Anyone that eats yogourt or drinks kombucha probably knows that having the right balance of bacteria in your body contributes to your long-term wellness.
Sounds weird (and slightly gross), but it’s true!
The probiotics found in yogourt are very similar to (or even the same as) the good bacteria colonies that exist naturally in your gut. Among many other wonderful things, having the proper bacteria levels promotes good digestive health and helps control blood sugar levels.
And while you’re probably already aware that one of the best sources of probiotics is yogourt, you should know that not all yogourts are created equal.
A recent Leger poll found that four in 10 Canadians believe that all yogourts contain probiotics. The poll also found that 25% of Canadians believe that all yogourts are made from natural ingredients — however, a quick look at many labels reveals that this isn’t the case.
The same poll found that nine in 10 Canadians feel eating natural food is important, and they really care about what they’re putting in their bodies. For example, 46% purchase yogourt for the benefit to their digestive system, and 84% say they’d rather buy natural foods than processed foods when they have the option.
The new Astro Original Kefir Probiotic Yogourt is the same Balkan-style yogourt you know and love, now with kefir cultures and twice the amount of probiotics as other probiotic yogourts in the market — so you can feel twice as good about eating it.
