After taking nsaids 9 years ago i developed a nagging pain in my abdomen, always in the same place. It would come & go, but often occurred daily. Since starting the kefir last year, this pain has subsided to where i go probably weeks without noticing anything. The only downside for me is the taste, so i mix it into a smoothie.
Keep healthy feeding your gut bacteria. Easy to make but make sure you follow the instructions, there are videos on the internet. I recommend using full-fat milk to get the best results from your bio-cultures. We tried semi-skimmed and coconut milk, but the results weren’t not as good. The whole family enjoy a kefir smoothy in the afternoon made with fresh fruit. My wife has noticed a huge different with her digestion problems. We intend to keep on using it and our friends have started using it as well.
I bought the starter kit some months ago and wasn’t very successful – perhaps i was impatient. I bought the live culture and was so successful that i decided to try the starter kit again. This time i waited two days and the kefir started to grow. If you decide on the starter kit, keep it warm in a cupboard, follow the instructions and give it time it will grow. Here are the specifications for the The Kefir Company Milk Kefir Starter Cultures – 3 sachets:
- Make up to 100 litres of Kefir
- Contains 7 strains of probiotics
- Supports and optimises your intestinal flora, digestion and bowel movements
- Supports body functions and resistance to disease
- Easy to Make; no boiling of milk and can be set at room temperature
I gave upalcohol nine months ago and felt my system could do with a boost. I’ve used this kefir ever since. I didn’t find it worked so well with skimmed milk but fine with semi and i see it works with coconut and almond (review here) so i’ll give that a go. Fast delivery and i feel great. Same breakfast every morning – i even take it with me abroad. Works even better in warm weather.
I have only used it with soya milk and thoroughly enjoy it. You can get several batches from one satchel so great value.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Therefore standard supermarket products are a waste of my time
- Good, tasty kefir
- Simple, cheap and delicious.
I’ve been making kefir for three years now. I’ve only ever used these starter grains. No need to shop elsewhere – these are excellent. Other kefir i have tasted is not as good.
Found this to be everything we hoped – easy to make, economical, excellent taste and thickness.
