As men, we’re all looking at aging and the various illnesses that can come with it. Probiotic foods are recognized to fight against diabetes, cancer, and even heart disease. Any fermented food does the trick, as getting the results of a probiotic diet comes exclusively from the cultures of beneficial bacteria that are packed into the food.
Pickles So common that we tend to take them for granted, pickles are probably the most readily available probiotic food. Remember, they’re simply fermented cucumbers. Pickles can be found in any supermarket, but they’re even better if you make them yourself.
Yogurt This is one of the most common probiotic foods available. Unlike many probiotic foods, you don’t need to find an exotic food store to get your hands on it. Goat milk is the best ingredient to look for. All yogurt that you eat should be sugar-free. Bacteria that make this better are acidophilus, lactobacillus, thermophillus, bifudus, acidophilus, bulgaricus.
Miso This famous Japanese food is made of fermented barley, beans, and rye. The most common way to get a quick fix is hopping into a sushi bar and ordering miso soup. Our two friends bifidus and lactobacilli are here again.
Kefir This is just like yogurt, except that it includes fermented grains as well. This is best if you buy it organic. The bacteria here are bifidus and lactobacilli.
Sauerkraut Especially rich in bacteria, sauerkraut is made from fermented cabbage. It’s plentiful in vitamins A, B, C, E.
Since the measure for a good probiotic is the successful fermentation of a food, there are many, many other probiotic options. This list, however, will give you a quick and simple start on adding probiotic foods to your diet.
