Fermented foods, like kimchi, miso and kombucha, contain a variety of good bacteria and live cultures that can help restore balance to the gut. Consuming these foods regularly has been shown in studies to be good for your gut health but probiotics, bacteria strains that are proven to survive the journey through the digestive system, are the real stars. Probiotics can protect our gut lining, immune system and improve mood and overall wellbeing. COYO Kefir boasts 11 specific plant powered cultures producing 15 billion live & active probiotics per serve, an easy and tasty way to boost your gut health.
Our lives today are full of immune system attacking activities like plane travel, work-stress and weekend drinks. In order to keep our health at its best we need to take care of our immune systems. 70-80% of the cells that make up your immune system are in your gut, the probiotics in Kefir have been proven to facilitate good gut health which is beneficial for your immune system.
Have you ever had butterflies in your stomach? Or felt so nervous you wanted to be sick? More and more research is being conducted on the ‘gut-brain axis’ and how taking care of our gut health can lead to a better overall mood. As well as increasing gut health generally, the amino acid present in Kefir, Tryptophan, increases Serotonin levels (the happy hormone), helping you feel your best.
Unfortunately the vast majority of people are still consuming foods laden with additives and refined sugars which disturb the balance of bacteria in the gut. Combine this with copious antibiotic use and it’s no wonder people are suffering with digestive upset. By consuming the probiotics in Kefir, you are able to restore the friendly bacteria in your gut, increase protein absorption and lower PH levels. A healthy gut means good digesting!
By creating Australia’s first plant based, certified organic Kefir, we were able to offer a product that is as good for the environment as it is for your microbiome. All of the organic ingredients are from sustainable sources because we believe in creating healthy people and a happy planet.
