Probiotics are live microorganisms that maintain a healthy digestive tract and immune system in our gut microbiome or flora. They are also known as friendly bacteria. There is now scientific proof that the function of the gut is connected to the brain, repairing a damaged gut is essential to good health and probiotics are a key to the success.

Our digestive systems are easily compromised and the worst culprits are antibiotics, high levels of continuous stress, poor nutrition and eating habits. Probiotics help to rebuild a balanced gut flora and boost our immunity to unhealthy bacteria.

Some people may find that water kefir helps reduce inflammation and bloating and improves skin conditions.
