Kefir Grains Produce a Fantastic Nutrient-Rich Drink
Kefir is a fermented drink, traditionally made using cow’s milk or goat’s milk.
It is made by adding kefir grains to milk.
These are not “grains” in the conventional sense, but cultures of yeast and lactic acid bacteria that resemble a cauliflower in appearance.
Over a period of 24 hours or so, the microorganisms in the grains multiply and ferment the sugars in the milk, turning it into kefir. Then the grains are removed from the liquid, and can be used again.
So basically, kefir is the drink, but kefir grains are the “starter kit” that you use to produce the drink.
Kefir originated from parts of Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The name is derived from the Turkish word keyif, which means “feeling good” after eating.
The lactic acid bacteria turn the lactose in the milk into lactic acid, so kefir tastes sour like yogurt, but has a thinner consistency.
A 175 ml (6 oz) serving of milk kefir contains:
- Protein: 6 grams.
- Calcium: 20% of the RDA.
- Phosphorus: 20% of the RDA.
- Vitamin B12: 14% of the RDA.
- Riboflavin (B2): 19% of the RDA.
- Magnesium: 5% of the RDA.
- A good amount of vitamin D.
All delivered in about 100 calories, 7-8 grams of carbs and 3-6 grams of fat, depending on the type of milk that is used. We highly recommend you use raw milk in your kefir!
Kefir also contains a wide variety of bioactive compounds, including organic acids and peptides that contribute to its unusual health benefits.
Dairy-free versions of kefir can be made with coconut water, coconut milk or other sweet liquids. These will not have the same nutrient profile as dairy-based kefir products, however.
Fun Fact: Raw Milk Kefir Is Predigested.
If your small intestine no longer makes the enzyme lactase, which is needed to break down milk sugars, dairy will be difficult to digest, aka you are lactose intolerant. Also, when someone has a permeable, leaky gut lining, the proteins in dairy leak through and cause an immune response against these proteins — specifically, casein and whey protein. These proteins are found in cow, goat, and sheep’s milk.
You get a more powerful Probiotic Than Yogurt!
Some microorganisms can have beneficial effects on health when ingested.
Known as probiotics, these microorganisms can influence health in numerous ways, including digestion, weight management and mental health.
Yogurt is the best known probiotic food in the Western diet, but kefir is actually a much more potent source.
Kefir grains contain about 30 strains of bacteria and yeasts, making it a very rich and diverse probiotic source.
Other fermented dairy products are made from far fewer strains, and don’t contain any yeasts.
More Info on Raw Milk Kefir
Raw milk kefir is the most potent probiotic with over 30 strains of usable good bacteria. Often people tell me they drink kefir for their probiotics. I ask them if it’s pasteurized or raw. This makes them think..
Almost everything (all dairy products), including the kefir you buy in the store has been pasteurized. This means that its nutrients have been altered and some completely destroyed, because during pasteurization all of the good bacteria, enzymes, and more are killed. The result is a dead product that contains some beneficial bacteria – not too useful to the body because the kefir has completely lost its nutritional synergy. It makes more sense to leave nature alone. Nature always knows best.

To quote from an abstract on a scientific study carried out by the National Institutes of Health:
“Perturbation of bacterial microflora of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may play an important role in the pathophysiology of some GI disorders. Probiotics have been used as a treatment modality for over a century. They may restore normal bacterial microflora and effect the functioning of the GI tract by a variety of mechanisms. Probiotics are not currently regulated and only few randomized controlled trials exist investigating their efficacy in different GI disorders. They are available in a variety of formulations and delivery systems making interpretation and comparison of studies
even more difficult. The efficacy of probiotics, either as a single strain or a combination of probiotics, has been tested in antibiotic-associated diarrhea, Clostridium difficile colitis, infectious diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, pouchitis, and irritable bowel syndrome, among other disorders. Results of the studies are reviewed in this article and recommendations
for probiotic use in these disorders are made. Although probiotics appear to be generally safe in an outpatient setting, the situation may be different in immunocompromised, hospitalized patients who may be at a greater risk of developing probiotic sepsis. [Stick with us and you won’t ever see the inside of a hospital!]
No studies exist addressing the issue of safety specifically. Many questions regarding use of probiotics in GI disorders remain to be answered in future studies, such as most optimal doses, duration of treatment, physiological and immunological effects, efficacy of specific probiotics in specific disease states, and safety in debilitated patients.”
That’s the “official” word from the NIH. We self-healers know better. We know that probiotics are Mother Nature’s answer to dis-ease, and have been since men and women began milking cows and sheep and goats.
