Have you heard about the wonders of Kefir?
If you haven’t heard of kefir before, now is the time to learn more about it. So, kefir is a cultured enzyme-rich food jam-packed with friendly micro-organisms that help balance your micro flora (inner ecosystem). It has an extensive amount of probiotics, protein and other essential minerals and valuable B vitamins.
Kefir’s origin has not yet been pin-pointed but has been found to have come from eastern Europe and possibly Mexico. Either way, this cultured food has been used for thousands of years, where it was made using live kefir grains which fed on milk. The naturally occurring bacteria and yeast in kefir combine symbiotically to give superior health benefits when consumed regularly.
For the lactose intolerant and those who don’t partake in milk, kefir’s abundance of beneficial yeast and bacteria provide lactase, an enzyme which consumes most of the lactose left after the culturing process. If you are someone who completely absents from eating dairy, then there are other alternatives. You can culture water based kefir or even use alternative milks, such as coconut milk.
