The Power of Probiotics

 

Looking for a way to improve your gut health? You may have heard of the term “probiotics,” and think it seems counter-intuitive to consume bacteria on purpose. Today, we’re going to break down how these live cultures are truly on your side and can help maintain a healthy environment inside your body’s gastrointestinal tract.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are “good” bacteria, similar to those naturally found in your gut. There are over 500 different strains of probiotics that can be found naturally through foods, beverages, and supplements. Not all probiotics affect our health in the same way. Similar to vitamins and minerals, each strain has its own unique health benefits.

What are the benefits of probiotics?

The active cultures in probiotics help keep our gut flora in balance. This can also improve our immune function and digestive health. Probiotics have been shown to help treat diarrhea, vaginal infections, and can help prevent milk allergies, heart attacks, and hypertension. Probiotics can assist in preventing symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, and colitis.

Where can you find probiotics?

You may not know it, but you probably consume probiotics in your everyday diet. Foods like yogurt, cheese, and kefir products naturally contain probiotics. Other fermented, non-dairy foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, and tempeh also have beneficial probiotics. For those who do not include enough of these foods in their diets, probiotic supplements are available.

Be on the lookout for our next blog post sharing all about the unique types of fermented foods and how to boost your probiotic intake with them!

What our clients are saying

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”
