What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial forms of gut bacteria that help stimulate the natural enzymes and processes that keep our digestive organs functioning properly. For these live bacteria to keep you healthy, you have to keep them healthy. There are two ways to do this, and I recommend a combination of both—take probiotic supplements and eat probiotic foods.

We all know the great health benefits of probiotics, however, not all of us know how to take advantage of these health benefits. Below is a list I put together to outline the best probiotic foods for you to add to your diet. I would also recommend buying the organic version of all these probiotic-rich foods.

Probiotic Foods to Add to Your Diet

1. Yogurt

One of the best probiotic foods is live-cultured yogurt, especially handmade. Look for brands made from goat’s milk and infused with extra forms of probiotics like lactobacillus or acidophilus. Goat’s milk is a rich source of proteins, vitamins, and minerals while having better digestibility and lower allergenicity than cow’s milk.[1] Goat milk yogurt is particularly high in probiotics like thermophillus, bifudus, and bulgaricus, and can be infused with extra forms of probiotics like lactobacillus or acidophilus.

Be sure to read the ingredients list, as not all yogurt is made equally. Many popular brands are filled with high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and artificial flavors and are way too close to being a nutritional equivalent of sugary, fatty ice cream.

2. Kefir

Similar to yogurt, this fermented dairy product is a unique combination of goat’s milk and fermented kefir grains. High in lactobacilli and bifidus bacteria, kefir is also rich in antioxidants. Look for a good, organic version at your local health food shop.

3. Sauerkraut

Made from fermented cabbage (and sometimes other vegetables), sauerkraut is not only extremely rich in healthy live cultures, but might also help with reducing allergy symptoms. Sauerkraut is also rich in vitamins A, B, C, and K.[3]

4. Dark Chocolate

Chocolate itself doesn’t contain probiotics, but it was found to be a very effective carrier for probiotics. Chocolate helps them survive the extreme pHs of the digestive tract to make it to the colon.[4] Because of this protective ability probiotics can be added to high-quality dark chocolate. This is only one of the many health benefits of chocolate.

5. Microalgae

This refers to super-food ocean-based plants such as spirulina, chlorella, and blue-green algae. While not a probiotic itself, microalgae can act as a prebiotic, which means that it feeds and nourishes the probiotics already in your gut. These prebiotic foods have been shown to increase beneficial bacteria and improve gastrointestinal health.[5] They also offer the most amount of energetic return, per ounce, for the human system.

6. Miso Soup

Probiotic Foods - MisoMiso is one the mainstays of traditional Japanese medicine and is commonly used in macrobiotic cooking as a digestive regulator. Made from fermented rye, beans, rice or barley, adding a tablespoon of miso to some hot water makes an excellent, quick, probiotic-rich soup, full of lactobacilli and bifidus bacteria.[6]

Beyond its important live cultures, miso is extremely nutrient-dense and believed to help neutralize the effects of environmental pollution, alkalinize the body and stop the effects of carcinogens in the system.[7]

7. Pickles

Believe it or not, the provincial pickle packs a punch of prime probiotics.[8] In the U.S., the term “pickle” usually refers to pickled cucumbers specifically, but most vegetables can be pickled. All of them boast the same briny goodness and probiotic potential.

8. Tempeh

A great substitute for meat or tofu, tempeh is a fermented, probiotic-rich grain made from soybeans.[9] A great source of vitamin B12,[10] this vegetarian food can be sauteed, baked or eaten crumbled on salads. If prepared correctly, tempeh is also very low in salt, which makes it an ideal choice for those on a low-sodium diet.

9. Kimchi

An Asian form of pickled sauerkraut, kimchi is an extremely spicy and sour fermented cabbage, typically served alongside meals in Korea. Besides beneficial bacteria, Kimchi is also a great source of vitamin C, B vitamins, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, potassium, and dietary fiber.[11] Kimchi is one of the best probiotic foods you can add to your diet, assuming you can handle the spice, of course.

10. Kombucha Tea

Kombucha is a form of fermented tea that contains a high amount of healthy gut bacteria.[12] This probiotic drink has been used for centuries and is believed to help increase your energy, enhance your well-being and maybe even help you lose weight.[13] However, kombucha tea may not be the best fit for everyone, especially those that have had problems with candida.

Probiotic Supplements

For excellent digestive health, fill your diet with as many prebiotic and probiotic foods as possible. I additionally recommend taking a good probiotic supplement. I recommend Floratrex™, a unique formula of 23 probiotic strains that helps support your digestive tract and boosts your immune system.

