Did you know that 70-80%  of your immune system resides in your gut, your G.I. Tract. Humans wouldn't be alive without the good bacteria that resides in our body. We have a symbiotic relationship.

 

Probiotic foods which are known as fermented foods (they are cultured a certain way) and probiotic supplements are needed to assist the good bacteria to do their work in your body. 

 

Here's 5 probiotic foods that you may want to try. Your bacteria will thank you for it. 

 

Just know that most commercial bought yogurts are loaded with sugar which negates any benefits. You can easily make your own nut yogurts or dairy yogurts. Recipes abound on the internet. Kefir is another fermented food, not mentioned in the article. There are water-kefirs and dairy kefirs.

Integrieren Sie fermentierte Lebensmittel in Ihren Speiseplan!

Fermentiere Lebensmittel haben eine jahrtausendalte Tradition und galten schon immer als gesund. Sie sind gut verdaulich und steigern die Bioverfügbarkeit von Nahrungsmittelbestandteilen. Sie halten sich länger und entwickeln ihren ureigenen Geschmack. Sauerkraut, Sauerteig, Joghurt, gereifter Käse, Wein, Bier, die Würzpaste Miso, Tempeh, Essig, Tee -  überall sind Bakterien aktiv!

In Bioläden und Hofläden finden Sie auch Milchprodukte, die aus Vorzugsmilch hergestellt wurden.  Je natürlicher desto besser!

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, December 17, 2013 1:34 PM

Water is the lifeblood of our body as we cannot live without it. For many people, myself included (years ago, not now) water can be difficult to drink.

 

How I solved this issue was to put a slice of lemon in the water to jazz it up and it worked beautifully.

 

This article lists other jazzy ways to make drinking water more acceptable for more people's taste buds. Of course these ideas are universal even if most people haven't thought of them.

 

Putting cucumbers in the water gives a refreshing twist and since cucumbers are almost 90% water, the drinker gets an added benefit.

 

Adding different fruits as I did with the lemon. It's a no-brainer. You get to pick your fruit of choice.

 

Adding mint gives a refreshing flavor. And if you have a garden with spearmint or wintergreen, you can mix and match.

 

Fruit cubes is a different way to get your fruit and jazz up your water at the same time. As the fruit cube melts, the flavor of the fruit refreshes your water.

 

And adding ginger is a nice twist. Ginger is known for helping with digestive issues. You can add it to room temperature water or hot water.

 

One more caveat. The article mentions drinking cold water. Cold temperature water constricts our muscles. It is far better to drink room temperature water. Your body will thank you.

 

And do drink either pure, filtered, or ionized water. Tap and bottled water contain toxic chemicals that harm your body. I promote Multipure Water Filtration with carbon block technology, recommended by Consumer Reports and Environmental Working Group.

Excerpt fromThe 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth

By Jonny Bowden

According to C. Leigh Broadhurst, PhD, in her excellent book on diabetes, the best way to use cinnamon to help lower blood sugar and improve type 2 diabetes is to put 3 rounded tablespoons of ground cinnamon and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of baking sodea (less if sodium is a problem for you) in a 32-ounce (quart) canning jar. Fill the jar with boiling water and let it steep at room temperature till it's cool. Strain or decant the liquid, discard the grounds, put a lid on the jar, and stick it in the fridge. Drink one 8-ounce cup of the tea four times per dy. After one to three weeks you can drop down to one or two cups a day. Type 1 diabetics can use it too, but should start with only one or two cups per day and increase by one cup per week, monitoring blood sugar closely.
