Well and Good: Microbial Magic

MicrobialMagic_BlogHealthandWellness_235x170What you do now makes difference later. You really start to understand this, as you get older. And the more time I spend on the earth, the more I want to be in the optimum health to enjoy it! So what does optimum health really mean? Probably a little something different for each of us, but, in general, it means attaining our most favorable degree of health possible.

While attaining this level of health can be quite challenging in a world of convenience, high stress and temptation, inner-ēco ™’s dairy-free probiotic kefir products work hard to support this effort. You can find them in our Health & Wellness Department in the refrigerated section.

Kefir (pronounced kēfər) originated centuries ago when shepherds of the Caucasus Mountains of Southern Russia packed their milk in leather pouches, where it naturally fermented into a tangy, nutritious living food. Kefir, Turkish for “good feeling”, was thought to contribute to the long (commonly over one hundred years), healthy, disease-free lives of the people of this region.

But , inner-ēco ™ doesn’t use milk to make their kefir. Instead, they use freshly harvested coconut water from young green coconuts. They add the kefir culture and let the fermentation process work its microbial magic.

The result is a delicious, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, vegan and 100% natural probiotic product. Best of all, it is lab tested to contain an average of over 100 billion live, health-supporting cultures per serving.

That’s as much as five to 10 times the number of live and active flora that are contained in most probiotic “supplements.” Probiotics are the life promoting ‘good bacteria’ living in our intestines or gut that are necessary for good health and a sense of wellbeing. They protect us by disarming harmful bacteria and supporting our immune system. Good and bad bacteria, of which there are over 500 different species, are constantly entering our body through inhaling, eating, drinking and touching.

There is a battle, of sorts, going on between the good and the bad bacteria for survival. Our health, at any given time, is closely tied to which bacteria are winning the battle. inner-ēco™’s Coconut Water Probiotic Kefir helps tip the balance of power in favor of the health-supporting good bacteria.

So keep up the good fight and tip the odds in your favor with inner-ēco™!
