Kefir can be commonly found in the Caucasus Mountains. For many centuries, it has helped the people there survive the harsh environments. The people there actually protected the Kefir grains with their lives because it was a sign of wealth.
The harsh and unsanitary environments peaked the curiosity of scientists. Why are Kefir grains so good yet it came from such a bad environment?
Scientist tested the kefir and tried to find any trace of harmful bacteria. Surprisingly, there was none. Not even a single one! Scientists refused to believe and tested it again. They came up with a scenario where animal crap (excuse me for my language) would fall into the milk. So they injected the E. Coli into the kefir.
Within 24 hours the E. Coli was destroyed by Kefir’s friendly bacteria. Kefir has also demonstrated the ability to kill H. Pylori infections. The complex microflora of kefir has also shown a keen ability to stimulate our immune system which has been one of the commonly known benefits. It also wards off infections from salmonella, and in some cases even fights cancer. Kefir’s rich source of probiotics is certainly awesome.
Your Kefir Source would want to point out these facts because people generally skip whole foods like Kefir. Their reasons? It’s dangerous and will also cause you stomach aches and the likes.
Try kefir it out and see if it’s “dangerous“. You’ll see first hand that you won’t get anything bad from it…only a boatload of goodness.
