Kefir is a unique cultured dairy product that is one of the most probiotic-rich foods on the planet. It has incredible medicinal benefits for the digestive system, such as:
- Boosting immunity
- Healing inflammatory bowel disease
- Building bone density
- Fighting allergies
- Improving lactose digestion
- Killing candida (harmful yeast)
- Supporting detoxification
The best kefir is home made, since you know the quality of the milk, the container and anything you add to each batch. If making at home isn't an option, plain greek kefir is a good alternative.
If you are lactose intolerant, you may make water kefir to gain many of the same benefits.
