The Lactose-Free WATER GRAINS
Our Water Grain SimplyKefir is a great complement to our PREBIOTIC Simply Inulin, you will even be able to add Simply Inulin into your Kefir Milk, Water Elixir Drink or Yogurt.
The grains are an actual living ecosystem that is composed of multiple strains (up to 400) of friendly bacteria and yeasts that are held together in a structure composed of proteins, lipids, and polysaccharides. Because the grains are alive and reproduce, with care and constant feeding the grains can be kept alive and continue producing kefir indefinitely. Kefir grains are often compared in looks to cauliflower heads, but have a gelatinous texture.
Different strains of kefir grains do not contain exactly the same mix of bacteria and yeasts, but certain probiotic microorganisms are almost always present. Many of the probiotics that are often found in kefir grains, and in varying degrees in the kefir, have been extensively studied by medical researchers with multiple positive health effects.
the bacteria in kefir and associated health benefits are as follows:
Lactobacillus acidophilus: Decrease cravings, regulate appetite, reduce stress, reduce acne, reduce rosacea, reduce irritable bowel syndrome, reduce asthma, reduce high cholesterol, assist in lactose digestion, prevent or treat diarrhea.
Lactobacillus casei. Decrease cravings, regulate and control appetite, produce collagen binding proteins, preventing antibiotic associated diarrhea and Clostridium difficile infections, treating diarrhea, treating pancreatic necrosis, treating SIBO.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus. Decrease cravings, regulate appetite, treat or prevent diarrhea, reduce anxiety, prevent eczema, support weight loss, produces Hyaluronic Acid for skin health, preventing abdominal obesity, produce collagen binding proteins, reduce inflammation in Crohn’s disease, reduce risk for respiratory infections in children, preventing or treating atopic dermatitis, preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs), reducing intestinal permeability (“Leaky Gut”)
Streptococcus thermophiles. Reduce anxiety, produces Hyaluronic Acid for healthy skin, increases skin ceramides, encourage steady growth rate in children, improves diet induced obesity and insulin resistance, preventing chemotherapy induced mucositis, reduce instances of lung cancer, prevent antibiotic induced diarrhea
