(NaturalHealth365) The foods that you eat not only impact your waistline and your physical health, but they also affect the way you think and feel. You’ve probably always heard that you are what you eat – and it’s true, what you put in your body matters.
But, according to a review published in the March 2021 issue of Frontiers of Nutrition, it’s what you feed your brain that really counts.
(NaturalHealth365) Thanks to the tireless effort put forth by the mainstream media to brainwash the masses, millions now believe that the only way to protect against the invisible virus is by masking up, getting jabbed, and avoiding our fellow human beings. It doesn’t seem to matter that none of these measures are grounded in sound science, that the virus has never been isolated, or that (conventionally speaking) the disease in question has a 99.9x percent survival rate for the vast majority of the global population.
(NaturalHealth365) Most of us are aware that antibiotics are powerful drugs that fight bacteria-related infections with harmful side effects. Unfortunately, in today’s society of pill taking, we use too many antibiotics with the increasing danger of antibiotic resistance. The problem is further compounded with antibiotics found in factory foods like dairy and meat products.

Originating in the Caucasus Mountains and derived from the Turkish word keyif, meaning “feeling good,” kefir is a nutrient-dense, milk-based drink packed with protein, B vitamins, potassium, and calcium. But it’s kefir’s high level of probiotics, a group of living cultures that help balance intestinal flora and improve gut health (microbiome), that have health-conscious consumers reaching for the sour, creamy concoction. Kefir is a wonder drink that has been popular in certain parts of the world for centuries, but if you’re just learning about it now, you’re not alone. .. kefir (pronounced keh-feer) has long lived in the shadow of kombucha, its trendy, probiotic “cousin.”
