About Kefir

Kefir is a cultured milk beverage that contains live and active cultures that clean and strengthen the intestines and help the body with healing and maintenance functions. The health and therapeutic benefits of Kefir trace their roots back over 2000 years, to the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. Literally “feel good” in Turkish, Kefir was considered a gift from the gods due to its health-promoting properties.

Kefir is prepared by culturing fresh milk, with kefir grains, which are basically groups of bacteria that have been proven to be beneficial to the human digestive system.

The end product is a creamy, slightly sour, refreshing milky beverage that is filled with these ‘friendly bacteria’. The fermentation process takes about 24 hours at room temperature which is much shorter than other cultured products such as yogurt.

It is said to have originated in the Northern Caucasus Mountains centuries ago, and has been associated with its numerous healing effects since the early eighteenth century. Claimed to have originally been a gift from Allah, it was passed from generation to generation for years before being exposed to the rest of the world.

The Healing Benefits of Kefir

Kefir is full of beneficial bacteria and thus can be labelled as a probiotic, which is to say that it contributes, enhances, and stabilizes the micro-organisms of the intestines. Since kefir is cultured mainly using live, active grains in a medium that is thick and coating, and because of the variety of ‘friendly bacteria’ found within, kefir seems to be a much better probiotic than many of the commercially available dried capsule products. These microbes are part of an essential team of around 400 types of bacteria found in the intestines that assist digestion and promote good health.

Most people don’t know that 60-70% of their immune system is in the gut as a vast network of lymph tissue referred to as GALT (gut associated lymphatic tissue). The probiotics in our gut are constantly interfacing with the GALT and essentially priming the immune system for contact with other bacteria. They serve as a way for the body to learn how to respond to bacteria without actually having to suffer an infection. This becomes particularly important in young children whose immune system is in constant state of development until about age 7.

Due to the immune system’s essential role in allergies, probiotics are closely related to mediating certain allergy symptoms.

Foods like Evolve Kefir are made by using these probiotics to culture the dairy product. Some residual live organisms are left in the final product and these can help to support healthy bacterial levels in the gut.
