One of David Wolfe's favorite Blast bases, kefir is a probiotic, fermented drink most often made from milk or a milk substitute, such as soy milk, rice milk, coconut milk, even coconut water. Made by combining the milk or milk substitute with kefir grains or a probiotic, kefir has a tangy, effervescent taste that's similar to yogurt. When combined, the live bacteria in the kefir grains begin to feed on the sugars found in the liquid base, creating this digestive drink that was once hailed as a gift from the gods. When ingested, the beneficial bacteria and yeast colonize your digestive tract, helping stimulate the growth of beneficial gut flora.

Selection Process

You can buy commercial kefir in most major grocery stores or health food stores, or kefir starter kits. Check out this video by David Wolfe showing you how to easily make kefir in your home.
