The benefit of Akesi in your day


Most commonly we think that beneficial bacteria are ingested, but they can also be absorbed through the skin, or through human to human contact. We have to some degree in the western world forgotten the art of fermenting our foods, which is why we have created the Bio-Fermented Akesi range. 

When starting with probiotics, we advise to start at the suggested serve size and adjust up or down according to how your gut responds. Everybody has a unique gut microbiota and needs to be guided by their own gastrointestinal patterns e.g. number of bowel motions, consistency, gas or bloating.

Do seek out professional help if you suffer from recurrent yeast infections. There is some evidence that shows diet modification (reducing your sugar intake and taking probiotics) can be part of a comprehensive treatment plan for recurrent candida. Saccharomyces boulardii (one of the strains in our Tonics and Spritzer) itself another yeast has been shown to have anti-candida effects.

Probiotics may also relieve eczema/atopic dermatitis (Elazab, 2013). Lactobacillus salivarius can reverse atopic dermatitis symptoms in some children (Niccoli, 2014).
