Research has shown that there are links between the health of a person’s gut (or digestive system) and their overall health. There are many ways to improve gut health but one of the most popular is by taking probiotic supplements in drinks. Probiotics refer to bacteria that help to support the digestive system and strengthen the immune system. Since drinks that contain probiotics have live bacteria within them, these are sometimes referred to as live culture drinks.
These drinks have health benefits since they promote the healthy and effective function of the digestive system and can fight off other bacteria that can cause chronic disease and illness. There is also research that shows probiotics can improve the body’s immune response and even reduce the risk of heart disease. Probiotics can also be sourced from natural foods such as yoghurt, sauerkraut and fermented soy products.
