How can I use probiotics to prevent inflammation?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
As we age, our bodies experience cellular inflammation, sapping us of energy and making us gain weight. Simply adding a probiotic puree to your diet will battle inflammation and leave you recharged and refreshed. Use any pureed fruit or vegetable, like an applesauce or a guacamole, as a base. Then, stir in a tablespoon of probiotics per cup of puree. Available at health food stores, probiotics are healthy bacteria that improve the lining of your gut. They allow you to get more nutrients from your food and reduce inflammation, giving you more energy from what you eat.
