Yogurt & Flaxseed For A Better Digestion

Your gut is a home of more than 400 kinds of bacteria, a combination of friendly and bad ones. When the bad ones outnumber the good,things slow down digestively and your bowels become sluggish too.

Yogurt are specially designed to provide probiotics, good for your bacteria that will get things moving again. But take note that you can't just eat those buggers and forget about them.

Probiotics need to feed on prebiotics, - those specialized fibers found in foods like flaxseed. When you eat them together, you restore and then maintain the healthy balance in your belly. So, before eating your yogurt, sprinkle a tablespoon of ground flaxseed onto it.
