Skin Enhancing Green Smoothie

Made with a curated list of ingredients to target skin health, our Skin Enhancing Green Smoothie will leave you feeling beautiful inside and out. We begin with Lifeway Kefir, which is loaded with probiotics to help support gut health because an off-kilter gut can lead to skin inflammation resulting in everything from dry skin to acne and more. We then add mangoes and carrots for vitamin A (beta-carotene) and fiber, and pineapples for vitamin C and the digestive enzyme bromelain to further reduce skin swelling. We finish with spinach and kale, which are rich in plant nutrition with calcium, folate, fiber, and vitamin A.  All these contain nutrients that may help to rejuvenate skin, making it look younger and more vibrant.

Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You 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 immunityimprove 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 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.

Prebiotics + Probiotics = a Healthy You

Prebiotics are non-living, non-digestible carbohydrates naturally found in a variety of foods. Your body actually can’t digest prebiotics, so they’re what probiotics feed off of to remain actively working in your digestive system. They help the digestive system by promoting the growth of good bacteria. Prebiotics and probiotics work together in balance to make sure our digestive system stays on track and regular. Research has found that consuming a variety of prebiotic and probiotic food sources may improve your body’s natural functions, including your immune system and digestive system.
