You Should Drink More Kefir. Here's Why
By Camryn Teder
The world of dairy is one of the most challenging markets to navigate health-wise. It can be overwhelming to see a wide variety of healthy dairy products and dairy milk alternatives lined up at the store, but if you are craving a dairy-based drink, look no further than kefir.
Kefir is a natural protein shake full of zinc, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as vitamin B12, calcium, vitamin A, and riboflavin. Due to its fermented nature, it offers more probiotics than yogurt, which helps promote a healthy gut in addition to mental and bone health.
Kefir also aids in preventing cancer, boosts immune health, lowers blood pressure, and supports your digestive system, but like anything, it's best to drink kefir in moderation. There also might be better choices for lactose-intolerant consumers, but for a daily rush of protein, it could be a good idea to stock up on this beverage in the fridge for healthy maintenance.
