    Good Bacteria for stomach to aid digestion

    Shop Now
    I am looking for suggestions to find good bacteria to help digest food and reduce constipation. Considering Greek yogurt but am concerned it's not Primal enough..too many carbs and milk products does increase my BF.

    And, since eating more protein (100g to 130g a day) I struggle with, egads, constipation. thought maybe good bacteria would change this too. Have been using Metamusil every day but it has carbs too. I am eating veggies.

    Greek yogurt should have nearly 0 carbs. In fact, just buy some plain non-greek yogurt, and strain it out. It's cheaper.

    Have you tried Kombucha? Made all the difference in the world for me. I drink about 5 oz every day.

    Chaohinon, thank you. You're suggesting just regular yogurt and to strain it. Does a person pour the yogurt through a cloth to strain the yogurt?

    Just line a colander with a fine cloth or coffee filter, and let sit for a couple hours.

    Keep in mind, this is only if you can find regular full-fat yogurt. There are parts of the country where greek is the only full-fat option (if there is any at all), luckily CO has Mountain High brand.

    Kombucha can be kind of pricey so I make my own. That way you can control the tartness and the types of tea you make it with also. It has been around for a bazzilion years. ;-) I like mine really tart and fizzy.
