There are very few supplements I believe EVERYONE needs…
And probiotics are one of them.
Unless you’re eating fermented foods like natto, certain hard cheeses, kimchi, or fermented vegetables EVERY DAY, you’re NOT getting enough.
That’s not where you want to be, folks; these helpful buggers have far too many benefits to ignore!
Hopefully you’ve already begun (or want to begin ASAP).
But today, I want to share with you an essential tip…
Unless you’re doing this ONE THING… chances are, your efforts are going to waste!
Getting probiotics in your corner
There’s a battle raging in your gut.
Two different classes of probiotics are constantly warring – the “good” and the “bad”.
It’s like any classic western movie: the good guys wear white hats and the bad guys have black hats.
Despite the label, you still need these “bad” bacteria. They’re essential to your good health and are needed to strike a balance. But they should only comprise about 15 percent of the bacteria in your gut.
The problem is sometimes they overtake your “good” bacteria– even if you’re taking a supplement.
There are many reasons for this, but what you need to know is one thing…
Vitamin A can rein these guys in.
They keep the bad bacteria at bay, helping your gut strike the balance it needs so you’re in tip-top shape.
Even better, vitamin A is incredibly easy to get into your diet– and even tasty!
Here are some of the foods you should be eating to get the most out of your probiotics:
– Sweet potatoes
– Fatty fish like salmon
– Olive oil
– Cherry juice
– Organ meats –especially liver
– Cod liver oil
You can also find vitamin A supplements online or at your local health food store…
Just make sure to check with your doc before starting any vitamin A supplementation regimen to make sure it’s healthy for you. In sustained, too-high doses, it can be toxic for your liver, where the vitamin is stored.
Oh, and when it comes to probiotics, choose a supplement from a maker you trust (preferably one with multiple strains of live bacteria in the billions, not millions).
Take it every day—with plenty of water!
