Is consuming yogurt the best way to get probiotics? No. Unfortunately, there are limited strains of microbes in yogurt, and most of them are killed at the stomach level.

Another big problem is that the microbes don’t survive the pasteurization process most yogurts go through. There is also lactose and casein in yogurt, which many people are allergic to, and high amounts of added sugar. Overall, conventional yogurts aren’t going to give you the probiotics you really need.

Kefir is very different from yogurt. Kefir contains a high number of diverse strains of microorganisms, including friendly yeast. Kefir is also much easier for people with lactose intolerance to consume because the lactose in kefir is almost non-existent. Plain organic grass-fed kefir is a much better option than yogurt to get probiotics.

Sauerkraut also contains a high number of different strains of friendly bacteria. Just make sure the sauerkraut you consume is unpasteurized. In addition to probiotics, sauerkraut contains fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K1, vitamin K2, vitamin U, potassium, and even certain phytonutrients.

Kimchi is full of powerful superfoods, and it contains unique strains of friendly bacteria. It’s also high in vitamin C, vitamin K1, vitamin K2, potassium, and B vitamins.

If you want to try to get probiotics from pickles, make sure they are lacto-fermented pickles. Also, make sure they are unpasteurized and keep them in a refrigerator or root cellar.