    Great list with a few I wasn’t aware of. More reasons to eat chocolate? Cool! 🙂

    I continually hear great things about the benefits of Miso Soup. I didn’t like it at first but the taste is growing on me…

  • Emilee

    This list is a bit misleading on the veggies…you DON’T want pickled sauerkraut, cucumbers/pickles, kimchi etc… you want CULTURED. “pickled” means it has been soaked in vinegar. No probiotics there.

    If you aren’t going to make your own with a cultured starter or whey and let it ferment.

  • Adam

    Great list of probiotic foods. I need to add some of these to my diet. I love dark chocolate, so maybe i’ll just eat more of that. 🙂

  • Michelle

    This is a very timely list for me. I was just talking to my sister about why we needed to get more probiotics in our diet. She can’t afford a daily probiotic supplement, because she is on a fixed diet. But I’m hoping we can both get the same benefits through our diet. Thanks for the list of probiotic foods!

  • Doggy

    WOW. I never knew that there were foods with probiotics in them., besides yogurt. I eat yogurt every morning to get the beneficial bacteria in my system, because I can’t afford a probiotic supplement. This list of probiotic foods is very helpful for me. Thanks!

  • Joel

    Pickles and sauerkraut are good ONLY if you make them yourself or get the expensive variety at the health food store. The modern methods of manufacturing are not at all the same as the traditional methods.

    Kimchi, on the other hand, I have bought from Walmart, and it has obviously been made the traditional way, because the jar is in danger of breaking it’s seal if you leave it too long…obviously (good) live bacteria in there. Of course, if Kimchi ever became popular enough to become a mass food, they’d do the same thing to it that they do to pickles and sauerkraut.

  • jasmine

    Comprehensive list! I would add that homemade sauerkraut is easy to make and vastly superior to shop bought (and you can add whatever takes your fancy!), and homemade kefir can be successfully made with organic cow’s milk. So nice to add probiotics to the many advantages of eating raw cacao.

  • sharon

    can you list a source for your claim that chocolate contains probiotics?

  • Dr. Edward Group
  • Kevin

    I recently made cheese and have a ton of whey left over. Does this contain probiotics and other healthy nutrients? I did heat the milk to 145 degrees F for 30 minutes. Thanks for the list!

  • Ravi

    My son as high allergies to diary products – What would be good probiotic substitute to yougurt and kefir?

    Thanks in advance

  • Olivia

    Other probiotic foods would be Kombucha.. which is wonderful, it creates probiotics as well as anti tumor and anti cancer properties! You can make this yourself in large food grade glass containers 🙂

    And there’s also Sour Poi. If you can get taro then you can make poi and you wanna let it sit for a few days or a week or month and keep it in a jar able to breath without anything being able to get in and contaminate including fruit flies that like to lay eggs in poi x.x Make sure there’s a thin layer of water on top to keep it from drying out. Sour poi is amazing for repairing the digestion as well as your DNA 🙂

    Make sure the taro or poi you get is non-GMO and organic, this is very important. GMO’s mutate and destroy our DNA and non organic foods are heavily pesticided so your poi won’t be as beneficial if it were tainted in this way.

    Miso soup, probiotic supplements (maybe greens supplements, if chlorella, etc. work? Those can taste good.), or fermented vegetables like sauerkraut and kimchi (can be thrown into many dishes/meals creatively) are quite good.

    Actually unsure if miso and microalgaes actually has probiotics from my own research – just took that from above. 🙂

    Hi really enjoyed reading your post.
    I was actually researching something else. When sauerkraut mase from fermented cabbage came up so I thought I would have a look. I have never tasted sauerkraut and one I know what it is made from not sure I want to. But one thing I do like the taste of is dark chocolate. Never even considered that it would be in a top 10 for probiotics. So now I can enjoy the taste and get a benefit as well. Not many food stuffs give you that

    So thanks again very informative.

  • Veggie RD

    Clarifying a misconception about tempeh and B12:

    Tempeh, miso, sea vegetables, and other plant foods are sometimes reported to contain vitamin B12. These products, however, are not reliable sources of the vitamin. The standard method for measuring vitamin B12 in foods measures both active and inactive forms of vitamin B12. The inactive form (also called analogues) actually interferes with normal vitamin B12 absorption and metabolism. When only active vitamin B12 is measured, plant foods including fermented soyfoods and sea vegetables do not contain significant amounts of active vitamin B12.

  • Veggie RD

    I would also like a source.
    Please do not eat chocolate as a health food! Even with its beneficial phytonutrients, it is still high in saturated fat. Eat it for pleasure, not for health.

  • dhunna

    It would be much bettwr if some one could suggest Indian food or supplements to understand better.

  • e

    unlike most of you, i am trying to avoid lactobacilli as i have an overgrowth of this. can you tell me what foods to avoid eating? i eat a lot of cheddar cheese but can not find if this is high in lb or not. should i avoid this as well?

