So, you have probably heard of Probiotics by now, and may know how good they are for so many things…. but have you heard of Water Kefir?!
If not, you’re missing out on a great way to get your probiotics NATURALLY and basically for FREE (except for what you flavor the water with)!
I always become skeptical when taking a pill-form of anything, so when I found out about this alternative for probiotics, I had to try it!
First, you should know the benefits of probiotics, if you don’t already! Some of the benefits (read more at https://www.diamondherbs.co/benefits-of-probiotics-what-they-are-how-they-can-help-you/ ) include:
Reduces colds & flu’s
Fights off food borne illnesses
Prevents & treats kidney stones
Reduces the overuse of antibiotics
Improves overall digestive function
Prevents eczema (with children)
Prevents & removes acne
Boosts body’s immune system
Helps with weight loss
Heals inflammation in bowels
Prevents & treats urinary tract infections
Promotes oral health
Depression & Anxiety
I have also heard that it helps with Asthma, so I will have to follow up with that at a later date to see how it affects Adam since he suffers from Asthma regularly!
To start my first batch, I was given 1/4 cup of cultures from my cousin, whom was the one that told me about this amazing water!
I wanted to try the “lemonade” one that she made, but we used all of the lemons. Therefore, I improvised and followed this recipe for the Berry Water Kefir:
It turned out great! The kids love it and after drinking it for a few days, I already feel the positive results. What’s even better is that it’s much less expensive that the pill-form of a probiotic I had been taking before.
The cultures quickly multiply, so I now make double batches and even had enough to give away!
I have to admit, it is a “new process” that took me some time to learn fully, but I am so glad I invested that time for mine and my family’s health. I would recommend this to anyone that can take a Probiotic!
