Ok so we can’t take credit for inventing Kefir, those kudos are due to the nomadic shepherds who lived in the Caucasus Mountains over 2000 years ago. The name originates from the word “keif” which literally translates to “good feeling”, which is a pretty accurate summary of how you feel after drinking Yorlife. Kefir is a fermented drink, made by adding kefir grains to milk and allowing it to ferment. But “what is a Kefir grain” I hear you ask, well they aren’t actually grains, they‘re live cultures of yeast and lactic acid which look a bit like cauliflower. These grains ferment and “culture” the milk, growing lots of the good bacteria we need to keep our internal eco systems running efficiently. The grains are then removed and can be used again and again and again as they are living organisms… You have probably heard how good probiotic yogurt is for your gut health, well if you think that a typical tub of these yogurts contain between one and two cultures and your typical 250ml serving of Yorlife Kefir contains almost 50 it’s easy to see that Kefir comes out top trumps when it comes to keeping your gut happy.
Besides containing highly beneficial bacteria and yeasts, kefir is a rich source of many different vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and general goodness*. For more on how fabulous this little miracle drink is take a peek at our kefir health benefits.
