Raw Milk Kefir colonizes our intestinal tract with friendly beneficial bacteria! And why would we ever want this? Because our gut is our second brain, it houses our immune and digestive systems, which either nourishes us or not, protects us or not, and directs communication throughout our entire bodies, or not. Also, 90% of our human cells and genetic material is comprised of our gut flora. It’s a vast highway directing food traffic, nutrition deposits and a digestive system large enough to cover an entire tennis court. Our gut triggers thoughts, moods and behaviors and a healthy gut is alive with healthy bacteria that magnificently expels viruses and resets our bodies when our bodies are in a state of dis-ease.
Raw Kefir is a nutrient probiotic staple which you can make by yourself (infinitely) to feed your gut! You only need pastured Raw Milk + Raw Kefir, to make continues batches of this super food packed with 21+ healthy bacteria and at least 10 healthy yeast strains. It’s called the Champagne of Milk in France because of it’s effervescent taste and bubbly texture and is often served on New Year’s Eve to ring in the coming year. Many cultures across the globe consume raw kefir daily and it is especially included on New Year’s Eve since this probiotic of 30 microbes is synonymous with vigor and health. In Turkey raw kefir is included because it literally means “feel good”; in Tibet since it’s known as the “drink of the one hundred year olds”; in the Middle East it’s paired (esp with elaborate meals) as a digestive aid; in India most vegetarians consume it for it’s abundant Vitamin B12 and essential minerals; when Russian children return to school they will resume their cafeteria regimen of raw kefir before the first bell; and on Jan 1st in most European countries, people start their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight, by consuming extra portions of raw kefir and intermittent fasting. (And, they lose weight + feel great + have glowing skin!!).
Raw Kefir’s combination of beneficial bacteria and yeasts, can repopulate your digestive tract with probiotics which can eliminate harmful bacteria. It is also abundant in fiber, which can help with constipation but prevent diarrhea and enterocolitis (inflammation in the small intestine and colon). The microorganism compilation of kefir has shown to lower the risk of stomach cancer in a study published in the International Dairy Journal, where researchers noted that certain probiotic strains induce apoptosis of gastric cancer cells.
You can use Raw Kefir in smoothies, soups, ice cream, salad dressings, dips or sauces, in baking to substitute yoghurt or buttermilk, and holistic dermatologists often instruct patients to use Raw Kefir as a facial wash, because it balances the skin’s acid/alkaline levels. And who doesn’t want to look fabulous, starting the new year!
