WHAT IS KEFIR?

Originally from the Caucasus Mountains in the former Soviet Union in Central Asia, the word kefir derives from the Turkish word “Keyif”, which means “good feeling”.

either elixir™ kefir is fermented and rich in beneficial bacteria and yeast. Enjoying ether elixir™ kefir in your diet can benefit your kidneys, heart, immunity, and overall health.

Because ether elixir™ kefir is fermented, beneficial bacteria and yeast transform the natural sugars found in organic fruit juice—releasing powerful metabolites that often benefit the human body. The World Health Organization tells us that probiotics are, “Live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”.

Kefir often contains seven strains of probiotic bacteria and yeast. In 2007, the Turkish Microbial Society cultured all seven strains together. They then tested each individual strain and found that each one could protect against food-borne pathogens, such as Staphylococcus, Salmonella, and Listeria. (link)
