How can one include Probiotics in our diet?
The best known and available source is “Dahi” or Yogurt. Indian fermented food such as idli, dosa, Dhokla is rich in probiotics. One can find probiotics even in ice cream, chocolate, juices, refrigerated juices, fermented milk, such as “Yakult”, protein bars, protein cookies etc. It’s hard to obtain all of the healthy amounts of probiotics through diet alone, which is why daily probiotic supplements are suggested. Taking a high-quality probiotic supplement like can supply you with all essential bacteria strains that you need for optimal health.
