What is the connection between probiotic foods and our need for sugar? As it turns out there are highly connected. Probiotics help against the Candida fungus, which can cause many health problems, such as skin rashes, weight gain and vaginal infections. Candida needs sugar to grow and therefore it can cause us a strong need for sugar in order to secure its existence.
Eliminating sugar and adding probiotics can slow down or reverse Candida. Probiotics will increase good bacteria in your bowel while retaining Candida and other bad bacteria (ideally 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria). This means less need for sugar, better skin, happier belly and boosted immune system.
Kefir, apple cider vinegar, Greek yogurt and kombucha are full of probiotics and are easy to find in grocery stores and healthy food stores.
