Yogurt is a rich source of probiotics and is easily available at supermarkets. Look for yogurt that states “active” or “live cultures” clearly on the label, as not all yogurt has live cultures. These contain large amounts of live bacteria that survive well in the intestinal tract and improve your digestion.
The type of yogurt you eat – Greek, natural, low-fat – doesn’t matter, but the brand does. Each brand uses different cultures, and some make pasteurised products which actually kill off the bacteria. So read the packaging before you buy.