  • Stephanie

    I love kefir, but since I am now vegan, I am looking into trying to make coconut kefir. I just found out that fermented foods are higher in histamines, which can produce symptoms similar to allergies if their levels are too high. Since my wife has been having terrible allergies, I am worried that fermented food would only make it worse for her.

  • Paul

    You wrote about kefir: “this fermented dairy product is a unique combination of goat milk and fermented grains”.

    Your wording is going to confuse and mislead people.
    The fermentation agent is called “kefir grains”, but there is no actual grain used. Kefir can be made with most any kind of milk, not just goat milk. You don’t seem very familiar with the subject.

    Kefir offers a broader spectrum of probiotics than yogurt.
    One’s gut can be reseeded using kefir, but not using yogurt.

  • Gee

    Anyone know if soy yogurt has the same benefits for iodine since I am supposed to avoid dairy?

  • Nicola

    Well it’s a good thing saturated fat is good for you than. Not saying chocolate is healthy, but vilifying saturated fats is absolutely ridiculous.

  • Emily

    Do the store-bought versions of foods such as pickles and sauerkraut contain probiotcs? I thought these were considered “dead” and only homemade were considered “live” ?

  • Lynne

    How much kimchi should I eat each day? I intend to use it now as part of my daily diet.

  • medcine woman

    Pickled corn on the cob or pickled beans strait from the crock.If you cook fermented foods it kills the good bacteria in it.Raw fermented foods are the best.

  • Rrhoidshelper

    I recently started eating kimchi three times a day, and am now eating all the foods I had to avoid because they gave me hemorrhoids (chocolate, processed foods, spicy food, fried food, etc., etc.)

    Also, a great way to eat miso is mixed with vinegar as sumiso. You just put a bit of miso in a small dish, add some vinegar and mix. Then eat as a dipping sauce with raw vegetables.

  • The Brigadier

    Soy has been found to block the absorption of iodine because it has receptors that fit iodine’s in the thyroid, female breasts, ovaries and the prostate glands as well as several other glandular systems.. Coupled with perchlorate that is found in many rocket fuels that has now spread around the entire planet and is in the air and soil of everywhere, soy in any form should be strenuously avoided.

    Orientals eat so much seafood and soy that they manage to absorb the bare minimum of iodine to survive, but inland orientals who eat soy and no seafood plants or animals have all of the serious deleterious effects of iodine deficiency.

    Bromine is another chemical that fits iodine receptors and for some unknown reason, it has replaced iodine as a flour processing agent and is in all of our bread, cereal and flour based confections. This has been quite possibly the worst thing our nation has done for the public health. The use of bromine in flour production should be immediately outlawed as a severe public health danger and iodine should be used as soon as possibly.

    Conditions like diabetes, autism and another dozen including preventable breast and prostate cancers have exploded since flour manufacturers began substituting bromine for iodine. Write the FDA about this and help to get this changed. We appear to be eating more than enough iodine since it is fed to livestock and its in our table salt, but eating flour products like bread negates much of the iodides we eat daily and many of us suffer from mild to moderate iodine deficiency as a result and this is a serious growing health disaster.

    Once last thing. Half of iodine in a child bearing mother resides in their breasts. This is where infants get their iodine while breast feeding. Infants who get insufficient iodine in the womb or as an infant can grow fifteen to twenty IQ points dumber. If your child was normally destined to have a mean IQ of 100 then he or she will end up little smarter than Forest Gump and I doubt if they will have his exceptional luck.

    Lack of iodine in the diet is the leading cause of mental retardation in the world and even in the first world nations its lack contributes to the dumbing down of our populations. Take this seriously folks and actively eat foods that contain iodine and the avoid the ones that block its intake like all soy products and all bread flours treated with bromine.

    Modern medicine started in the 1700s when a French doctor successfully treated goiters with soluble iodine. It was the first disease successfully treated as a mineral deficiency. We can turn this around. Write the FDA!

  • Max

    I had heard that cheese curds are high in both probiotics as well as Vit. K2….is that your understanding as well?

  • Jack

    “Orientals?” Really?

  • The Brigadier

    What’s a matter with that description Jack, not PC enough for you? Just like a liberal to drag a political argument into a health forum. Geez Louise the lunacy never ends.

  • D

    It’s racist, no just “not PC” please use the term Asians when referring to people of the East, it’s utterly offensive

  • cindy

    Sorry, I am sure you meant no offense in your term…it is more of a time we grew up thing. It was once explained to me simply as Oriental is a thing (Vase) and Asian refers to people. Have a good day.

  • Tecpedz94

    This is all wrong kefir and yogurt is a horrible way to get probiotics. In fact it shouldn’t be consumed at all unless eaten raw organic dairy which is better than all that pasteurized stuff.

