Why Kefir is good for you

The VillageGreenShop sells Kefir made from grass fed fermented raw milk.

I’ve researched a bit and here’s what I’ve found why Kefir is excellent for you.

img830Kefir is a cultured, enzyme-rich food filled with friendly micro-organisms that help balance your “inner ecosystem. More nutritious and therapeutic than yogurt, it supplies complete protein, essential minerals, and valuable B vitamins.

  • Kefir is used to restore the inner eco-system after antibiotic therapy.
  • Kefir can be made into a delicious smoothie that kids love.
  • Kefir is excellent nourishment for pregnant and nursing women, the elderly, and those with compromised immunity.

What if you’re lactose intolerant, and don’t do dairy? Or don’t digest milk products well? Is kefir right for you?
The beneficial yeast and friendly bacteria in the kefir culture consume most of the lactose (or milk sugar). So it is safe to drink!  It is even superior if you drink kefir on an empty stomach first thing in the morning before (or for) breakfast and you’ll be delighted to find it can be easily digested — as numerous people who have been lactose intolerant for years have discovered.

Food and Farming

There has never been a better time to push food security higher up in the agenda at summits as hunger and malnutrition continue to rise around the world according to UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir John Beddington.  He further said that solutions can come from simple technologies such as agro-forestry, improved irrigation to high tech advances in biotechnology. Also he further stressed that we need to do our best to reduce waste both domestically and globally, and most importantly, for agriculture to work harder to reduce hunger by improving the sustainability of the food system around the world.”
