Probiotics can save your life

Feeling sluggish? Constipated? Grouchy? Are you easily prone to catching colds?
How would you rate your immune system: Unflappable or sinkable?
Perhaps the culprit to your weakened immunity is that you don’t have enough healthy bacteria in your intestines, what is called probiotics. A stressful life style, an imbalanced diet, too many fast foods and sweets, and a reliance on antibiotics may have destroyed those healthy fighters that inhabit the crevices of your beloved colon.
So your immediate assignment to improve your overall health is to put down that soft drink and pick up the yogurt that is rich in acidophilus. It’s best to make your own at home; besides it is easy and convenient. Treat yourself to a serving of this friendly bacteria daily as it will help boost your immune system while improving your digestion.
And start chomping on anything with chlorophyll, except your neighbor’s lawn. Green leafy vegetables and sprouts help to restore the healthy bacteria to your intestines. In addition to the yogurt, miso and soy sauce are your friends as these fermented foods are extremely restorative. m
However, if your condition is more severe due to long-term illness and treatments, you will need to consult with a professional for the appropriate course of action.