  • Tecpedz94

    No only un-fermented soy can cause issues, eating fermented soy, non GMO of course or organic such as miso, tempeh, natto is a better alternative and is in fact healthy. (I didnt feel like reading your whole thing so sorry if it didn’t go good with what you stated.)

  • The Brigadier

    Oriental means “Easterner” Occidental means ‘Westerner.” So if I call someone from the East Coast or New England a Easterner or North Easterner then its a racial ephithet. Some of you are truly sad, blaming everything on whites while claiming victimhood. This is what America has devolved into. I for one will be glad when the entire insane thing breaks down and we can start over sanely. Bye little Oriental, this Occidental won’t be responding anymore to your low self-esteem posts.

  • The Brigadier

    People who get salmonella are never really the same. I’ve seen people recover from dengue fever that had fewer long lasting effects than salmonella. Pasteurization kills salmonella completely. If you want to take the risk then do so, but don’t suggest the same to others without pointing out the substantial risk involved. I really hope you never have to suffer the 24 hours of constant vomiting and diarrhea that the infected suffer. Mental and physical effects of that will diminish you for the rest of your life and I am not talking about the memories of it.

  • The Brigadier

    All forms of soy including fermented soy fit the same iodine receptors all over the body. If you are going to eat soy products then take your water soluble iodine source at least a half hour before eating the soy. The receptors will fill up with iodine as they are supposed to and the other ones won’t be. That also goes for anything made of flour, oats, and foods with bromine or fluorine. Take your water soluble iodine the very first thing in the morning and wait a half hour before eating else.

  • The Brigadier

    I heard the other night on Coast to Coast that GMO crops now have reached 85% of all the crops in America. Monsanto, George Soros and Bill Gates are all behind the chemtrail spraying. There are now also large ships that have 500 miles long chemtrails and they sail under the various jetstreams. These are visible on the NASA satellite feeds. Go on line and look at the Pacific and see them for yourself.

    Oceanographers have been begging our government to stop the chemtrail spraying because the aluminum oxide, strontium and barium sprayed are responsible for the acidification of the oceans. This acidification has been dissolving the limestone that covers massive amounts of methane along the world’s continental shelves.

    Oceanographers are saying that the methane will raise the world’s temperatures to over 150 degrees. In thirty years the world will be sterile except for burrowing animals. This will be the same extinction event that killed off life that resulted in the rise of the saurians.

    The government told them three weeks ago they were going to use Tesla’s HAARP weather control/weapon to burn off the methane. The strange explosions reported all over the continent late at night the last several weeks may be just that. Still Monsanto is the most evil corporation on the planet and they are going to forcibly starve off two thirds of the world’s population and then replant the world with their genetically aluminum resistant plants.

    If you don’t believe this,read the reports of the massive die offs of rain and coniferous forests going on around the world right now. Droughts now ring the planet and it has nothing to do with global warming. The lush forests around Mt. Shasta are now dry any yellow because the aluminum oxide that is also destroying farmland sucks moisture out of air. This will make the Monsanto chiefs the rullers of the world as they will totally control the world’s food supplies and make them fortunes the world has never seen concentrated into a few hands..

    Soros is now buying massive farm acreage that are no longer crop productive around the country for literally pennies on the dollar, and Gates has invested his billions in Monsanto also. Gates father was an old eugenisist who wanted to reduce the black population in America. Looks like junior is going to finish his evil plans. Sleep tight all and if you keep your heads buried in the sand, you will either die miserably or wake up a serf working for your new Monsatanto rulers. Email your corrupt congress people and tell them you will vote them out of office if they don’t stop the chemtrail spraying immediately. We probably only have two years left before the damage goes beyond our ability to reverse it.

    ummm look alive veggie rd, if it has a lot of mono-saturated fats then by all means eat a ton of it. mono-saturated fats are extremely healthy and ironically benificial even to people trying to lose weight. It would defiantly be the sugar to be worried about.

    Most probiotic supplements are about one dollar a day, very similiar to the yogurt. Yogurt, having nearly 20 grams sugar, feeds the bad bacteria gut while you provide a very very mall amount of good bacteria.

    I see a lot of people eating yogurt because it’s “healthy.” And when you ask them what’s so healthy about it, they don’t know. but then again they are eating the artificial yogurt. With that being said, i find it sad that many people are not health-educated and don’t know the difference between something that’s mass-produced and something that has live/beneficial ingredients.

    Dr. Group, do you have any personal recipe for a good probiotic yogurt?

  • ghc_health

    Hey Jon, I recommend Kefir, it’s similar to yogurt but has some added benefits. Check out this recipe, it’s simple to make!

