In this video, we’re going to talk about cheese as a probiotic. When you think about natural probiotics, yogurt and kefir probably come to mind—but you may not have considered cheese.

Is cheese a good probiotic? In fact, cheese can be a great probiotic—if you consume the right cheese.

Your body has about 100-trillion microbes. There’s a constant battle between the good and bad bacteria. Antibiotics and poor eating habits can bad microbes the upper hand.

Cheese has live cultures (microorganisms) that can help support your gut’s microbial balance. Unlike yogurt and kefir, cheese contains very little sugar (lactose). Cheese also contains a lot of healthy nutrients such as protein and calcium.

The cheeses that contain the most probiotics are those that are aged cheeses that aren’t heated. Keep an eye out for raw milk cheeses—these are the ones that you want.

Make sure the cheese you buy is organic and from grass-fed cows. I personally prefer European cheeses over American cheeses.

Soft cheese has more friendly bacteria than hard cheese.

Here are some cheeses you should try:
• Cheddar
• Parmesan
• Swiss
• Gruyere
• Gouda (best probiotic cheese)

Keep in mind that you should consume only a moderate amount of cheese. Cheese can contain hormones that may affect your prostate or contribute to fibroids in high amounts. Don’t over-do it, and you should be fine.
