Tip 18- Immune Boosting Foods #3

Eat more bacteria! Stick with good bacteria from yogurt.

Your stomach/intestines have over 500 varieties of bacteria. Good bacteria (also called, probiotics) help to increase the numbers of good guys, while crowding out the bad guys in your gut. The bulk of your immune system is located in your gut. If you can increase the good bacteria you will be boosting your immune system.

Yogurt has been shown to create more white blood cells (disease-fighters).

Today’s tip: All yogurts are not created equal. Make sure you choose a yogurt that is low in sugar (less than 10 grams per serving). Your best choice will probably be Greek yogurt, which is known to be low in sugar.
