Let’s give thanks to the trillions of tiny creatures living in our bodies. These good bacteria improve digestion, boost immunity and may even help us get leaner. How to encourage their growth? Eat food packed with probiotics; that’s good bacteria that live in the gut and show up in fermented foods.