  • Concerned

    Is other fermented good bad for yeast infection, too? Like sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented soy sauce =Namashoyo…?

  • Á Ramos

    Chances are pretty good that if you are eating “dark chocolate” for health reasons, you are not able to sit down and chomp down 1 kg of it in one sitting… It is nothing like what you find in snickers or milky way bars. It is for the most part pure cocoa or pretty close to it and those “fats”found in dark chocolate are essential to the development and maintenance of the human body just as lipids play a roll in proper nutrition as well as natures antibiotics and people turn their noses up at like garlic or onion or chile.

  • Pamela

    Really you guys. I just joined this discussion to find out if anyone had some suggestions on foods that were a good source proibiotics. I can’t believe I am reading an argument about whether saying oriental instead of Asian is racist. This country has bigger issues that having to worry about if everything that comes out of our mouths is polically correct. Personally I did not know that being labeled as oriental was insulting and I could have very easily made the same mistake, not because I am racist, because I am not, but because I don’t see anything wrong with being oriental. Now does anyone have any suggestions on foods that are high in probiotics?

    How about eating sea veg. products first? As I understand it this is a common practice in Japan. As in the “Village of Long Life” which was once online for free but now sits behind a pay wall. These 90-year-olds still physically active also eat a lot of Japanese sweet potatoes rich in the fabled Hylauronic acid now included in many expensive “cosmoceuticals”.

  • Mark Talmont

    I knew a now-retired health food store owner who swore by organic apple cider vinegar. He seemed pretty healthy.

  • The Brigadier

    Yes, eating seafood or taking an iodine source at least a half hour before eating soy, any food made from wheat flour or processed oats, or fluorine will ensure you are getting your daily requirement.

    Latero-Flora is a great probiotic that can help maintain a healthy colon by populating the intestines with beneficial bacteria.

    i agree brigadier, but above you were being very separative politically in what came off as a ‘fed up with liberal’ stance. There is evil in both Democrat and Republican, as well as good people under both. We are all human. However, is it not true that Monsanto is headed by Republican corporate big wigs – – the same whom also control the majority of the FDA?

    (I’m not trying to sound smart allecky, I may have been misinformed)


  • The Brigadier

    I never said Monsanto was run by Republican corporate bigwigs. Monsanto in fact has bribed both aisles of Congress for a long time. Before the vote of the “Food Safety Act” came up in late 2010, Monsanto gave all Senators $350,000 for their campaign chests, and $175,000 for all House members. Only a few Dems gave back the money, and about seventy five percent of the Republicans in both houses gave the money back.
    That Christmas eve, the Republican senators went home thinking the bill was dead, but Harry Reid, who has been bought and paid for by Monsanto, held a session late that night. At 11:59, he opened the Senate, said their was a quorum present and called for a voice vote. At 11:59:50 the vote was unanimous and Reid closed the session
    with seconds to spare.
    The Act which Obama signed two days after Christmas, makes it illegal to sell heirloom (non-GMO) crops at roadside stands without a license. It does a lot more to ban heirloom farming.
    In 2012, the same criminal Harry Reid, snuck a rider into a transportation bill at the last minute. It passed before anyone else knew it was in. This new act is called the “Monsanto Indemnity Act,” giving Monsanto absolute indemnity for any damage to people or the planet when it occurs. Reid should be charged, tried and convicted for blatant pandering that is a serious felony under the US Code. Rather than Republicans, Monsanto has found better allies in the Dem Party.

    sorry but how can you insist that saturated fat is not harmful. I totally agree that we should avoid consuming foods that are high in saturated fats. Eating a diet that is high in saturated fat can raise the level of cholesterol in the blood. Having high cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease. Do you think it normal?

  • Richard

    Just in general, at no one in particular…

    Political correctness was actually introduced to further marginalise people.

    It’s well known that the ‘control structure’ are responsible for inciting hate in progressive forums as a means to change topic and create disparity.
    Please don’t assist them in making it harder for people to educate themselves. Don’t further propagate this notion of division that is so heavily indoctrinated into us.
    Remember, we live in a world of differences, and those differences exist to make us more, not less. Most of today’s problems are because of cultural differences, and our culture is dictated by a deceitful and destructive system of control. Many of the entities such as religious, governmental, business, entertainment,
    lobbyists, educational, scientific, health and so on that are a part of this elaborate extensive system become the source of our identity, and consequently,
    our culturally defined identity maintains division.

    People’s beliefs have always been the strongest bonds of slavery, with economics, poisons, fear, and misinformation as the whip. Words will never explain the wisdom the soul can interpret. So hear not words, listen to your soul. Don’t let a world of convoluted ideals dictate what is right, especially ideals without vision.

