Your intestinal tract is your largest immune system fighting organ, making it one powerful force for your health in the fight for better digestive health. With over 400 species of bacteria living inside our intestines, it is very important to keep the levels of good and bad bacteria in balance. Kefir and probiotics do just that, preventing digestive problems ranging from constipation to diarrhea.
Kefir is highly digestible. Due to its acidity and enzymes, Kefir stimulates digestion of other foods, decreases the cholesterol content in blood and improves salivation and excretion of stomach and pancreatic enzymes and peristalsis. It can even help those suffering from digestive tract disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
Lactose intolerant? Kefir is the most favorable milk product for people suffering from genetically stipulated lactose intolerance. It actively improves lactose digestion as its live and active probiotic cultures actively break down the sugars in the milk. Consumption of probiotics even helps build tolerance to lactose over time.
