KEFIR FOR A HEALTHY BODY

Posted by kefirindia on May 22, 2015  /   Posted in Uncategorized

The latest superfood in the health industry, this yoghurt like milk product is making all the headlines for its numerous health benefits. Kefir is a cultured milk product that is traditionally made using kefir “grains” available in multiple outlets and websites.

HISTORY

Many decades ago, Russian shepherds in the Caucasus mountains accidentally discovered kefir in raw goat’s milk left in leather pouches that fermented. Ever since, Russians have sworn by its health benefits, which were only recently proven, and take full credit for their chance discovery.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Kefir is a fantastic source of probiotics; live organisms such as healthy bacteria that flourish in our digestive tracts and keep things going smoothly, thanks to the multiple varieties of bacteria and yeast used to ferment the milk that eventually becomes kefir. It is loaded with calcium and several Vitamin B’s. Kefir helps with digestion and provides calorie-free proteins, perfect for those trying to lose weight. Kefir contains healthy polysaccharides and significant amounts of phosphorus; all essential nutrients for a healthy body. Kefir boasts of anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, as well as boosting the immune system, improving blood circulation and regulating cholesterol and sugar levels. It has curative benefits, as well as preventive benefits. This is a super food indeed!

TYPES AND USAGE

Kefir is mainly of two types- water kefir and milk kefir. Both are made using kefir grains. A third type – artificial kefir, or commercial, store bought kefir should be avoided on account of it being high on preservatives and not as probiotic as the real deal. Making your own kefir is quite simple; once you’ve bought the kefir grains, all you have to do is ferment them in milk or water. Combine 2 tablespoons of kefir grains with 2 cups of milk and leave for 24 hours. You can add sugar or additional flavours like vanilla, lemon or fruits according to taste.

CONCLUSION

Kefir is a creamy, delicious, healthy food that is easy on the pocket; incorporate it in your everyday diet in the form of smoothies, and enjoy all the awe-inspiring benefits!
