How Kefir Benefits Your Diet
Kefir has been around for a long while. It is valued within the healthy-eating community because it is full of high-grade nutrients and probiotics. Its primary benefit is the regulation of gut bacteria and flora, which helps people just like you and me to enjoy better digestion. If you are new to kefir, consider it very similar to yogurt. But, kefir is a fermented liquid that is made using cow's milk and special grains. It is much thinner than yogurt, which makes it a perfect product for smoothies, as kefir is very drinkable.
Kefir is a rich source of vitamin B-1, B-12 and K-2. It is also a great source of calcium, magnesium, and folate. Kefir also has around 200 calories per 200-gram serving. It is free of saturated and trans-fats. There are 10 grams of fat in the same service size, but these are mostly good fats. There are usually over 30 different types of organisms in Kefir. Each help regulate your digestive track.
Kefir's Rich Asian History
Kefir has been a food source for generations. It is an ancient food that comes from Asia. You can find the kefir grains in some Asian food stores or even online. Kefir is also available pre-made. Many regular grocery stores have kefir in several forms. Some of the popular forms are drinkable smoothies in a variety of flavors. It is worth noting that if you expect kefir to taste like yogurt you will likely be surprised. It is a little more acid tasting that is best described as "snappy". For that reason, many commercial brands of kefir are loaded with sugars.
