- Product Description
Quality kefir grains are hard to come by, because they are live organisms, and so we cannot mass-produce them.
When people ask me what the two most important steps in 12 Steps to Whole Foods are, it’s kind of like asking who my favorite child is when I love them all.
But with so many people with gut issues, I say Step 1 and 8. The prebiotics and the probiotics!
Step 8 is all about making fermented foods to replace the probiotics missing in anyone’s diet who has EVER been on antibiotics, or who eats processed food, or who has ever eaten animal products from animals fed antibiotics.
When you start eating kefir every day, you may find you don’t get sick any more. It’s a critically important habit to keep your immune system strong. Most of your immune function is in your gut. Your helpful microorganisms in your body outnumber your body’s cells 9 times over.
(If your gut is healthy, that is. Most people have the opposite--more bad than good! This leads to risk for viral and bacterial infections and other disease risk, plus chronic gastrointestinal distress.)
These living grains are infinitely re-useable and will grow to be much more so you’ll be able to share them with your health-minded friends!
