What Are Probiotics?
Did you know that there are 10 times more microbial cells in your body than human cells? The vast majority of them live in your digestive system. Yup, it’s a big hotel and we’re just the gatekeeper…and the chef…and housekeeping. Everything that these microbes produce interacts with your body, influencing immunity, mood, and inflammation, just to name a few. When your hotel gets taken over by the Hell’s Angels, your body has to spend all its energy just cleaning up the mess. Eating sugar and processed food is like calling a convention for all the undesirable characters to set up shop. And once they check in, it’s very hard to get them to leave. Probiotics are the nice hotel guests- they leave you a big tip (in the form of vitamins that your body can’t synthesize) and call the cops on the junkies in the next room. They love your hotel. Eventually the biker gang realizes that this isn’t the hotel for them, and the next thing you know there’s a gospel singers’ convention in your intestines. You are full of energy and feel light and clean! We use one of the best tested and most therapeutic probiotics, Lactobacillus plantarum, in our drinks. Try a Beet Kvass and let this good guy restore your temple!
