Young Coconut Kefir & Pudding: Benefits

coconut-opened - HBsYoung green coconut kefir and pudding are cultured foods. They are made with the ‘water’ and meat of raw Thai baby coconuts along with some added kefir starter*. Both are known as potent digestive aids. They’re rich in magnesium, calcium, and probiotics (good flora).

Benefits for Women 

Cultured food has a cleansing effect on the endocrine system (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, ovaries). Many women find their periods become cleaner and healthier. If you are experiencing early menopause, you may find your monthly cleansing return again. Breastmilk can become more probiotic-rich with the addition of these foods!

Digestive Issues

When the gut is inflamed or permeable (leaky gut), as is often the case with digestive issues like IBS, gluten intolerance, Crohn’s – cultured food can help due to their anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. These foods can help soothe and repair the digestive lining.

Yeast Infections

Cultured food, such as coconut kefir and pudding are alkaline-forming and anti-fungal in nature, making them ideal for anyone suffering from a yeast infection, such as Candida. By keeping the environment of the gut in the correct pH state, yeast and other pathogens will naturally die-off and the good flora can have an opportunity to colonize and thrive.        

*Body Ecology’s kefir starter contains potent strains of probiotics. Most probiotics on the market today can be destroyed by antibiotics, fluoride, stomach acid, chlorinated water, etc. before they reach the gut, the probitoics in this starter often do not. Remaining intact, they can work to keep us strong and healthy.
