Kefir is a traditional fermented dairy drink with a mild ‘tang’. Consumed for centuries for its health benefits, Kefir is similar in texture and flavour to yoghurt – but with many more benefits.
Probiotic levels are 10 times more effective than most yoghurts
The probiotic level or effectiveness of yoghurt is measured by CFUs (colonising forming units). For yoghurt or kefir to have a positive effect on a person’s digestive system it must contain at least 1 billion CFUs per serve, which many yoghurts on the market today do not. Blue Bay Kefir contains over 12 billion CFUs per serve AND this number will continue to grow during its shelf life.
Kefir contains 3 times more probiotic strains than most yoghurts
Most commercial yoghurts have 3-4 strains of probiotic bacteria. Blue Bay Kefir contains 10 strains. The probiotics in yoghurt and fermented milk brands are only beneficial while it is passing through the intestinal system, meaning they must be consumed every day.
Kefir can help sufferers of allergies, diabetes, autoimmune and intestinal disorders and help with day to day intestinal health. Kefir is often recommended by doctors for patients taking antibiotics or having chemotherapy.
How much kefir should I have?
We recommend minimum 200ml of kefir daily or more if preferred.
How should I drink it?
Shake the bottle well before opening. Drink it straight or have it with muesli or in a smoothie.
