The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Can I interest you in a probiotic smoothie?

    Functional Ingredients reports that a California-based juice and smoothie manufacturer, Naked Juice, is selling “the first 100% juice smoothie with probiotics that aid in digestive and immune health.”

    Naked Juice Probiotic is being offered as a mango, orange, and pineapple blend and includes the probiotic strain, Bifidobacterium. It also contains the prebiotic fructo-oligosaccharides. Other flavors are being considered.

    It reflects a worldwide trend to incorporate probiotics into familiar foods such as probiotic chocolate.
