Kefir has extensive benefits:
- It is a rich source of calcium, protein, and B vitamins.
- It contains up to 61 different microorganisms, making it a much more potent source of probiotics than many other fermented dairy products.
- It contains the probiotics and carbohydrates that protect against harmful bacteria.
- It is an excellent source of calcium, and vitamin K2. These nutrients have major benefits for bone health.
- It can treat several forms of diarrhea and can also lead to improvements in various digestive conditions.
- It 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.
How to make kefir
You can easily make homemade kefir. All you need is a jar that closes with a lit and a glass bottle.
On day one you have to buy a small bottle of kefir and a bottle of whole milk (preferably raw). Mix 25% kefir with 75% whole milk in the jar, close the lit and put it in your pantry at room temperature.
The kefir bacterias will now multiply and ferment the milk. After 24 hours you put all the kefir in the glass bottle and store it in the fridge.
You can repeat this process infinitely, by taking a part of the kefir you just made (after shaking it) and add milk again.
