How Probiotics Support a Healthy Gut & Immune System
The beginning of Fall is especially exciting for us because it signals the start of the fresh orange and grapefruit season. The nights are cooler, the kids are back in school, and holidays with family are something to look forward to. It’s also an extremely busy time for most people, and this can lead to food habits getting out of whack, not always making the healthiest decisions, and ending up with the inevitable fall cold – or worse – the flu.
That’s why being good to your gut is so important, so your body stays healthy and balanced all season. What’s the secret to a healthy gut? Well, it’s not exactly a secret, but the answer is: PROBIOTICS.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are naturally occurring healthy bacteria that live in your intestine and fight the bad bacteria. When the natural bacteria in your body is off balance and there is more of the bad stuff than the good stuff, usually because of an unhealthy diet, you might experience constipation or diarrhea, weight gain, or skin conditions. Having healthy bacteria, or probiotics, is essential to your digestive health.
Where can I get probiotics?
Probiotics are found in some yogurts and cheeses, sauerkraut, kimchi, and dietary supplements. We offer a strand of healthy probiotics in our Indian River Select® Brand Orange Juice with Probiotics, called GanedenBC30®, so you can enjoy the benefits from your morning cup of OJ.
