Kefir literally translates to "good life" in Turkish - the land of Kefir's Origin
What is Kefir? Kefir originated from the Northern Caucasus Mountain region of the former USSR dating back to at least 1884. 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 the Northern Caucasus Mountain, who were known to live long and healthy lives, with many centenarians among them. Kefir is still considered a staple food in Russia today.
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.
Why Coconut Milk Kefir? Coconut milk is a great alternative for those following a vegan lifestyle and those with dairy intolerance. Coconut milk offers a delicious alternative to dairy with valuable minerals and B vitamins.
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.
