new product review: Inner-Eco helps your digestive ecosystem
Inner-Eco is a cool new probiotic supplement made from coconut water. It’s delicious, it’s vegan, and it’s got millions of probiotics to help your digestive flora. All that and they have cool philanthropic ventures here in the US and abroad.
Here’s some Digestion 101: within each of us is tiny ecosystem of bacteria. Our digestive ecosystem has a delicate balance of good and bad bacteria- usually the good is strong enough to keep us healthy and keep our digestion in the best shape. But sometimes this balance gets a bit wacky- from medication, stress, or poor dietary habits- and we might need supplementation to get us back on track. Inner-Eco is one of the ways to help restore or maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in your system.
Inner-Eco is made from delicious and nutrient-dense young coconuts, which contribute the natural sugars to jumpstart the fermentation. It’s got a nice fizz (so don’t shake it!) and a tangy, tart bite. There are three flavors (original, berry, and my favorite, tropical). The original has a slightly tart, creamy flavor, while the flavored versions use stevia and natural flavors to achieve their fruity taste. These can be sipped directly or made into a fizzy soda or mixed into smoothies. Either way, it can be a delicious part of your probiotic supplementation. For more information about Inner-Eco, the making of kefir, or the importance of probiotics, please check out their site.
If you are interested in kefir but can’t find Inner-Eco in your area, you can also make your own homemade water kefir!
