Probiotic Sodas
Probiotic Sodas
Probiotic sodas are made from friendly bacteria cultures added to local, wild crafted flowers and fruits for flavor, color and texture, organic sugar and raw local honey to feed the benevolent microbes.
The friendly bacteria added to the Probiotic soda drinks is a “culture” similar to the cultured bacteria in yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi and other naturally fermented foods. The probiotic sodas has a fine effervescent finish as the bacteria eats the sugar up, ferments and makes a nice naturally bubbly carbonation.
Structured Water
Structured Water
After going through the RO filter the water goes through a 9 stage restructuring, recharging and re-mineralizing stage (with Magnesium bicarbonate added in at a 65 TDS count).
End result: A very clean, bio available slightly alkaline, highly structured, vitalized water with benevolent magnesium bicarbonate in an absorbable form; the equivalent to high quality, pure spring water. (If you are prone to cramping or have heart issues magnesium helps!!
