Do fermented and non-fermented dairy products have an impact on gut health?
I often get Youtube comments labeling fermented dairy products as bad for your health. In my opinion, many people want to believe things that just aren’t true.
I read a study out of France that looked at 539 women and the impact of fermented dairy products on the gut. The researchers split the group into two, with the control group eating a non-fermented dairy product and the other group getting 125 grams of a fermented dairy product containing probiotics. Both groups were given the food twice a day for between two and four weeks.

Compared to the subjects who had non-fermented dairy products, the women who ate the fermented dairy product had a significant improvement in their digestive system in terms of bloating, gas, and other mild symptoms.
Adding a good quality, sour, organic yogurt to your diet can have a significant and positive impact on your gut.
If you find that your gut reacts to eating yogurt or kefir with bloating, gas, and abdominal discomfort, take a break from eating fermented dairy products. Work on improving the health of your gut and then re-challenge yourself with those foods. You don’t have to write them off forever.
