Amasai 101

Just in case you are still on the fence about Beyond Organic's powerful probiotic drink- here is a little review: Amasai 101.  What makes Amasai powerful?  How powerful is it?  How is Amasai made?  Where does it come from?  I love details. I need to know the facts about the healthy products I am consuming.  Here are some of the facts about Amasai.
"Improved absorption of vitamins and minerals.  Reduced cellular-level inflammation.  Improved digestion.  Better recovery after the use of antibiotics.  Reduced rates of diarrhea.  Improved immune response.  Many Strains Of Amasi.  Across Africa, people consume “amasi,” but the exact strain of the ferment varies from community to community. If you have made your own kefir you may realize that the specific kefir grains you are using have adapted over time and may even acquire some bacteria from your own kitchen, creating a unique cultured drink.  This is basically what happens with amasi.  Different micro-environments across Africa and different procedures for making and storing amasi lead to different strains of amass.  There is no one dairy culture called “amasi” for this reason.  However, amasi is recognized as being loaded with beneficial strains of lactobaccillus that have not only helped traditional African people maintain their health, it has also protected their milk from the growth of harmful bacteria.  Many Names For Amasi.  Many cultures in Africa call their fermented milk “amasi,’ though in Afrikaans it is apparently “maas.”  Many Americans are generations past fermenting their milk in a gourd in their home. Some of us have embraced the practice once again and have counter tops full of fermenting foods. For those who are too busy or otherwise not interested in becoming a food fermenter, you still need rich probiotic foods to support your healthy.  Beyond Organic Amasai And Beneficial Fats Omega 3 And CLA.  One key benefit of Beyond Organic Amasai is that the cows themselves are essentially grass-fed. Beyond Organic has trademarked a term “Green-Fed” its focus is on feeding cows a diet that they were naturally designed to consume. The cows are on pasture but will likely also receive a diet of stored alfalfa and other feed as they weather the Missouri winters.  Grass fed dairy products contain higher levels of the beneficial Omega 3 fatty acids and of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).  A cow on a diet with no pasture produces some CLA — about 50 milligrams in a tablespoon of butter, a cup of milk, or a tablespoon of cream. A cow on an exclusive diet of grass will produce about 250 milligrams of CLA in one tablespoon of butter, 200 milligrams in one cup of whole milk, and just under 150 milligrams in one tablespoon of cream.  As a result, Beyond Organic Amasai is a powerful probiotic food, but it will also provide you with important beneficial fats."
Amasai has helped our family in so many ways.  It is something great to grab when you are in a hurry.  We use them for smoothies and other recipes often.  My husband can easily take the bottles to work.  He will be at work for 15 hours some days and knowing that he can still drink a strong cultured dairy beverage is comforting to me and very helpful to his digestive system.  He does a lot of sitting and needs something very strong to keep his system regular.  He has "bowels of steel", so if it helps him- it is a strong culture!  Amasai has been awesome for our family so far!  Try some today.
