A new article from eProbiotics.com describes how cultured vegetables provide the body with probiotics that strengthen the immune system and prevent many illnesses.
The article details how researchers continue to discover a seemingly endless number of health benefits provided by probiotics. Not only do probiotics, the healthy bacteria found in the digestive tract, support healthy digestion, they also support the immune system by fighting off secondary infections, protecting against the flu, and preventing outbreaks of eczema and the common cold.
Probiotics, or the good bacteria, make up nearly 85% of the bacteria in the body and are intricate in maintaining the balance that keeps the digestive and immune systems operating properly. Health issues, including infection, digestive disturbances, allergies and even the flu become more likely when the ratio of good to bad bacteria falls below 9:1.
