How can I improve my family's health with probiotics?
Did you know that there are actually more bacteria in your body than there are cells in your body. That is one reason it is so important to make the most of the food you eat by including probiotics. These good bacteria serve to help us fully break down (digest ) the food we eat. If for some reason you or one of your children must use antibiotics it is vital to your health that you consume an increased amount of probiotics in order to replenish the healthy flora. Remember antibiotic literally means "against life" and probiotic means "for life." What can you do to promote life and wellness in your family today? Serve the amazing SUPERFOODS that I call The Trifecta, of course:
Kefir - raw goat's milk is preferred but cow's milk is also acceptable.
Cultured veggies - use organically grown vegetables only and non-chlorinated water.
Kombucha - for a fun, fizzy soda alternative that is sometimes touted as the "elixir of life" or alternatively, enjoy water kefir made with coconut water.
