Probiotics

This may shock you: drinking bacteria is beneficial to your health. I was surprised to learn this, but first, let me clarify. There are many harmful types of bacteria that are toxic to your body, but the type of bacteria found in probiotics helps your body predigest important nutrients from what you consume at a much more efficient level. 70% of your immune system lives in your gut. Probiotics are important because they help maintain a healthy gut which supports good digestion and a healthy immune system.  I am hooked on this sparkling probiotic tonic from Kevita, specifically the turmeric ginger flavor (which also has a series of other benefits because both turmeric and ginger are phenomenal for you internally and externally), and I drink one daily to keep my gut healthy.

Never Forget

It all felt so close to home, and it was. It’s important to never forget those innocent people lost in the horrific attacks on 9/11, and the heroic stories of so many brave people who put fear aside to help those around them. It’s important to never forget those who helped rebuild a city and bring a community together that so badly needed to feel comfort and love. Today, and always, I honor and stand with you.  Never Forget.
