nothing in it to feed candida
and it can do so many things for your body to fight it including arming your immune system. Dr. Axe: Love it. Jordan: Bone broth is really, really great. I actually think that kvass, I mean I could
go through all these but kvass with its lactic acid, lactic acid kills candida. Kvass could be really good go to this side
of the board and I’m going to go natto. Bacillus subtilis natto creates what they
call a zone of inhibition which doesn’t allow candida to live. So bone broth, kvass, natto. Natto you can get it in Asian market or some
fine health food stores. Kvass you now can get it at health food stores. Easy to make yourself, it really is, and affordably. Bone broth, same thing. Get going and start to lower your candida
levels by boosting your good probiotics. Dr. Axe: Love it. Great comments here. A question here from Magdalena. Jordan, what probiotics or what would you
recommend specifically for somebody who keeps getting UTIs? Jordan: That’s a great question. Now UTIs are very related, in my opinion,
to an imbalance in the gut. Any of these are really, really good. I would try to consume a few of these. I actually believe that probiotic rich foods
are better for your urinary tract and are more important on an ongoing basis than cranberry,
etc. No, cranberry and mannose and blueberry are
good when you have a UTI but ongoing, getting your probiotics is really important. Years ago, there was someone I was working
with interstitial cystitis, which is awful, and they had great results from probiotics
when nothing else would work. Dr. Axe: Wow. Awesome. So Jordan’s saying if that’s you, blueberries,
cranberries, especially, some just fresh-squeezed lemon juice and water d-mannose as a supplement,
doing herbal teas, these things are beneficial, but loading up on the probiotics, get some
sauerkraut in your diet, get some kvass in there, and get bone broth, those are all great
things to be adding in there as well. Heather asks a question, “What are the best
things for leaky gut?” I’d love to take that one and answer that. You know for leaky gut, I would say my number
one thing by far, Jordan is bone broth. When it comes to leaky gut we know the amino
acids, proline, hydroxyproline, glycine, glutamine, these are the amino acids that are high in
bone broth. They’re the most therapeutic for the gut lining,
so bone broth, hands-down if you’ve got leaky gut, it should be the first thing you’re getting
in your diet every day. What I do is I do two scoops of a bone broth
powder every morning in my morning smoothie. I did it this morning as well for breakfast. Jordan: Guilty as charged. Dr. Axe: So that would be number one. Number two, I would say I mean again, I would
probably do kvass or after that sauerkraut on there, I think kvass and sauerkraut both
are going to be tremendous for the gut lining. And then really just eating a diet that’s
in the crock pot. A lot of chicken soups and nourishing things
like that for the body, those are some of the best things you really want to consider
for leaky gut. And as another supplement, I would take a
quality probiotic supplement that has those SBO organisms that we talked about. Jordan: Absolutely. Dr. Axe: Great. All right, guys. Well, one last question here for you, Jordan. “Any ideas on the best probiotics for shingles
or in general, for finding shingles, virus of the immune system, that type of thing. Jordan: Yeah. I’m going to keep going to the well here,
but when it comes to viruses, particularly lipid envelope viruses, some of the viruses
that cause chickenpox or shingles, soil based organisms, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus coagulans,
Bacillus licheniformis, these actually produce compounds that destroy the outer coating of
viruses. Really, really important, so you’re looking
at natto or you’re looking at a supplement with SBOs and folks, I can’t say this enough,
all these foods are great for the immune system but bone broth is really, really important
because it hydrates you, nourishes you, boost your immune system, all that together. But all of these foods, I can’t emphasize
enough, if you are depressed, if you’ve got hormonal imbalance, thyroid, adrenal, leaky
gut, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, if your child has autism, it is so important
for pervasive developmental disorders to get your gut balanced. If you’ve used a lot of antibiotics, Lyme
disease, especially those who are under undergoing antibiotic treatment for a long time, if you
have Candida overgrowth, UTIs, you need to boost your probiotics. And today, perhaps, for the first time you
see 10 powerful foods or substances that you can get every day, keep in your fridge, or
your pantry to boost your probiotics and transform your life. Dr. Axe: Yeah, absolutely. So guys, hey, help us spread the word about
this video right now that we’ve just done talking about the top 10 probiotics that everybody
needs to be getting in their diet. Hey, take a second right now and punch your
“Share” button. And if you’ve enjoyed this live training or

    being diagnosed with incurable interstitial cystitis for years along with endometriosis. I too concur that these probiotics are the way to go. I personally lived off kefir & ACV. I function perfectly now and have never suffered like I did in the past. Totally cured!!! Gods gift to mankind is healthy raw food… Well done on spreading the word around these probiotics!

    Kombucha can be brewed with less sugar, it’s more of an enzymatic food than probiotic, though the one probiotic it contains is sachomyces boulardii and that’s essential for promoting good bacteria and reducing diarrhea if you get sick. Kombucha is much more than a fun soda, it has lots of good benefits. But people need to realize, It’s not just one food that’s going to change your life, it’s a combination and diverse mix of all the different probiotic foods and enzymes to change and heal your body. 😉

    I drink milk kefir 1 or 2 times a day but I heard that milk is bad for me. Do you think I should still drink Kefir?

    So when my humous starts to go fizzy, it’s ok to still eat because it’s fermenting and not going off?

    Quality NOT Quantity, I’ve believed that for a long time. Cheap food is a false economy as it cost more in the long run = ill health.

    Greetings from São Paulo, Brazil.

    I love your videos. They are full of information we need to know. But, I got confused about some products. The two kinda of foods tha oppose to each other: the probiotics and the antibiotics. I learned not to mix them. One can kill the other.

    Honey is a natural antibiotic. The rule is not to mix with probiotic food.
    Apple sider vinager is an antibiotic or a probiotic?

    Presentation. It would be better to have pictures of the products as you talk about them. Some of these foods we are not familiar to us.
