Probiotics for dairy-free lifestyles

Sunday, March 10, 2019
Ever since probiotics came onto the scene, the traditional yoghurt has been associated with being a great food source for sending good bacteria straight to your gut. Even more recently, kefir (a fermented milk drink) has been praised for its strong probiotic nature. But, if you have a dairy-free lifestyle, it can seem a little trickier to get the gut love you might need.

Symptoms of dairy intolerance include:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Gas and indigestion
  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Red and itchy skin
  • Rashes or hives.

Getting enough gut love

Acquiring probiotics through food consumption is a good start. Foods such as tempeh, kimchi and sauerkraut are all praised for improving your health with their probiotic qualities. However, there are over 500 strands of probiotics and most foods only contain a few of these. That’s when a probiotic supplement can help.

Be wary of dairy

For many of you, consuming dairy can disrupt your digestive system. This can be a problem when it comes to choosing the best probiotic supplement, as they can contain fillers and binders which are often sourced from foods containing dairy.

NCFM acidophilus may assist those who suffer from lactose intolerance. If you have been taking a course of antibiotics, a probiotic such as Inner Health Plus Dairy Free may also assist in maintaining the balance of good bacteria.
