It is quick and simple to prepare, and once it is brewed, absolutely delicious. Even small children can enjoy it. It has a slightly sweet through to crisp, earthy, yeasty flavour, depending on how it was prepared. Sometimes when there are more yeasts in the brew it contains a tiny amount of alcohol and is slightly fizzy if bottled. Water kefir is a magnificent source of beneficial bacteria; it also contains a variety of enzymes and organic acids, and a range of B vitamins, vitamin K and folic acid (2). Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish. Water kefir is also known as tibicos, tibi, sugar kefir, Japanese water crystals, bebees, Australian bees, African bees, California Bees, ale nuts, balm of Gilead or beer seeds. Water kefir is made with kefir grains (small, translucent, gelatinous structures comprised of assorted bacteria and yeasts), water, and sugars. Kefir or tibicos cultures are found around the world, with no two cultures being exactly the same. Water kefir grains are translucent white and break easily when squeezed between the fingers. They more closely resemble irregular crystals. You can eat the kefir grains, they don't have much flavour but are a good probiotic. Water kefir heals candida, and is suitable for diabetics in small quantities provided they monitor their blood sugar level. The numerous benefits of water kefir are too significant to ignore.$17.75 – $80.00*Local Thai Banana and Organic Vanilla Kefir* (5 day process) Ingredients: Raw Organic handmade Fermented Coconut Milk Kefir, Maca, Lucuma, Local Thai bananas, Dates, Organic Vanilla, Probiotic Blend. *Vegan* *Organic*!$16.00 – $80.00Local Thai Banana Goat Kefir shakes (5 day process) Ingredients: Raw goat milk kefir, lucuma, Maca, Local Thai Banana *organic UPS delivery requires dry ice packing.$16.00 – $85.00*Mango Kefir* (5 day process) *Vegan* *Organic*! **Low sugar due to fermenting process** UPS delivery requires dry ice packing.$16.00 – $80.00Mango Goat Kefir shakes (5 day process) Ingredients: Raw goat milk kefir, lucuma, Maca, Mango, dates *organic
Is It Normal To Feel Sick After Drinking Kefir?
"This is the email I got from a frantic reader who had hoped kefir was going to be the answer to her prayers. The woman had a history of multiple antibiotics as a child and young adult. She has a history of IBS, and depression, as well as many digestive complaints. She started making her own kefir but every time she drinks it, she feels nauseated and gets a really bad headache. She is also complaining about a sensation of blood rushing in her ears. What is happening?
Most likely what this lady is experiencing is a herx reaction, and no this is not dangerous. It is actually a very good sign!
A Herxheimer reaction (sometimes called Herx for short) happens when organisms in your body start dying off, and release toxins into your blood stream. It was originally described as a reaction to taking antibiotics for an infection, but it happens much more frequently in the 'natural healing' world, as you cleanse your body of the bad and replace with the good!
Herx reactions are sometimes described as "die off", "healing crisis". The symptoms are diverse, and can be quite different for everybody. Some people will be terribly ill, and some people will have mild symptoms, or even no symptoms at all. Here are some things that you might feel when experiencing Herx reaction after drinking kefir:
Digestive issues- flatulence, foul smelling stools, unusual colored stools, diarrhea or constipation, cramping, heartburn, nausea etc
Flu-like symptoms- increase mucous production, low grade fever, sore throat, cough etc
Neurologic symptoms- headache, dizziness, 'brain fog', difficulty concentrating, depression or euphoria (drunk feeling), anxiety, extreme tiredness
Other- bad breath, achy joints, mild rash etc
All of these things are normal, so what do you do if you experience a Herx reaction? Or what if you are not sure if you are having a Herx reaction, or you are really sick? The answer is simple; Stop drinking kefir until the symptoms subside, and then go at it more slowly!
Start with a tablespoon. Wait a few hours, and if you feel fine, have another tablespoon.
The worst possible thing you can do is throw out your kefir and swear to never drink it again. People who have Herx reactions NEED to get rid of the bad bacteria that has taken over your life! You must persevere. Taking it a little at a time can reduce the severity of the symptoms and ensure that you are still getting the benefit of good probiotic bacteria."
