Scientific studies have shown that a healthy microbiome can strengthen the immune system, aid digestion and improve overall mood; the perfect tools to help combat COVID-19. Giving your gut a boost is as simple as eating a nourishing diet full of wholefoods and consuming probiotics daily.
As the only clinically proven plant based, probiotic yoghurt in Australia, we know a thing or two about these feisty microbes. For those of you who don’t consider yourselves to be probiotic geeks, here is the key information you need to know:
Probiotics are defined as ‘live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host’. Many products contain live cultures but unless they survive the small intestine undigested and go on to be fermented in the large colon, they are not probiotics. Once they take up residence in our gut they begin to improve our health in a number of ways.
Each strain has a different effect. For example, the Bifidobacterium Lactis in COYO yoghurt has been shown to improve bowel function and leaky gut syndrome while the Lactobacillus Acidophilus aids the immune system and gut microbiota. There are 6 different plant powered probiotics in our coconut yoghurts which have been specifically chosen for their health benefits. In each serving you’ll be getting 1,000,000,000 CFU (colony forming units) of Bifidobacterium alone, we actually measure this number at the end of the product’s shelf life not at the start which means you can be sure your gut is getting the good stuff!
We want to encourage everyone, in between episodes, to nourish yourselves with good food, plenty of water and probiotics. Take this time to find out a bit more about your body and what you can do to keep it well.
As well as busting with billions of live and active bacteria, COYO yoghurts are dairy, gluten and refined sugar free with all natural ingredients and are certified organic.
