Kefir is a fermented milk product that originated centuries ago in the Caucasus mountains, and is now enjoyed by many different cultures worldwide, particularly in Europe and Asia.
The word “kefir” is derived from the Turkish word “keif”, which literally translates to the “good feeling” one has after drinking it. Traditional cultures have attributed healing powers to kefir for centuries.
There are MANY therapeutic benefits including:
- Kefir contains Probiotics PLUS Prebiotice, delivering 100 times more good bacteria than pills or powders.
- Kefir is easily digested, and our raw milk kefir (Answers) comes from Jersey cows, which are much less prone to cause dairy sensitivities.
- Raw Milk Kefir provides a number of enzymes contributing to the ready absorption of vitamins & minerals.
- Kefir has been shown to suppress imflammatory responses related to allergies and asthma (in humans). Raw milk kefir is a natural anti-histamine.
- Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), aka the cancer fighting fat is found in high numbers of grass fed animals.
- Kefir contains Alkylglycerols which are known to increase white blood cell counts in cancer patients and boost immune cells.
- High in vitamins and rich in Vitamin K2
- Kefir has a main amino acid, glutathione which is a “master antioxidant”
Fermented Raw Cow’s Milk Kefir is less expensive than raw goat’s milk and provides high levels of Probiotics.
Raw Milk Kefir is higher in calories and fat, and is recommended for animals who may be struggling to keep weight on.
Toy breed, small dogs and cats do best on raw goat’s milk, but adding kefir to their diet if they are fighting chronic infection or yeast can be very beneficial. For medium and large dogs we recommend a combination fo raw goat’s milk and kefir to provide a wider range of nutrients.
