In a YouTube video titled “What’s Inside Kim Kardashian’s Fridge and Pantry”, the 42-year-old gave us all an insight into her diet.
Alicia Harper, NewYork City-based Nutritionist, Probiotics expert, and Editor of ProbioticReviewGirl had the following to say about Kim Kardashian’s gut health.
“Kim starts by sharing that she has sprinkles for her frozen yogurt before then walking over to her personal frozen yogurt machine.
Some Frozen yogurts do have gut-healthy probiotic bacteria in them, but it really does depend on the milk used. A lot of plant-based milk is not cultured with friendly probiotic strains.
After opening her fridge, I did see some plant-based Oat milk. If this is what Kim uses for her homemade frozen yogurt then it’s unlikely her frozen yogurt has probiotics.
It does seem like Kim is aware of this because sitting directly below on the second shelf we get to see a bottle of Bio K Fermented Daily Probiotic milk. This drink has Lactobacillus acidophilus CL1285®, Lactobacillus casei LBC80R®, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus CLR2® probiotic bacteria that have all been clinically studied. A 2018 randomised placebo-controlled study published in the peer-reviewed Beneficial Microbes journal tested these exact probiotic strains for 12 weeks in 133 patients with IBS and benefits with Stool frequency and consistency were found versus a placebo group.
If Kim drinks her Bio K Probiotic milk every day, it’s likely that her bowel movements are solid and that she has a diverse range of Lactobacillus bacteria in her vaginal and gut microbiome.
In her second walk-in refrigerator, we get a clear view of a whole bunch of fresh organic produce. She has carrots, broccoli, green beans, celery, apples, and pears which are all great sources of Prebiotic fibre.
Prebiotic fibres are non-digestible oligosaccharides carbohydrates that once sitting in the colon can feed probiotic bacteria in your microbiome allowing a diverse range of different gram-positive bacteria like Lactobacillus & Bifidobacteria to grow.
If this is still what Kim eats daily it does seem like she has a gut in good health. Occasional cheat days with things like burgers & fries are still okay for the microbiome provided it’s not an everyday occurrence.”
