Society is becoming more and more aware of the host nature that humans hold with bacteria.

There are more cells of bacteria than there are human cells in our bodies — does that make us more bacteria or more human?

It’s all part of the system. We need the sun, we need the Earth, and we need each other.

Not all probiotics are created equal

There are an abundance of bacteria species, which seem to have varying and overlapping properties.

We know that S. Boulardii works well for preventing and treating diarrhea. For immunity, studies indicate that strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus lowered incidence of flu symptoms by 70% over a group who wasn’t supplementing. It’s difficult for science to say which strain is the best, but we find significant evidence in how these foods benefit people so immensely.

Probiotic supplements are better, Living Foods are Best.

Living foods include Yogurt, Sauerkraut, Kim Chi, Tempeh, Kefir, Kombucha, etc…they are alive and want to help you stay alive.

For example, Yogurt : Benefits include…

  1. Active beneficial bacteria — stimulates immune system and aids in digestion
  2. High in protein
  3. Low glycemix index (plain yogurt helps you get slim)
  4. Vitamins and minerals

Kefir and Raw Sauerkraut are powerful as well. No need to choose one — eat them all!
