What Is Kefir and Why Should We Drink It?

The health of our bodies is, quite literally, determined by the health of our gut and the health of our gut is determined by how well balanced our good and bad bacteria is. There’s an entire complex ecosystem of bacteria living in your gut, involving hundreds of species. In fact, we have more bacteria in our bodies than there have ever been people on the planet.

The good bacteria in our gut is there to stimulate the immune system, inhibit pathogens, help us break down foods (starches in particular), and even affect our mental capability.

This precious ecosystem becomes threatened when we don’t look after our bodies the way that we should. When we eat poor food, abuse ourselves with alcohol and drugs, become ill, contract a parasite and take antibiotics, our health-protecting good bacteria become annihilated.

A healthy diet is the foundation of a healthy gut, but taking probiotics and consuming probiotic foods and drinks is a simple and natural way to supercharge your gut health.
