Relax, refresh, and recharge with our refreshing Strawberry Mint Smoothie. It has three healthy ingredients that you may already have at home. In a high-powered blender, mix strawberries and fresh mint leaves with our probiotic vanilla kefir. Mint has vitamin A and antioxidants. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is critical for eye health, and antioxidants neutralize free radicals in the body to prevent cell damage caused by oxidative stress. Strawberries have vitamin C, which may strengthen the immune system. Our vanilla kefir has tryptophan, the amino acid that raises serotonin in the brain, which may boost your mood and help set the tone for a relaxing weekend.
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 both your immune and digestive system.
