As senior citizens, I think that we are often looking for ways to enhance our well-being: 1) by changing what we eat; 2) trying to exercise; and, 3) get enough sleep. And, of course, getting our regular checkups with doctors. By taking as many of these steps as we can, we hope that it will lead us to long and healthful lives, right?
In a earlier post ((December 2018), I wrote about Probiotics. Probiotics are the living bacteria that can be good for your body. I don’t know whether any of you ran right out to your local stores, or drugstores, to buy items to consume in keeping up with the Probiotics craze. As we consider this popular trend, I want to call your attention to the fact that it turns out there is much more we still don’t know about Probiotics. According to Dr. Alfred Roston, a gastroenterologist at Westchester Endoscopy, “the bacteria in probiotics won’t affect everybody in the same way”. Below are some suggestions if you plan on taking probiotics supplements, (which, by the way, are not FDA regulated).
♥ Always consult your doctor first
♥ Eat a well-balanced, plant-based diet
♥ Add fermented foods to your diet like, yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kombucha*

Wishing you wellness!
