A two thousand year-old drink traditional to Eastern Europe, Kefir is high in protein, low in sugar and includes ten more strains of probiotics than yoghurt. Kefir means “feel good” in Turkish, and we now understand why!

Put simply- the gut is filled with all kinds of different bacteria, however sometimes stressful lifestyles, combined with the use of antibiotics can eliminate all the good bacteria- causing havoc for the digestive tract.

Kefir contains live and active bacteria cultures filled with beneficial bacteria to clear out your intestines, and sooth your digestive system leading to overall improved wellness.