    Don’t be distracted by the blame game. The empire has been spreading for much time, and many people have been used in it’s expansion. Ask yourself, what agenda they must have? Knowledge, rare resources, human work force, absolute control.

    Think of it like a dog fight. If you are put in a ring with another dog, you see it as the threat and attack with little consideration for what is happening outside of your circle. The truth is, the threat is the person responsible for creating the parameters of the dogs existence, and thusly, leading it to believe that the problem is the other dog, who is also trapped in the same ring, with the same limited perspective.

    Look outside the circle, less you wish to keep going round and round

  • The Brigadier

    Most people know it as playing the race card, or the gender card. I for one am sick of it as we now see on it daily basis. They try and marginalize to silence people and I for one will not be silenced by all those mental lightweights who try and portray themselves as victims in order to win a argument they can’t win by any other means.

  • Richard

    Definitely agreed. Minority lobbyist groups (all lobbyist groups) often have vested interests. They become responsible for defining what’s an injustice, who’s to cause for it (which leads to resentment), and hollow solutions that promise to solve the ‘problem’.

    The thing is, these victims are not even arguing their own points. They are the ones that have grown most complacent in this system, that they unwittingly become the system.

    Cultural division is outsourced by the ‘slave empire’ to the blind faithful, and they have become the spokespersons.

    Now don’t get me wrong. The blind are only blind because they have been elaborately lied to and guided towards a path of compliance, albeit far from reach of their moral centre, which is necessary for control. Faith and belief are altruistic spiritual characteristics, generally optimistic, but entirely responsible for how we interact physically and consciously. The real war is waged on our beliefs. You don’t even have to like the system, just as long as you focus on the problems as they portray them, your conscious mind becomes limited.

    I used to be none the wiser myself. We’ve all been there. I’ve been thinking of ways to enlighten people and challenge what they’ve been taught as acceptable. It’s hard not to get frustrated when people don’t understand the way of the system, or when they express the systemic divisional belief paradigm. True wisdom comes from self revelation. Therefore, i arrived at the notion that the best way to reawaken our collective consciousness is to propose simple questions that profoundly and fundamentally question our current controlled way of life.
    Arguing with people doesn’t work, because a defensive disposition often becomes one of automated responses. And you can’t give some people the answers. They’re glass is already full in most cases, or they accept it in a literal sense with no thought to associated implications.

    It’s the questions that control what goes into the glass, empties the glass, even determine the size of the glass. If the questions and answers never change, there is no need for a bigger glass, nor change of contents.

    Questions create, and answers replicate.

    People are less likely to look for the answers, if they think they already have them. History is around to remind us of the petty reasons we’ve gone to war. That way, it seems acceptable to believe it’s still petty differences that are the source of our destruction.
    This subsequently leads to resentment towards the people who’s differences have “caused” the violence, despite the true reason for war. This resentment manifests in those that fail to see the deceit.

    Many people that have a divisional mindset also have low self esteem because they apply the same principle to judge themselves. The feelings of inadequacy drive them to build and maintain an ‘acceptable’ image, and their compensating attitude projects into judgement of others. It also makes them more dependent to looking outside themselves for the answer.

    It’s not us that doesn’t measure up to the system, it’s the system that doesn’t measure up to us.

    PS. Ive just ordered Miso Soup from Amazon.
    Never tried it before but it look like an amazing health booster. For free delivery I had to but 2 lots which worked out nearly the same price as paying for their p&p on 1 item (Which incidently is 24 portions) I only hope that I like it 🙂

  • Richard

    Hi Sherry and Annabelle,

    For optimum nutrients and health benefits, you will want to get organic pickles. The fermentation process, and probiotics are said to break down pesticides. Personally, i’m not entirely sure how many different pesticides there are, or how liberally they are used geographically.

    Cucumbers (Pickles) have high levels of pesticides. Below excerpt sourced from net:

    “Out of all cucumbers tested, 45.3 percent of them contained Endosulfan, a chemical the U.S. EPA has been trying to ban since 2010. The Pesticide Action Network explains that endosulfan can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures, and in higher levels — unconsciousness and death.

    Pesticide Count: The USDA found 35 pesticides in cucumbers.

    Health Effect Breakdown:
    9 are known or probable carcinogens
    25 are suspected hormone disruptors
    12 are neurotoxins
    9 are developmental or reproductive toxins

    Environmental toxins:
    16 of these affect honeybees”

    Hope this helps 🙂

    they said DARK CHOCOLATE, dark chocolate, as in cocoa actually does have health benefits, its just the processed sugary milk chocolates that you get from say cadbury are what are bad for you. Oraganic dark chocolate, can be beneficial, I obviously would not recommend eating a full bar of it, but if you ever feel like a treat, go for dark choc because it’s not as bad for you as you think. Infact it’s very quite sour.

