Lactobacillus Acidophilus! No, that’s not a sneeze. That’s the name of the probiotics in  LEAN SENSE, one of the best nutritional supplements for the everyday athlete on the market. We’re talking about probiotics and the benefit they serve your digestive system. If you aren’t sure about probiotics, or just want a quick refresher, check out,  Why Probiotics: A Brief For Beginners.  For now, read on to discover why the probiotics in LEAN SENSE are the best possible solution for your digestive health and overall well-being.

What Are Probiotics?

Basically, probiotics are the good bacteria in your gut. Not only do they ensure a healthy body biome, but they are also credited with good health, warding off diseases, healthy weight loss, and an overall longer average life. The problem? Gut bacteria can be quickly thrown into chaos by your lifestyle, food and drink you consume, where you live, and other factors. The best way to maintain a healthy ecosystem is to supplement. When we plan probiotics into our diet, we are ensuring ourselves an overall healthier body because we are optimizing absorption of the minerals, vitamins, and nutrients we need.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus

There are different types of gut bacteria. Some are good for us. Some are bad for us. Some are the most researched, most science-backed bacteria that have been documented to improve your overall health reliably. That last one is lactobacillus acidophilus. It was first isolated in the 1890’s by Ilya Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winner for physiology or medicine, and the father of probiotics. Since then, this particular bacteria has been reliably tested and confirmed asvital to human health. Aside from the obvious benefits to your digestion, this bacteria is also credited with the ability to treat diarrhea, irritable bowels syndrome (IBS), leaky gut syndrome, and lactose intolerance. It also increases the absorption of calcium and the b-vitamins. It’s also used to help counteract allergies, food sensitivities, and bad bacteria to which our body is always fighting.

How to Reap the Benefits of L. Acidophilus

Well, we want you to consider integrating LEAN SENSE into your diet. It isn’t one of those over the top protein powders for bodybuilders. LEAN SENSE is for the everyday athlete. That means people who want to be healthy, who are active, and who look after themselves but aren’t about to show up at a body competition. Our protein shakes are nutritious, all-natural, and packed with exactly what your body needs, while leaving out the extras and fillers your body doesn’t need. Plus it’s easy to add to your daily intake with minimal effort, and both flavors,Gulf Stream Vanilla Bean andCocoa Beach Chocolate, taste delicious.

Other ways to add probiotics to your diet? Yeah, they exist, and we’re sharing a few good ones below. But none of them are combined in the right dose for your body and in the right formula to optimize and maximize your body’s health the way  LEAN SENSE does. Just sayin.

  • Yogurt: just make sure you use a yogurt that’s low in sugar and specifically lists its probiotic ingredients and benefits.
  • Kefir: a DIY version, this is a grain of bacteria and yeast that you add to water to ferment. The bacteria can vary, but in general, kefir will contain acidophilus.
  • Miso: The paste used in Miso soup is made from fermented soybeans. It often contains lactobacillus acidophilus, but it’s not the primary microbe. You’re also getting a fungus called Aspergillus oryzae and other bacteria.
  • Tempeh: also made from fermented soybeans, tempeh has many different microorganisms, and Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of them.
  • Cheese: if you’re lactose intolerant, this is the last thing you’ll want to try, but cheese does produce a number of beneficial bacteria, including L.acidophilus.
  • Sauerkraut: fermented cabbage. Most people either love this or hate it, but sauerkraut does contain beneficial bacteria, including Lactobacillus species.
