Suggestions For Probiotic Foods (Or Supplements)

08 July 2014 - 08:36 AM

Good day, folks:

 

I'm seeking suggestions for Probiotic foods or supplements. What else is available beyond kimchi, kefir and kombucha?

 

Vinegar-like or pickled foods don't appeal to me at all, yet I would like to add more of these foods to my eating routine.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Green Papaya Powder

30 November 2013 - 08:30 PM

good evening or day,

 

recently thought about using green papaya powder to exfoliate my skin.

 

am curious if anyone has tried it here. if there is a thread that discusses this please direct me to it.

 

thanks.

 

 

Found this online...

 

Unripe or green papaya contains natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and papain.

Papain is an enzyme that helps exfoliate the superficial layer of dead skin cells to give way to new cells.

Gentle even on the most delicate and sensitive skin, simple DIY papaya facial masks provide a chemical-free enzyme treatment to restore radiance and lock in moisture on dull-looking skin.


When papaya is used on the skin it makes the skin glow.  The enzyme papain is known to break down protein and when used on the skin it dissolves dead skin.  Using a facemask of papaya on skin helps to heal acne.  It works for smoothing the skin and creating a healthier looking skin.

re-posting now that i figured out where this post would be most effective. lol.

 

 

this is what i did to reduce my previously angry acne...

 

 

researched whole food ways to nourish myself

 

was a plant-based eater for 4 years - during that time i completed a few raw food cleanses with herbs that were meant to cleanse and support various organs

 

re-introduced animal based foods that are wild | organic | pasture-raised (salmon, eggs, sardines, tuna, ghee)

 

began to enjoy nude sunbathing to assist my low d levels

 

made self-pleasure more of a focus

 

stopped using soap on my face and switched to chickpea flour mixed with clay

 

use low comedogenic rated oils on my hair and skin

 

saw myself as lovely regardless of what my skin was doing because i am

 

began to engage in weekly movement of some kind (belly dance, african dance, or weight lifting)
