It takes two to mango 🥭 This beautifully layered Mango Pistachio Smoothie combines the tropical, floral flavor of mangos with earthy, buttery pistachios. Mangos are always a good smoothie ingredient because they’re naturally thick, so they make a smoothie that’s rich and creamy. They’re also bursting with vitamin C, which is crucial for immunity. Pistachios pair perfectly, because these flavorful little nuts are rich in #fiber and loaded with energizing B vitamins. Our Lifeway Mango Kefir dances with this dynamic duo and elevates it further by loading the #recipe with #calcium, #protein, and #probiotics.
Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Actually Need to Know
With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.
Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunity, improve allergies, and improve digestion.
Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.
