    I've been eyeing this stuff for awhile. It's expensive - $7 a bottle but its also concentrated - they recommend a shot or two a day.

    This is what they say about it

    I'm in So Cal for a wedding and am exhausted! So I picked up a bottle of gut shot with beets, ginger and sauerkraut.

    And it actually works. It's rejuvenating - really quite rejuvenating. I don't get this affect from bottled sauerkraut but I also get it from Farmhouse Cultures "live sauerkraut" which is also very expensive.

    I don't get the effect from sauerkraut that I make for some reason. I wish I could duplicate it - and I don't know why I can't. I've used their sauerkraut as a fermenting agent but it just doesn't do.

    The same is true of kefir with one difference. I get a rejuvenating effect from home-made kefir but not from store bought kefir - two very different animals.

    They do, don't they.

    I have a high tolerance for nasty tasting stuff but I think the beet is OK. The thing is that you take small sips - so it's not so bad.

    1. I have been drinking Kevita Sparkling Probiotic drink which has some excellent strains: L Plantarum; Bacillus Coagulans; and L Rhamnosus. I like it b/c it's not too sugary, and the Kevita Tonic has even lower sugar...

    2. GoodBelly Probiotic Juice Drink is Okay.... too sweet for me, and only one strain, I believe (l plantarum)

    3. Trader Joe's Kefir is actually the best kefir that I've found for good strains:

    L CASEI
    http://probiotics.org/l-casei/
    http://nootriment.com/lactobacillus-casei/

    L LACTIS
    http://worldofenzymes.info/probiotics/lactococcus-lactis/

    L ACIDOPHILUS
    http://probiotics.org/l-acidohilus-benefits/

    ** L PLANTARUM - not typically in kefir
    http://probiotics.org/l-plantarum/
    http://worldofenzymes.info/probiotics/lactobacillus-plantarum/
    • reduces intestinal inflammation
    • HISTAMINE DEGRADING; reduces viral effects & allergies
    • reduces gut wall permeability
    • prokinetic agent, promotes weight loss
    • PSYCHOBIOTIC - improves ADD/ADHD; restores cognitive function, enhances memory
    • increase mucus in the intestines
    • oxalate degrading
    • lowers tyramine; no effect on histamine

    ** L RHAMNOSUS
    http://probiotics.org/lactobacillus-gg-benefits/
    • DOWN-REGULATE HISTAMINE RECEPTORS
    • prokinetic agent & reduces diarrhea
    • lowers obesity
    • anti-inflammatory; lowers CRP
    • PSYCHOBIOTIC - GABA; vagal nerve

    ** B LONGUM - not typically in kefir
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bifidobacterium_longum#Immune_system_regulation
    • PSYCHOBIOTIC - reduces stress; vagal nerve
    • immune modulator; anti-oxident effect (from hayfever to minimizing flu/cold symptoms to lowering cancer tumor incidence & volume - notably, colorectal cancer)
    • anti-inflammatory effect on skin AND also reinforces skin barrier function (improves leaky gut??)
    • improves lactose tolerance & improves food allergies
    • scavenges free radicals
    • lowers serum cholesterol; improves cholesterol usage… unclear to me what exactly the mechanisms -> benefit(s) pathways
    • high colonic pH = colon cancer; b longum inhibits colon cancer by producing bile acid and cholesterol metabolites that lower intestinal pH

    LEUCONOSTOC CREMORIS

    STREPTOCOCCUS DIACETYLACTIS
