Can Behavior Be Changed With Nutrition?
What happens if you feel bad after eating and your behavior was impaired? Would you want to know more of the foods that negatively affect your thoughts?
There is more and more research coming out that is showing a strong correlation between the foods we eat, how we process those foods in our gut, and ultimately how efficiently our brain works. This research is showing that the foods we put into our bodies is black and white: energy supporting or energy-draining, pro-inflammatory, or anti-inflammatory. But how do we use this information?
How To Improve Children's Gut Health?
Do kids need probiotics? Is it important for children to take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic foods for better gut health? Should kids drink kombucha? This is definitely one of the top 5 questions I receive when families come to sample or pick up a bottle of kombucha or kefir from us. And in 90% of the situations, my response is always a "yes".
It's important for me to throw a couple of caveats in there (every family is different in terms of what they choose to eat and how they provide for their children), but from an overall perspective, a strong healthy gut is vitally important to a child during it's growing years, and probiotics can assist in that.
I believe we have a responsibility to provide the world with our gifts to help others find their own health emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