    Yogurt that is pasteurized, and in the US virtually ALL yogurt is pasteurized, loses almost all of the benefits that it contained before pasteurization! Plus, at least here in the US yogurt is loaded with white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Neither are good for you, but artificial sweeteners are DEADLY!!!!!

    If you have access to Raw Unpasteurized Milk, try making Kefir!

    The same goes for pasteurized milk and juice and anything else that is pasteurized. It has virtually none of the benefits that it contained before it was pasteurized, it is virtually a nutrient dead food, a food that is void of almost all the nutrients it has in its natural unpasteurized state!!

    In the UK “Oriental” would refer to someone of a Mongoloid race such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai etc etc. These countries are considered “The Far East” or “The Orient”. The term “Oriental” is not considered offensive in the UK.

    Asian in the UK means Pakistani, Indian, Bangladeshi – basically from the Indian subcontinent

    I think its because we have a much larger proportion of people from the Indian Subcontinent than from “Oriental” countries, because Pakistan, India, Bangladesh etc are members of the Commonwealth and were former colonies. So we use “Asian” to refer to these people and “Oriental” refers to the people who would, in the USA be called “Asian” – we have a smaller number of people fron “Oriental” countries than people from “Asian” countries in the UK.

    Confusing, I know! But “Oriental” is not considered offensive in the UK.

    I am a miso addict and eat it in some form a few times a week. A great probiotic and, if you add a few hot chilies to the dish, it’s wonderful. Can be used in dishes other than soup…for example, a miso and chili stir-fry with tons of veggies is guaranteed to put the guts in order!

    I hate to cloud an issue with facts, but I lived and worked in Japan for over 6 years. Did extensive travel duty through most of the Asian countries. Many of the locals I met had no problem with the “O” word and in fact, many would refer to themselves as “Orientals” in conversations in which we would be discussing cultural differences.

    I am not sure how the use of the “Oriental” could be offensive to people in Asia, but I suppose if one looked hard enough, they could probably dig up a few.

    Negro is nothing more than the Latin (Spanish) translation of black. I am a part of a miniscule minority (I may very well be the only one!) who loathes being referred to as ‘black’. As a centuries-old ubiquitous label that I myself used until the past few years, I stop well short of being offended with the term however.

    The label “black” is a major contributor to the negative stigma attached to Americans (and other nationalities) of African descent worldwide. Not only is it descriptively illogical (my skin is not black it is brown, and many other “blacks” are tan, white, etc.) it is representative of all things negative concerning life in general. These things are too numerous to discus in this post and it would take a lifetime to realize and 99% of human beings never will.

    Are there some very dark brown people in Africa? Yes. What are they? Are they Zimbabwean, Kenyan, Monrovian, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Moroccan, Sudanese, etc., etc., etc.?

    Instead of being given an identity such as a Dane, Greek, Italian, German, Spaniard, Scot or any other number of European nationalities, Americans of African descent are simply called “black”. If I must be referred to by the color of my skin, why not call it as it actually is? You don’t call a green light pole orange do you?

    Apparently it is not racist. In North American English it is considered not politically correct. Lets remember that the internet is not limited to your country. However, Asia is a large continent and in British English an Asian refers to people from Central Asia while “Oriental” refers to East Asia. “Negro”, while it translates to the color “black” in Spanish, has a racist association in most languages but it can also be a term of affection, like “honey” or “sweetie”.

    You are partially right, Alicia, but the yogurt made with live culture retains the probiotics for about ten days.

    They do have vitamin D and calcium and since many people have shortages of both, so drinking or eating dairy has benefits. Another drawback to eating or drinking dairy is the extra estrogen dairy farmers give their cows to double their milk production. The amount of estrogen they administer for this doubled production is three times the amount of estrogen the cows have naturally. Human females have seen a tremendous increase in breast and cervical cancers with the attendant spike in cancer deaths because they cannot handle that much extra estrogen in addition to their own.

    Metro men or the city men constantly exposed to oesters from petroleum products have a tremendous elevated levels of estrogen as well. Di-hydrous testosterone is one form of this estrogen that is formed in males and it results in the formation of man breasts, soft muscles and female like rounded curves. There is also a major related current spike in prostate cancers as well.

    Both men and women can block the extra estrogen and the cancers by eating mustard family plant vegetables every day. Since women have their own estrogen naturally for their gender, they need to eat two portions of mustard family vegetables every day. Men only need to eat one, but like women it needs to be around six ounces and you have to eat it daily. Guys, when Di- hydrous testosterone is present you will know it because it causes rapid hair loss. Furthermore regular testosterone gets trapped in muscle and fat in your body. Eating mustard plants releases the stored testosterone, and for a week or so your levels will be at a whopping 247% above normal. Its a marvelous time to begin a power exercise program when you begin your diet change.

