PLANT-BASED DRINKS RECIPE: PROBIOTIC POWER

by Dara Winters

Did you know that 80% of your immune system resides in your gut? Disruptions and imbalances of good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut's microbiome can directly impact your immune system.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in your guand they are responsible for creating acidic fermentation by-products that lower the pH in your intestine to create an environment that the bad bacteria can’t survive in. The good bacteria also secrete antimicrobial proteins that kill off bad bacteria. Foods such as plant based yoghurts and kefir are examples of fermented foods that are rich in probiotics. Consumption of these foods are associated with lowering blood pressure, lowering cholesterol levels, improving digestion and bloating and having anti-inflammatory effects. So, if you want to power up on probiotics try this creamy probiotic powered smoothie! 

Ingredients:  

  • 1 cup kefir  
  • ½ cup oat milk 
  • 1 cup spinach 
  • ½ banana  
  • ½ avocado  
  • 1 tbs agave or maple syrup (depending on preference of sweetness) 

For an extra boost of the immune system, try adding a sachet of High Dose Tonic to the above recipe. Each sachet of Tonic has 1500mg of vitamin C, 1200IU vitamin D, 25mg zinc and over 1000mg of plant micronutrients. That's a lot of nutrients if you ask us!
