Last week we introduced our Mental Health Awareness Month series with a post about new research showing a connection between probiotic-rich foods, such as kefir, and reduced anxiety. We also talked about the White House’s National Microbiome Initiative (NMI), which will “advance microbiome science in ways that will benefit individuals, communities, and the planet.” Today we’re taking this series […]
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a month where those who often suffer silently are acknowledged. As kefir producers, it makes us proud to know that our product may aid in bolstering mental health. There have been several studies that have linked probiotic-rich foods to a decrease in anxiety.

Vegetables are polarizing for sure, but there’s something about cauliflower (and to an extent, it’s cousin broccoli) that makes people either love it or leave it. Move Away […]

While that’s good news for couch potatoes, it’s bad news for anyone looking to stay active and healthy. And it’s especially bad news if you’re already low in vitamin D, also known as the Sunshine […]
