Sourdough has been all the rage of late. For good reason, sourdough is a naturally leavened bread that takes time to make and master but tastes divine with its sour contrast and, better yet, it has benefits for optimal gut flora. As Dr. Li, a dear friend, pioneering physician, scientist, TED speaker, and author of the groundbreaking New York Times best seller: Eat to Beat Disease and our Pure Plant collaborator explains, this special bread is made with, “a starter containing Lactobacillus reuteri, an important healthy gut bacteria that research has shown can active immunity, speed healing, and even improve mood. Studies have shown L reuteri prompts the brain to release the social, feel-good hormone oxytocin.” Add our Pure Plant Walnut and Chanterelle Bar, with its many health benefits, and you’ll receive joy from head to toe.

Dr. Li, “Research has shown cacao contains polyphenols that support vascular health. Sourdough bread is made with a starter containing the probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus reuteri.
