Frequently asked questions image

Everything you need to know is right here. Of course, if you don’t see the answer to your question, please contact us. We welcome your questions and comments.

What is the shelf-life?

We hand-make each batch fresh each week and our shelf-life is 10 weeks, however we recommend consuming within 4-6 weeks to retain the purest/smoothest consistency of our product due to separation and evaporation. When you order our products  on our website you can expect to receive the freshest batch made in the same week. 

What are human-derived bacteria strains?

In labor and birth we have the opportunity to gain billions of human-derived bacteria strains from our mothers. With the high c-section rate throughout the country , many of us miss the microbiome seeding that comes with the natural birth process. Most of the strains passed are from the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria family, which make up several of the human-derived bacteria strains. Our body’s long for this. 

Human-derived bacteria are probiotics that are innate to the human gastrointestinal tract. That means they are already adapted to thrive in the human gut. Not only do the human strains that naturally live in your gut favorably alter the microflora balance in the large and small intestines, but they also promote good digestion and promote healthy intestinal lining and are superior to probiotics from other sources. Their best-known role is in protecting your body against harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

Are fluctuations in probiotic consistency normal?

Yes! It’s perfectly normal to see changes in consistency of your probiotics! Kashaya is made fresh each week in very small batches with organic coconut milk from Indonesia without any addditives or hormones. The ingredients we use can cause thicker or thinner batches since there are no preservatives to stabilize the liquid.
