My homemade yoghurt and kefir full of soo beneficial probiotics for our gut. Why is that? Why should we ferment them ourselves instead of buying ready to go products? Any ideas?

Probiotics -from latin -pro bios- for life- works wonders for our immunity, digestion and when feeling bloated.

It is easy to disturb the natural bacterial flora in our gut,
like for example because of:
1.contraceptive pills,
2. antibiotics,
3.chronic stress,
4. alcohol,
5.bad eating habits, like too much sugar, processed foods and artificial sweeteners,
6. smoking
which is why we should support ourselves with those wonderful little bacterias that live in the fermented products like yoghurt, sour cream and kefir.

In the homemade fermented products your gut will get many many more strains of beneficial bacterias than if you got them from the shop. When you make a yoghurt or kefir by yourself, you obtain a real bomb of probiotics and you are sure there are no additives or nasty things that prolong the shelf life of the product. Sugar that is added( it is added in huge amounts, especially to those with fruit) to the probiotic yoghurts from the shop does not make a probiotic yoghurt a probiotic one anymore( sugar is the feast for the bacterias in the gut which grow and destroy the good ones). What is great about homemade dairy fermented drinks is that they are much better tolerated by lactose intolerant people.
