Most normal adults take antibiotics more than once a year, due to various infections. But did you know, the antibiotics kill the good microbes along with the horrible ones? That’s collateral damage. But don’t let your health suffer.
When I wrote this book on Probiotic food, I wanted it to be permafree. But free things few appreciate. That’s why making it available on the Amazon Great Indian Sale is the right way for me. It’s free on 20th January and 23rd January worldwide PST time. When my readers give me support and encouragement, this is the least I can do. The tricky part about promoting your own book is you run the risk of burnout and sounding repetitive. But that’s where the topic is important.
Why did I want to write a book on curd and Probiotic supplements?
I saw a very popular actress, advertising a very popular sweet probiotic drink. It was one of the biggest brands worldwide. But if you are a mom you read food labels, right? That’s where all these sugary probiotic snacks, drinks and food aimed at children made me grimace. Who would want to put so much of sugar inside their bodies in the name of healthy bacteria?
The problem with feeding children these are manyfold when laden with sugar. Sugar addiction is real and younger the exposure, worse it is. If you can’t get nutrients inside without coating in sugar, there needs to be a strategy change. Will these bacteria survive the onslaught of sugar overload? Is there any advantage of these extra calories, artificial flavoring agents over natural food and supplements?
Childhood obesity has a lot to do with food choices by parents than anything else. Listen to the Podcast overview of a beginners guide to Probiotic.
Probiotics are not medicines. They have much fewer rules controlling their production in India. The quality control is however much needed. If the probiotic is not viable, it will not help you. They can improve gut health, mental health and have immune protection action against cancer. But all the research is still not conclusive. That’s why you need to separate the truth from the myths. I am not selling or promoting any probiotic brands, even though I have a few favorites. Neither will you find links to products in the book.
What you will find is a no-holds-barred discussion on why your bowel motility has a lot to do with your happiness than you knew.
Who will be helped by Probiotics?
- Digestive issues
- Irregular motions
- Mental fatigue
- General fatigue
- Skin or hair problem
- Low general immunity
- Vague allergies
When should you take probiotics?
You need to take it with food or half an hour before a meal for best effect.
Will probiotic in drinks help you?
- It depends. If it has the right amount of viable organism which survives the sugar overdose. Research backed proof is limited to support this.
- The best before date also mentions the viable number of bacteria.
- You are not obese or having a blood sugar problem.
Is probiotic food better than supplements?
Both need viable organisms. With natural probiotics, you have no way of knowing the amount of viable organisms. Supplements are helpful if from a good brand. Either way, you need to take it consistently for good health and optimum effect.
