Anyone make their own for their children or themselves? Or can steer me to the ones you purchase?

A friend who is a licensed natural foods chef was talking about Bubbie Pickles tonight at our birth class. She said they have more probiotics in them than a whole jar of probiotic supplements. I love pickles so I'm definitely trying them out!

Probiotics are found in naturally fermented foods, like kombucha, water kefir, milk kefir, some sour cream and some yogurt.

Check out http://www.kefirlady.com/   It's where I purchased my kefir start a few years ago, and it's still going strong.  (The BEST $20 purchase I've ever made, considering  one month supply of OTC probiotics for ONE person would cost about double this!)

I need to look into this again. Thanks! Probiotics seem to really help my son especially, but getting too expensive.

We are about to get a Natural Grocers. Hoping they have them there. I love pickles. My son doesn't, who seems to benefit the most from probiotics. He does love his yogurt though.

The first link I gave you was wrong, so here's the one that works:  http://kefirlady.com/

Most kombucha has an alcohol content, so avoid that.

I also always recommend Creating Healthy Children by Karen Ranzi, which teaches you how to feed your children (and yourself, really!) so that probiotics are unnecessary.

Be well.
