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. These drinks contain 4 strains of live probiotics with 4 billion CFU’s (colony forming units) and contain 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C. Digestively, I have never felt better, and what I love about these tonics is now not only do I take care of my body physically and through eating a healthy diet, but I am also taking care of the machine that keeps everything running smoothly.
