Health Benefits of Goat Milk Kefir
Here's to Your Health!
A gluten-free and low glycemic food, Kefir contains vitamins, minerals and complete proteins.
What Makes Kefir a Healthy Food?
An ancient dairy food, Kefir is being embraced for its apparent and potential health benefits:
- Easily digested, kefir provides beneficial bacteria, balancing the levels of "good" and "bad" bacteria.
- A balanced and nourishing food containing vitamins, minerals, and complete proteins.
- Kefir is easily digested for people who suffer from lactose intolerance.
- The complete proteins in kefir are partially digested and more easily utilized by the body.
The word kefir is thought to have been derived from the Turkish word "keif" for "good feeling" and kefir was once considered a gift from the gods. The health benefits of kefir are still being discovered and explored, but we're convinced it's a simple and delicious way to add vitamins, minerals, and good bacteria to your diet.
Flourish: Laboratory testing shows that our Redwood Hill Farm brand kefir averages 2.6 billion live probiotics per gram! We use an average as batches can vary slightly and the number of probiotics at the beginning of our products ‘life’ can be slightly more or less than at the end of the products life.
Cultured dairy products—such as Redwood Hill Farm Kefirs—are among the tastiest, most convenient and time-tested vehicles for delivering a daily dose of probiotics. There is a large volume of research that has been done in the field of probiotic health and research continues on this important health topic. We invite you to talk to your nutritionist or other health professional for information on how probiotics can work for you.
