Probiotics are live microorganisms that have health benefits when consumed (Source) Probiotics as beneficial bacteria provide all sorts of powerful benefits for your body and brain. They may improve digestive health, reduce depression and promote heart health (Source)( Source2) (source 3)
Some evidence suggests they may even give you better-looking skin, reduce acne and promote wound healing. (Source)
Yogurt is one of the best source of probiotics as they are best absorbed with a fat present. Our microbiome is responsible for many important functions in our body, without a healthy balance of these gastrointestinal bacteria in our microbiome, many diseases and deficiencies arise. As we damage this fragile environment through the consumption of heavily processed foods, alcohol, and more specifically antibiotics, we must find a source of probiotics to counteract the damage we have done.
For this reason, make sure to choose yogurt with active or live cultures. At Koko Kai Yogurt, it was always important to us to not use any added sugar or sweeteners, as the positive effects of the probiotics in our guts will be overridden by high amounts of sugars usually present in commercial yogurts.
Probiotic yogurt vs probiotic capsules?
The greatest source of probiotics is from fermented and cultured foods such as our Koko Kai coconut yogurt. It is in the fermentation process that the probiotic bacteria become active and slightly acidic, and are then given a media that our body can digest and more effectively pass the bacteria onto our gastrointestinal tract. With any probiotic, our natural stomach acids destroy a large percentage of the bacteria before they are able to reach the gastrointestinal tract. By fermenting the cultures in a slightly acidic environment such as yogurt, they are then better able to withstand the intensity of our stomach acid, allowing for a higher percentage of the probiotic bacteria to then pass onto our intestines. Unfortunately, the capsule probiotics are dormant and not alive, therefore they are unable to withstand the intensity of these digestive acids and more-if not all-die off before entering the gastrointestinal tract.
