This is certainly great news for drinkers of Mayesa, the one-of-a-kind Healthy Dark Chocolate Drink. Read on to learn more about probiotics, what they do, why we need them and how Mayesa is not only a delicious beverage, but a part of a healthy lifestyle.

What are Probiotics?
Although many might think that bacteria is bad – think about all the anti-bacterial products that are on the market—some forms of bacteria are actually good for the human body. In fact, some bacteria are absolutely necessary for good health, including probiotics.

The human digestive system is full of “good” bacteria that keep the intestines healthy, assist in the digestion of food and aid in maintaining a strong immune system. “Bad” bacteria also exist, even in a healthy digestive system. However, there needs to be a balance between the good and bad bacteria to ensure good health.

When the digestive system is healthy and functioning properly, it filters out and eliminates substances that can damage it, such as toxins, chemicals and harmful bacteria. It also takes in the substances that the body needs, such as nutrients and water, absorbs them and helps deliver them to the cells where they are needed.

Issues with the digestive system occur when there is an imbalance between good bacteria, like probiotics, and bad bacteria. The causes for this imbalance can be anything from poor food choices, stress, lack of sleep, the use or overuse of antibiotics and other environmental factors. Symptoms of this type of imbalance can include constipation, diarrhea, urinary tract infections, muscle pain and fatigue.

Studies have shown that eating or drinking foods and beverages that contain probiotics can bring a healthy balance back to the digestive system and get rid of the symptoms caused by an overabundance of bad bacteria.

Building a Stronger Immune System
Probiotics are also thought to help the body maintain a strong and healthy immune system. The immune system protects the body from germs, and when not functioning properly, colds, allergies, autoimmune disorders and infections can occur. Studies have shown that when probiotics are abundant in the body, it’s more difficult for the bad bacteria that cause these problems to take hold.

In addition, in today’s germ conscious society, it might be wise to introduce good bacteria back into the system. Some scientists believe that allergies and autoimmune diseases may have increased in recent years because the immune system is not being properly challenged by bacteria. Friendly bacteria, such as probiotics, may challenge the immune system in a positive and healthy way.

Dark Chocolate: A Delicious Probiotic
According to scientific experts, there are foods that are naturally probiotic, such as some yogurts, unpeeled fruits and vegetables and cacao. For Dark Chocolate Lovers, the news that probiotics are found in cacao couldn’t be better! The probotic benefits, along with the natural energy boost and delicious taste, are just a few of the reasons to Indulge Your Health® with Mayesa .
