The major difference is that Kefir contains several major strains of bacteria which are beneficial to our gut health that are not commonly found in yoghurt. It also contains several beneficial yeasts which take control and eliminate bad pathogenic yeasts in the body (did someone say superfood?!). They do this by penetrating the lining of the gut where unhealthy yeasts live, which makes the body more efficient in resisting nasty pathogens and parasites.
Kefir also assists in helping to digest foods by keeping the colon environment clean and healthy. The curd size is also smaller than yoghurt which also makes it easier for the very young or elderly to digest.
The best part? It’s REALLY easy to make at home.
