We continue to talk about effective ways to strengthen the immune system by making small adjustments to your diet. Next in line are foods rich in probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria that are not pathogenic or toxic to the human body, they are especially important for strengthening immunity and relieving inflammation. Below you will find a list of five probiotic-rich foods.


One of the best sources of probiotics to help boost your immune system during this challenging period. Choose natural, sugar-free yogurt, add fresh fruits and berries (another immune booster), granola, or use as a salad dressing.


We all love cheese, but not all of them are high in probiotics. The most effective in this sense are gouda, cheddar and mozzarella. Cheese is a universal product: it is suitable for salads, sandwiches and hot dishes. Cottage cheese is also on the list of healthy foods - eat it for breakfast with fruit and a spoonful of honey.


No wonder the Japanese can boast of excellent health: miso pasta is rich in living bacteria, and with it the whole variety of dishes based on it. Add a serving of miso soup for lunch a couple of times a week instead of your usual European one. This is a very good alternative as miso is rich in minerals and trace elements like manganese and copper.


The classic and simplest element of Russian cuisine can be incredibly healthy. It is one of the oldest ways to get probiotics in history. In addition to living bacteria, sauerkraut contains vitamins C, B and K and is rich in sodium, iron and manganese. Remember that the product must not be pasteurized.


The period of self-isolation is the time to get grandma's pickles and rolls. Pickled cucumbers and tomatoes are a great source of probiotic bacteria. They are low in calories, are an excellent source of vitamin K and are excellent for strengthening the immune system. The main thing is not to overdo it - for all their benefits, they are quite salty.
