Do you frequently feel uncomfortable in the passage connecting your stomach and your mouth? Are you always wondering, why you always feel tired despite following a healthy balanced diet?  Well, all of this means that it’s time to clean your gut!  Your gut might have been affected by a lot of preservatives, unwanted fat, and refrigerated food items.

If you want to have a healthy digestive tract, good skin, avoid bloating and bowel disorders, be free from gastrointestinal issues then you should consume the below listed probiotic foods: 


1) Cold Potatoes

Super starchy foods such as cold potatoes lead to a happy tummy. When potatoes are cooked and cooled, they go through a retrogradation process wherein the starch becomes resistant to digestible starch.

This probiotic food helps to keep you full for longer.

3) Greek Yogurt

Basically, the presence of the lactobacillus component in yogurt helps to build the presence of good bacteria in your body. This good bacteria keeps protects your body from infections. 

Tip: Eat the greek yogurt directly or have it with rice or roti.
