Many people take a probiotic supplement daily for this particular reason but I prefer to drink the water kefir. I believe it's more bioavailale to the body, i.e. more effective. It’s much tastier and more affordable in the long run.
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, a leading expert in the raw food community, writes in his book “Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine“:
“Kefir grains produce right-rotating L(+) lactic acid, which is an important constituent of the human body. It is particularly important in the prevention of cancer and has been used experimentally with success in the treatment of cancer. In addition, right-rotating lactic acid may help maintaining healthy functioning of the heart. According to some researchers, the cells of the heart muscle obtain their energy primarily from right-rotating lactic acid.”
Another health advantage of water kefir is that people who do not wish to consume dairy or have a vegan type diet may find that water kefir provides the living probiotics without the need for dairy or tea cultured products, like kombucha.Vegans also may like to know that through the fermentation process kefir becomes an excellent source of vitamin B12, and is high in vitamins B1 and B6.
Diabetics, in particular, could greatly benefit from drinking kefir. Since the finished product, if bottled, will produce a carbonated beverage, it provides an alternative to sweet soda drinks. The sugar content is greatly reduced during the fermentation process.
You cannot make water kefir from scratch. You must obtain a culture (aka 'grains') from a reliable source. If you are interested in starting your water kefir adventure, I always have extra available. I have successfully shipped my grains all over the U.S. and abroad. Just e-mail me directly. They are very affordable and easy to make. And it will give you a lifetime supply of water kefir to enjoy!
