We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Award Winning Dietician, Lucy Jones, to help provide you with a better understanding of the nutritional benefits of Kefir. 

With the new year officially in full swing it’s time to think about our health again, particularly our gut health.

The health benefits of Kefir have been established over many centuries. Naturally high in protein and calcium, it is packed with essential vitamins (including B12 and B2) and contains billions of gut-friendly bacteria (including Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus rhamnosus) – in fact there are over 4 billion CFU’s per bottle. Kefir is lot more probiotic than yoghurt.

Research shows that there are greater quantities and more varied types of beneficial bacteria in Kefir than yoghurt, and that regular consumption can improve digestion and our tolerance to lactose” says dietician Lucy Jones.

The gut-friendly bacteria and B vitamins also support the immune system and intestine, aiding your body’s natural defences. What’s more, Kefir’s antibiotic properties can help you fight pathogens, making you feel stronger and more positive. 60% – 80% of our immune system is located in our guts after all!
