    Best Sources Of Natural Probiotics

    How are probiotics good for us? Let me count the ways!

    Well, they're almost too numerous to count, but we'll get to that in a little bit.

    Many people opt to take a dietary supplement, but the best sources of probiotics are in healthy foods, and they're really not all that difficult to find. We'll take a look at some of the best sources of natural probiotics.

    Good Bacteria vs. Bad Bacteria

    The GI tract and skin are both organs of detoxification. There needs to be a healthy microbiome in the gut to break down food, absorb nutrients, and eliminate toxins.

When things are out of balance, there are too many bad bacteria, and not enough good. A variety o

    What are topical probiotics?
    Probiotics in skincare draw a similar parallel to their usage in dietary supplement form. We ingest probiotics (living beneficial bacteria) orally to support overall body immunity. Our recognition and research into the skin as the immune organ that it is, has allowed us to launch an incredibly powerful skincare system that harnesses the most beneficial components of probiotics for topical application. These probiotic derivatives support and strengthen the skin's immune system for the ultimate defense against environmental aggressors that cause it to age, as well as give the skin the tools it needs to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally. Clinically, topical probiotic usage leads to a dramatic reduction in the visible signs of aging, including lines and wrinkle

    Here is a yummy and natural prebiotic energy boosting drink! I love downing one of these bad boys before AND after my yoga classes. It's made with coconut water, chia seeds, lemon and a hint of agave nectar and is extremely effective in hydrating the body and balancing electrolytes after a good sweat.

    I talk A LOT about probiotics on this blog, but in this post, I wanted to shine some light on prebiotics since they aren't talked about nearly as much as the former.

    You may be thinking, "Well, maybe they aren't as important as probiotics. I have never even heard of them!" And you would be wrong.

    In fact, prebiotics are essential to probiotics carrying out their duties. Simply put, prebiotics are food for probiotics and they help increase the absorption of minerals in our body while bal

    Over the last decade or so, more and more people have been jumping on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon - or pursuing a "greener" and "cleaner" life. We fill our plates with nutritious foods, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and some of us have even adopted a daily meditation ritual to help better our health and well-being. However, despite our best efforts, we could still be exposing ourselves to an insane amount of toxins on a daily basis. In fact, some researchers have even suggested that the average woman uses products that contain 168 chemical ingredients on a daily basis. Yeah, let that bit of information sink in for a minute.

    How is this possible, you ask? Well, what we put on
