Coconut milk what? Most North-Americans pronounce this whole food probiotic as 'kee-fur', 'keff-er' or 'kuh-feer', the latter of which is the Russian pronunciation. Since it originated in the Northern Caucasus Mountain region of Russia dating back to at least 1884, we think they're probably right! But, however you choose to pronounce it, you will discover a creamy fermented beverage that is high in active bacteria and beneficial yeast.
The word 'kefir' comes from the Turkish language and roughly translated means 'long life' or 'good life'! Kefir likely got it's name from the longevity of the of the people of this region, who were known to live long and healthy lives, with many centenarians among them. Kefir is still considered a staple food in Russia today.
The Nova Scotia's Original - Coconut Milk Kefir brand is over a decade old and comes with generations of learning and development. It's creamy texture and tangy taste make it a welcome addition to your daily healthy living regime.
How does Kefir help? Kefir provides live micro-organisms that contribute to healthy gut flora. These good bacteria help balance potentially harmful bacteria in the intestinal system. Many studies have been done on the health benefits of probiotics. Kefir is higher in probiotics than yogurt and is a fraction of the cost of most probiotic supplements. Being a food-based probiotic, it is more bio-available than most capsule formulated probiotics and easy to incorporate into your diet. Coconut milk kefir hydrates and gently cleanses the intestinal tract and liver, promoting great health and cleanliness in the body. It can be a valuable resource in unlocking the secret to abundant health and longevity.
Why Coconut Milk? Kefir is traditionally made with cow's milk but since many people are sensitive to dairy, we have chosen to make our Kefir by fermenting high quality coconut milk. Coconut milk is a great alternative for those following a plant-based lifestyle and those with dairy intolerance.
How does it taste? Our Coconut Milk Kefir has a pleasant creamy texture with a slight sour or tangy (fermented) taste. Many people love it the first time they try it...for others it takes a bit of getting used to. But when people notice how much better they feel after taking it, the vast majority learn to love it.
