Probiotics: Why they're important now more than ever!

Did you know that probiotics are known to ward off harmful toxins? It’s true! Studies have shown that probiotics help fortify your body's defenses and boost your immune system. We can all use the extra boost right now!  Below are ways that you can help boost your immune system!

Choose healthier food options: Avoid trans fats, refined carbs, sugars, and processed foods. These foods can cause chronic inflammation — a normal bodily process gone awry that can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer [1].

Drink more green tea! Green tea has polyphenols called catechins that help your body fight off the flu virus because of its natural antiviral properties [2]. 

More citrus, please! Citrus is a natural food source for Vitamin C which is well known to be a big helper in fighting off illness. 

Eat more Yogurt. Yogurt is an excellent source of probiotic bacteria. Aim to try yogurts that have the word “probiotic” specifically on the label somewhere, as that will usually indicate an extra source of the good bacteria has been added to the yogurt. 

Immunity Coffee. Get the probiotics your body craves with just one cup of this better-for-you Immunity Coffee. This blend is loaded with probiotics, prebiotics, and essential vitamins. Get a blast of good bacteria with 1 Billion helpful microorganisms in every cup! 

Pickle me this. Pickles are a great low-calorie snack food and they can be an excellent source of Probiotics! Like most pickled or fermented foods, pickles are beneficial for the health of your gut. As most pickles are pickled in vinegar, be sure to choose pickles that are made using a saltwater brine in order to get your probiotics! Pickles also contain fiber and vitamin K [3].

These are simple choices to get more probiotics into your diet. The bottom line, we here at VitaCup want to do our part to help keep you healthy and happy! And what better way than knowing it is right in your warm cup of coffee with our Immunity Coffee or Green tea [4]!
