Probiotics restore the composition of your gut flora – the gut microbiome – and introduce beneficial functions to gut microbial communities, to help prevent inflammation. Research shows that they reduce common biomarkers of inflammation, including C-reactive protein (CRP). Supporting your microbiome frees you of hunger, cravings for unhealthy foods, and the feeling that your metabolism has gone out of control. Imbalanced microbiome provokes inflammation, creates hunger, creates insulin resistance and leads to obesity. You can change your microbiome quickly. Within just a few hours you can shift into an unhealthy state that creates weight gain and within a few days you can restore it to a healthy state. Have probiotic yoghurt, home-made buttermilk, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kombucha or kimchi.
