Now that modern medicine has grasped the power of probiotics, they are making it into everything from yogurt to ice cream and even beauty products!
But while the word “probiotic” (for life) has been accepted, the mass-market probiotics themselves are not necessarily being used in ways that promote your best health. Whether they are frozen in ice cream or laden with sugar in yogurt, most probiotics on the market do not deliver the health benefits you’ve been led to believe.
Probiotic-rich fermented foods and drinks are the cornerstone of the Body Ecology system of health and healing. And after years of research, Body Ecology founder, Donna Gates, began to shed light on how to use the right probiotics to heal your digestive tract and boost your immunity.
The answers are not so mysterious when you look to nature. Thousands of years of history show that our ancestors -- all over the world and in every culture -- thrived on real fermented foods and drinks.
From milk kefir to sauerkraut, fermenting was a way to preserve foods before refrigeration.
Consuming these fermented foods and drinks allowed the hardy, live probiotics to move through your digestive system, providing benefits like:
- Giving you an energy boost
- Stronger immunity
- Better digestion
- Beautiful skin and hair
- Elimination of cravings for carbs and sugars
- Creation and assimilation of needed vitamins and minerals
The Best Probiotics – Beyond the Market Hype
Real food is a key tenet in the Body Ecology program and this applies to probiotics as well. Real food is something your body understands and there is no better way to get your healthy dose of probiotics than in fermented foods and drinks.
Examples of probiotic-rich fermented foods and drinks are:
- Cultured vegetables, like sauerkraut and kimchi
- Natto, miso and tempeh
- Probiotic liquids – milk kefir, young coconut kefir and Body Ecology’s exclusive line of delicious probiotic drinks
Probiotic liquids are quickly becoming a popular way to get your dose of good bacteria and yeast because they are delicious, energizing and most of all, convenient. While many Body Ecology followers love making their own fermented foods and drinks, the ease and convenience of getting healthy probiotics just from opening a bottle is an appealing option for today’s busy health enthusiast.
But the big question that everyone asks is, which probiotic liquid is best for me? So we’d like to shed some light on this important question.
