Turkish Words and Gut Health

Kefir – what and why?

I’ve been making my own Kefir. Why? Because it has loads of healthy gut bacteria.

It comes from the Turkish word ‘keif’ which means good feeling. It is a sort of fermented yoghurt drink full of probiotics, the microbes that live in our gut.

The health benefits are

  • boosting immunity

  • calming inflammation

  • helping digestion and

  • creating amino acids (protein) and vitamins. 

I’m going to try it with coconut milk next time.

Once you have the ‘grains’ (which don’t look like grains at all…I would call them curds!) it is so easy to make.
