I have been drinking kefir for the past six or seven years upon the advice of our traditional Chinese medicine doctor. It has definitely improved my gut health. After listening to this podcast and further reading of the health benefits of kefir I thought kefir needed to be explored by more people as a possible addition to their diet.
Read about the adverse effects of kefir which may affect a few individuals before talking the gulp. The flavored ones contain a lot of sugar and I avoid them. The plain flavor can be an acquired taste but I enjoy the tangy pop. Found goat milk kefir nearby and hope to return to it soon. **
**I am not in the medical or nutritional field so my comments should be taken with a gulp of kefir if you are so brave.
(Chuckling Goats was even contacted by the producers of the wonderful soap The Archers for advice on kefir.)
