Kefir is becoming more and more popular every day. It’s a very powerful probiotic beverage. Team Teaologists wanted to know more about it so that we can give you some up to date information about its health benefits.
Kefir is a fermented milk beverage made with kefir "grains" which are basically a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter. It is traditionally made from dairy milk but can also be made from different nut milks and coconut milk.
Texture: Similar to yoghurt
It is very easy to make. Anyone can make it at home.
Kefir contains very useful bacteria and yeast which break down the lactose in milk into lactic acid and propionic acid. During fermentation, about 30 different microorganisms develop in Kefir which are highly beneficial for the colon and gastrointestinal tract. Kefir also helps to boost immunity.
Coconut kefir is a beverage which is quickly becoming mainstream due to some amazing health benefits. It is basically fermented coconut water. The biggest benefit of coconut kefir is that it eliminates the often-problematic dairy and certain teas from the digestive system while still allowing people to enjoy the incredible health benefits.
On its own, coconut is a whole food with many health benefits. It has antiviral properties, improves immunity, and also improves liver functions. It takes the same amount of time to make coconut kefir as it takes to make milk kefir.
When kefir is made from coconut milk or water, its benefits multiply. Coconut kefir is more beneficial and less fattening than dairy kefir or any kind of yoghurt. It also tastes way better than dairy kefir.
When you combine Kefir and Matcha, directly or as part of a healthy smoothie, you get a very powerful weight-loss drink. Matcha green tea helps to speed up up your metabolism, encouraging the body to burn more calories. Crucially Matcha helps to prevent your body from storing calories as fat, and can help to suppress cravings for food.
