Gut health is a massive topic these days and it is more and more recognised that a well-functioning digestive system results in optimal health. The key to this is providing your gut with the things that create optimal conditions for them to work well.
One of the best-known ways to improve digestive health is to consume probiotics, which are thought to help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut (including your stomach and intestines). When it comes to probiotics, yogurt is the most commonly associated food, but kefir is actually a much more powerful source and our Kefir contains billions of live bacteria from 14 different culture strains.
Matcha tea is fantastic for the digestive system, as it acts as a prebiotic, which are what probiotics feed on, thus helping to increase the number of healthy bacteria in your system. Matcha also helps your body to purge toxins due to the fact that it is very high in antioxidants. It also promotes intestinal regularity, so if you are looking to give your digestive system a boost, then this powerful smoothie will tick all the boxes.
We are currently partnering up with our favourite organic matcha tea brand Kineta. You can use your Yeokens to receive a 25% discount code for their website, and they’ve also given us this perfect recipe for a gloriously gut-boosting smoothie combining Kefir with Kineta’s Everyday Organic Matcha in order to enhance the benefits of the kefir.
