Health Benefits of Kefir

As a nutritionist, I am always on the lookout for foods that provide both taste and health benefits, and kefir is one such food. Kefir is a fermented dairy product that originated in the Caucasus Mountains and has been used for centuries for its many health benefits. This tangy, creamy, and slightly effervescent food is now widely available and is quickly becoming a popular addition to many diets. In this blog post, I will explore the many benefits of kefir and why it should be a staple in your diet.

What is Kefir?
Kefir is a fermented dairy product that is made from kefir grains, which are a symbiotic culture of yeast and bacteria. The kefir grains are mixed with milk and allowed to ferment, resulting in a probiotic-rich food that is high in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Kefir is similar to yogurt, but has a thinner consistency and a tangier flavor. The exact strains present can vary depending on the type of kefir and the method of production. However, some of the most common probiotic strains found in kefir include:

  1. Lactobacillus kefiranofaciens
  2. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  3. Bifidobacterium bifidum
  4. Lactobacillus casei
  5. Lactobacillus lactis
  6. Lactococcus lactis
  7. Leuconostoc mesenteroides

In addition to these probiotic strains, kefir also contains yeast, such as Saccharomyces kefir and Candida kefir, which contribute to the unique flavor and texture of the product. The combination of bacteria and yeast in kefir creates a symbiotic relationship that results in a highly nutritious and beneficial product. To maximize the probiotic benefits of kefir, it is best to choose plain, unsweetened varieties and consume it regularly as part of a balanced diet

Health Benefits of Kefir

  1. Probiotics: Kefir is a rich source of probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that help to balance the gut microbiome. The gut microbiome is a crucial aspect of overall health, and a healthy gut microbiome has been linked to improved immune function, reduced inflammation, and better overall health.
  2. Antioxidants: Kefir is a rich source of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, which help to protect the body against damage from free radicals and improve overall immune function.
  3. Vitamin D: Some kefir products are fortified with vitamin D, which has been shown to play a role in regulating the immune system and reducing the risk of certain diseases.
  4. Lactoferrin: Kefir is a rich source of lactoferrin, a protein that has antibacterial and antiviral properties and helps to boost the immune system.
  5. Anti-inflammatory effects: Kefir has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, which can reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall immune function.

Ways to Incorporate Kefir into Your Diet

  1. Smoothies: Kefir can be used as a base for smoothies, adding probiotics, creaminess, and tanginess to your favorite smoothie recipe.
  2. Salad dressing: Kefir can be used as a base for salad dressing, providing a tangy and creamy alternative to traditional store-bought dressings
  3. As is: Kefir can also be enjoyed on its own, straight from the container. It is a delicious and refreshing snack that is high in probiotics and other nutrients.

Introductory LIIFT UnTherapy Session


This is your opportunity to discover how LIIFT UnTherapy works. You'll learn a bit about the theory. And you'll see the theory turned into healings in your own life.

Target audience

Teens and adults seeking to improve their happiness, success and love life. Caregivers, parents and grandparents of troubled youth.


You will understand how LIIFT UnTherapy heals so effectively. And you will experience its power as you create 3 or 4 healings in your life under the guidance of your LIIFT UnTherapist.


We will start the session with an explanation of LIIFT UnTherapy. We will then establish a numerical baseline showing the level of life dysfunction that you want to heal. We will then follow guidance from your subconscious mind to carry out 3 or 4 healings depending on the length of time each requires. (A full session can run 6 to 16 discrete healings.) We will close by checking how your numbers have improved compared with the baseline we established earlier.

Other comments

LIIFT is unusual in that you don't have to remember what happened, you don't have to talk about it, and you don't have to re-experience it. Your conscious, your subconscious and I, your LIIFT UnTherapist will together work to erase the damage and install happier more functional stuff in your life.
