Take probiotics

Probiotics are a type of good bacteria that help your stomach stay healthy. They occur naturally in our digestive tract and assist in the absorption of nutrients. They also help to strengthen our immune system.

Plain yoghurt is a good source of probiotics. Chat to your doctor about taking a supplement if you are lactose intolerant or do not consume yoghurt.
