Traditionally made of cow’s or goat’s milk, kefir is the fermented drink that’s taking the wellness world by storm. Kefir originated from parts of Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The name is derived from the Turkish word “keyif”, which means “feeling good” after eating.

Here are some research-backed health benefits of kefir:

It’s full of nutrients

Kefir is a fermented milk drink, cultured from kefir grains. It is a rich source of calcium, protein and B vitamins.

It’s more potent than a probiotic

Kefir may contain up to 61 different micro-organisms, making it a much more potent source of probiotics than many other fermented dairy products.

It has potent antibacterial properties

Kefir contains the probiotic Lactobacillus kefir and the carbohydrate kefiran, both of which protect against harmful bacteria.

It may improve bone health

Kefir made from dairy is an excellent source of calcium, and full-fat dairy kefir also contains vitamin K2. These nutrients have significant benefits for bone health.

It may help with various digestive problems

Probiotics like kefir can manage several forms of diarrhoea. They can also lead to improvements in various digestive diseases.

It’s low in lactose

Kefir is low in lactose because its lactic acid bacteria have already pre-digested the lactose. People who have lactose intolerance can often drink kefir without problems.

It may improve allergies and asthma

Preliminary animal studies suggest that drinking kefir may assist in reducing allergic reactions.

Along with this healthy, fermented drink, consider adding a probiotic to your daily routine. Probiotics are the “good” or “helpful” bacteria that assist in keeping the gut healthy and help balance the “good” and “bad” bacteria to keep your body working the way it should.
