GT'S LIVING FOODS, HARMLESS HARVESTGut health...has been trending for the past few years-with the benefits of good intestinal bacteria-credited with immunity strength, vital digestive functions, clearer skin and maybe even a cancer slayer.
All anti-aging attributes-making one feel younger as in 'you are what you eat.'
Probiotics live/active micro-organisms- and the prebiotics that feed the probiotics, are bio-available in real deal eats/drinks-like kombucha tea, kefir (we written about Lifeway's selections), sauerkraut, miso and the popular Korean seasoning kimchi.
New to us:
Slightly fizzy Kombucha fermented tea, is naturally very low in calories... AND imo - kinda -an acquired taste. GT's LIVING FOODS' flavorful selections take the pungent acidic edge off-in their mix up of black/green teas PLUS cold brewed coffee in the KOFFEE flavor -a great way to get some buzz too (plus loaded with amino acids, active enzymes+polyphenols)-with well rounded sweetness via kiwi juice, almond+vanilla. Very inventive.
|Tips: keep refrigerated-good for 3 days after opening-and fyi-Kombucha naturally has a tad bit of alcohol.|
|Handcrafted in small batches, GT's 100% vegan USDA Organic- NEW Veggie Kefir has billions of probiotics in an easy to drink Cucumber Dill flavor. FYI the dill and garlic really come through taste-wise. We could see how someone - might spike this up with vodka for that Sunday brunch tradition of Bloody Mary's re-invented. ALSO comes in COCO flavor.|
No matter-after a workout-a few swigs of the 'original' flavor really hit the spot as a combo mineral loaded thirst quencher (that would be appropriate given coconut's rep for naturally loaded electrolytes+potassium) and tad filling-just enough revive us for the minutes of required stretch/roll muscle help.
|Harmless Coconut Probiotics Non Dairy Yogurt Drink-is USDA Organic---does have saturated fat, some dietary fiber (4g)...and sugars-in the mix is organic cane sugar (19g per one bottle serving-similar to some dairy equivalents...though unless drinking this after a multi-hour endurance workout -like us-can drink half a serving/day to maintain the daily allowance recommended of sugar.). |
Widely available-online and in brick mortar stores like Whole Foods + Walgreens. Factoid-founded in Brooklyn...now in San Fran.
