"Nutritional Value of Kefir"

The Best Source of Probiotics in Less than 2 Min a Day.

Whether you are a master Kefir Maker or using Kefir Starter or brand new to the knowledge of kefir grains let me show you several things that will simplify your kefir making process.


Article 3 - Nutritional Value of Kefir


This video may take 15 to 25 seconds to start playing.

If you’re looking for a good probiotic supplement go for the best, Kefir.  Many manufacturers of probiotics claim that their pills contain 15 billion bacteria at the time of processing.  And that it would take tubs of yogurt or gallons of kefir to receive the same amount of friendly bacteria.

First of all, lets not forget that these companies acquire their products directly from these whole food  fermented-milk products.  As I  mentioned before,  they pull nutrients out of whole foods and turn around and sell them right back to you.
So for a fraction of the cost, you can have a more superior product.  I paid only a few dollars for my kefir grains, and if you take care of them properly they will multiply and last forever!
Numbers don’t lie
  • One capsule of man-made probiotics normally contains about 15 billion bacteria.

  • One small bowl of fresh yogurt (500 ml), contains about 1.5 trillion beneficial organisms. – 100 times more than a 15 billion capsule.

  • And one small bowl of fresh kefir (500 ml), contains as many as 5 trillion beneficial organisms.  Almost 400 times more than a capsule.

Kefir and other fermented milk products contain buffering agents that nourish and protect the lactobacillus from bile acids in the stomach.  This way they can make it into the intestines where they produce Vit. B-12 and help to breakdown and package food for excretion.  Milk products are such strong buffering agents that even poison control centers recommend drinking milk when confronted with a poison situation. 
Bacteria in pill form are in a dormant cycle and the bacteria in kefir and yogurt are alive and well, making them much more fit to adapt to sudden changes in environment as they enter the body.
These fermented milk products are considered functional foods because they function as health promoting foods.  Probiotic pill supplements only offer one thing, bacteria.  Fermented Milk offers much more; minerals, vitamins, amino acids, L-carnitine, good fats, antimicrobial agents and  more.

Scientist tested the kefir in the Caucasus Mountains for any type of harmful bacteria.  But much to their surprise, they found nothing.  Deep in the mountains where sanitary conditions are much worse than ours, the scientist refused to believe there was no harmful bacteria to be found.  Creating a possible scenario that a piece of animal fecal matter would fall into the milk, they injected the E. Coli bacteria into the kefir.  Within 24 hours the E. Coli was destroyed by Kefir’s benificial bacteria.  Kefir has also demonstrated the ability to kill H. pylori infections when bacteria alone could not.  In addition, the complex microflora of kefir has also shown a keen ability to stimulate our immune system, ward off infections from salmonella, and in some cases even fight cancer. 

Fermented foods such as kefir, yogurt, and sauerkraut are once again superior to pills in a bottle.
