Just like other fermented foods, Kefirs contain high amounts of beneficial probiotics, digestive live enzymes, health boosting nutrients and B vitamins which are essential to our overall health.
The kefir grains make up are cultures of various strains of healthy bacteria, yeast, and polysaccharide which look like crystal clusters or grains of jelly which feed on the sugar (metabolise the sugar) to produce right-rotating lactic acid, carbon dioxide and ethanol resulting in a fermented, carbonated and slightly fizzy beverage.
Because of kefir’s ability to establish healthy bowel flora, it is beneficial in preventing many gastrointestinal disorders. Kefir can also prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, acting as a natural antibiotic.
It’s cleansing effect on the whole body helps to establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity as it strengthens the immune system, encourages good digestion and helps to maintain healthy function of the heart. Kefir is an excellent source of nourishment for kids, pregnant and nursing women, the elderly, and those with compromised immunity.
