Did you know if you take a probiotic supplement it decreases your baby’s susceptibility to developing eczema? It’s true…studies have shown that by taking acidophilus the last month of pregnancy and while breastfeeding (especially if you or the father have allergies) the chances your baby will have eczema, asthma or allergies drops significantly. Look for a high quality source containing live cultures- the best ones are in the refrigerated case at your natural food store. You can also get probiotics by eating fermented foods such as miso, tempeh, kim chee, saurkraut, and yogurt.
PS: The word probiotic simply means for life or in favor of life…thus the title of this post!
