When Dr. Elizabeth Biggs and Victoria McKellar first met in Singapore in 2011, they quickly realised that they were both looking for a better way to improve their families’ health and wellbeing.
“We experienced illnesses such as infant constipation, recurrent impetigo, candida infections, dermatitis and more. Modern medicine has plenty at its disposal to manage these conditions, but it was difficult to identify a root cause in each case,” says Elizabeth.
The duo felt gut health had a big part to play in their children’s immune systems and overall metabolism. “Research shows modern lifestyle choices impact the way the gut microbiota is established and how well it develops. Common disorders like asthma, eczema, hay fever and diabetes can be linked to this microbiota.” says Victoria. They established the Akesi range of probiotics and fermented tonics in order to educate others on how critical gut health is to overall wellbeing.
If your child loves sugary drinks, help them kick the habit with Akesi Bio-Fermented Berry Spritzer – a delicious probiotic spritzer that is suitable for the whole family. Not only is it yummy, it also provides a healthy dose of berry antioxidants, papaya plant enzymes plus billions of beneficial bacteria that can help restore and maintain your family’s gut health.
