For our last immune system booster in Effingham IL we are going to talk about probiotics or good bacteria. 80% of your immune system is located in your digestive system so if it is full of unhealthy "bad bacteria" then there is a good chance your immune system is suppressed. Some scientist now believe that supplementing with probiotics is one of the most beneficial additions to your health. Your body contains 100 trillion bacteria so it is very important to ingest some form of probiotic on a weekly basis. As a matter of fact this is one of 2 supplements I recommend to all my patients to promote good health. There are many sources of probiotics including yogurt, fermented foods like sauerkraut, and in capsule form. All of these work well and it is a good idea to mix up sources to get as many strains as possible. It is important to remember that eating right is going to protect your gut flora, so try to limit sugars and grains because they feed the bad bacteria.
