Dr. Gary Huffnagle from the University of Michigan Health System is on the cutting-edge of nutritional science by exploring the microbial benefits of eating more foods that contain probiotics.

Pro-what, you may be asking? Probiotics are the “good” bacteria you consume in foods like cheese and yogurt which can provide tremendous metabolic benefits when you are living a healthy lifestyle like low-carb. They can strengthen the body’s defense mechanism to fight destructive bacteria inside the intestinal tract.

Dr. Huffnagle said his research on probiotics has found a startling discovery about antibiotics that should make people who are overweight or obese leery about taking another one.
