KEVITA - A SUPER DRINK!!!

Have you ever heard of KeVita? It’s a probiotic carbonated  drink that’s sold in health food stores, natural food stores and the health food section of many supermarket chains. I consider it to be a Super Food. Why? Because it makes me feel super!!! But most important, it contains live probiotic cultures that are beneficial for your guts and your immune system.



Like kombucha, KeVita is also a fermented drink. Unlike kombucha, "KeVita is made with a proprietary blend of probiotics and certified organic KeVita Probiotic Culture, using a different methodology than kombucha. Traditionally, kombucha is fermented with black tea, while Kevita is fermented with coconut water or reverse osmosis water.” - KEVITA

My favorite flavor is Strawberry Acai Coconut. But honestly - all the flavors that I’ve tried so far are refreshing,  invigorating and delicious. Strawberry Acai Coconut has a delightful strawberry flavor that is slightly sweet and mild. Each 8 oz. serving has only 10 calories, 1g of sugar, 2g of carbs, 45 mg of sodium, 20% Vitamin C and 10% Magnesium.

Here is the list of ingredients  on the Strawberry Acai Coconut label:

Pomegranate: This healthy 'soda' received two thumbs up from my health conscious friend and mother, Dolores and her daughter, who is one of  my piano students. “It’s delicious! I’m going to ask my local Stop N Shop to carry it!” (Thank you Dolores for sharing a good thing!)

Coconut - a hint of coconut and sweetness, slightly tart

Research has proven that 80% of your immune system is in your digestive tract.  A healthy adult carries  about 4.4 lbs. of  bacteria in the gut.

“There are more cells in that microbial mass than there are cells in the human body. It is highly organized micro-world, where certain species of bacteria have to predominate to keep us healthy physically and mentally. Their role in our health is so monumental that we simply can’t afford to ignore them.” - Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of the book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome and creator of THE GAPS DIET.

But in our modern world, many of us are exposed to influences that ultimately damage the gut and cause an imbalance in our gut flora. Stress, is one of those influences that undermines our healthy digestive flora. 

“A combination of poor diet, medications, stress, environmental toxins and chemicals wreak havoc on our digestive tracts.” - KEVITA

Research has also proven that an imbalance of gut flora can lead to a compromised immune system.

And this is why EVERYONE needs probiotics!

So next time you are at the supermarket or health food store, pick up a bottle of KeVita. And if you can’t find it, ask the store manager to order it and keep it stocked.  More and more people are becoming educated and making healthier and smarter choices.

Choose “the healthy alternative to traditional soda.” 

Drink KEVITA!!

And feel SUPER!!!
