Gut health is a big topic in our house right now, we’ve been detoxing and are now ensuring our intestinal flora has everything it needs to help us feel great and have tonnes of energy. I already make Kombucha which is packed full of probiotics, but lately I’ve heard a lot about the health benefits of drinking young coconut water Kefir.
After doing some research I found a very helpful NZ based group that you can join, Fermenting Freaks Forever where you can get tips, starters, product and lots of support on your fermenting endeavors. I also came across the The Kefir Company who have a delicious range of ready made Kefir and a kit called ‘The Batch’ that I’m very keen to try.
For optimal results, you work up to drinking 80ml for a female and 100ml for a male; this will help support a healthy immune system, which is especially important if you’ve had to take antibiotics. Other reputed benefits are healthy support of the nervous system, intestines and internal organs, aiding the digestion of food, and helping to maintain healthy hair, nails and skin.
I’ve been drinking The Kefir Company’s absolutely delicious, ready made, Kefir for the last couple of weeks and am now totally addicited! I love the slightly fizzy, tangy flavours (I’ve tried the lot) and so far I’m feeling less bloated and have more energy, I highly recommend this daily health tonic. If you’d like to find out more about Kefir there’s a couple of really good documents on their site, for more info follow this link.
Delicious, convenient 300ml sipper bottles come in four flavours: Regular, Lime, Pineapple and Watermelon. For more info as to where they are stocked check out their website.