    Mustard family plants include, mustard greens, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, Bok Choi cabbage, Napa Valley cabbage, and other cabbages as well. Look up mustard family plants for a slightly expanded list.

    I suggest you read The Great Cholesterol Myth and also Good Calories/Bad Calories. Saturated fat, which is mostly made by your liver is necessary for cell health, including brain health. The anti real fat idea was started by Ansel Keys and his seven country study. However, he had reliable information for 22 countries. He cherrie picked his countries to prove his ideas. If you include all 22 countries, sugar and lack of exercise become the real villains.
    Another man by the name of John Yutkin pointed out the problems with Keys research. Yutkin wrote a book about sugar called Pure, White and deadly. Needless to say, Big Sugar, who invented a lot of the tactics used by big tobacco, put a lot of money into backing Keys.
    Saturated fat is the bandage that it put over the inflammation caused by sugar. It is not the source of the damage. However, there are different sizes of lipoproteins. Saturated fat in the diet increases the size of these. These are the safe, harmless lipoproteins. Sugar in the diet decreases the size of lipoproteins. These are the ones that help clog your arteries. Your trig numbers tell you which you likely have. The higher the trig numbers, the smaller the lipoproteins.
    A interesting note: 1/2 the people which have heart attacks or strokes have normal or low cholesterol levels. The other half have high. Having a problem seeing which is worse. However your chance of dying from infection or cancer is much higher if you have low cholesterol levels.
    Here is hoping that you have high cholesterol, full of big fat lipoproteins and low trig levels. That will give you the chance for the longest life.

    Raising HDL levels is contingent upon consuming the right fats (seeds, nuts, avocados) along with a lot of soluble fiber. Once this is achieved you can handle some saturated fat. Chocolate is made without dairy if you are a vegan…

    “Don’t forget to get your 180 units of iodine every day. It is also a powerful preventative against a whole host of cancers.”

    Eating the diet that God & Mother designed humans and animals to eat is by far the biggest prevention for chronic, deadly diseases such as cancer.

    The S.A.D, Standard American Diet is so nutrient deficient that it allows diseases like cancer to invade our bodies because our immune systems are weakened by this diet and devastated by all chemical based pharmaceuticals that many people take every day.

    80% of our immune system are in our “gut”.

    Chemical based pharmaceuticals destroy most/all of the good gut bacteria that our bodies need to process the foods that we eat and to keep our immune systems healthy, strong and able to do their jobs..

    It is only our bodies immune system that has the ability to prevent and cure illness and diseases like cancer.

    A number of the fermented foods recommended give me the worst case of gas and bloating (Kimchi and sour kraut to be exact). Will this side affect eventually stop once I change my gut chemistry or will I have to live with being flatulent the rest of my life?

    “Science” has become corrupted. Ever hear of climate gate? Ever notice how the FDA changes it’s stance on how a food is good for you for a while, then it’s not so good for you? i.e. eggs, butter. Whoever is paying for the study will get the results they are looking for. Ever wonder why there are “scientific studies” that contradict each other?


    NOTE # All pasteurized foods have been sterilized for longer shelf life because of greedy profit and no longer contain any beneficial bacteria, This stuff should be labeled as a food bi-product being unfit even to use as animal feed. Indeed some countries are beginning to ban these counterfeit substitutes outright. It makes one wonder who is paying off the F.D.A. to allow this dangerous practice..

    You need to read information thoroughly for your own benefit , as this comment has lead to a string of wasted time to read through , it clearly states dark Choc is not a probiotic but an effective carrier for it alongside many other benefits, including 1/3 of the fats only as the more unhealthy source , the other 2/3 of data are the healthier types !

    The article never said chocolate is a probiotic source. It rather states that it carries probiotic safely through the extreme PHs of the digestive track.

    Tempeh is NOT a source if B12 and this is dangerous information to spread especially for vegans or vegetarians who will think that by eating tempeh they are getting B12. Please read Sally Pacholok’s book ‘Could it be B12?’. Tempeh contains the B12 analogue which actually blocks absorption of the B12 that we need. Please correct this error as soon as possible. Misinformation like this leads to sick vegans and vegetarians.

    cholesterol has been paying the blame for the harm that is really made by sugar and carbs….cholesterol actually is found in areas that have been damaged by sugar and trying to “patch” them….but the sugar industry was very clever on diverting the blame to fat…..blaming cholesterol for disese is like the police arresting a citizen passing by the site of a crime just because he has a long face
