Kefir Plus from Turmeric and Honey

What is Kefir?

Kefir is a probiotic drink containing around 30 strains of 'good gut bacteria', and is considered to be one of the oldest and most beneficial cultured milk beverages in existence. Our Kefir Plus powder can survive and thrive in the gut better than similar milk-based products, due to the way the bacteria strains have been isolated and purified to be stable in the acidic environment of the digestive system. This can result in a huge number of health benefits, including:

  • improved digestion and bowel function
  • improved absorption of minerals
  • weight loss
  • reduced bloating and constipation
  • increased tolerance to some foods

However, the gut is responsible for far more than just our digestion. Dr. Michael Mosley’s recent research has shown that good gut health can improve your mood and energy levels - it’s being called the second brain. Kefir plays a key role in promoting a healthy gut ecology within your body, which will help you to feel your best, both physically and emotionally.


Why choose Kefir PLUS?

  • Kefir Plus is dairy-free which means that those who are lactose intolerant are able to enjoy the taste and the benefits. In addition, the Kefir will support the gut ecology in a way that reduces intolerance, and will reduce lactose or other food intolerances.
  • Aside from being a great tasting banana and carrot flavour, our Kefir Plus is a research-based supplement which combines L. bulgaricus and L. kefir. These both play a beneficial role in helping heal and support the gut, increase immunity, reduce pH levels, and regulate serum lipid levels.
  • The bacteria has been standardised and purified to survive the acidic environment of the stomach, as generally most probiotics available in the market are not stable in the acidic environment of the digestive system. The probiotics are able to transit to the colon and help alleviate symptoms of chronic constipation, establish good bacteria after taking antibiotics, and have benefits for H. Pylori and IBS sufferers.
  • Plus the ‘Glutamine’ and ‘N Acetyl Glucosamine’ helps to reduce gut inflammation. These two supplements work alongside the Kefir to heal the gut wall, reduce inflammation and boost your immune system. L. Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles, and having the correct levels will lead to more energy and allow your body to recover and repair more quickly. These supplements also work to improve skin health, especially for conditions like eczema, rosacea, and acne.
  • Even the banana and carrot flavour contain pectin which will help to break down food in the colon.

How should you take your Kefir Plus?

We recommend taking one sachet in a 150ml glass of water, juice, smoothie or milk after a meal in the evening, as this will improve digestion and absorption of nutrients after food intake.
The taste is a delicious natural banana and carrot flavour, which is added to improve the breakdown of cellulose food material.
Mixing with hot drinks or hot water is not recommended. Do not mix with honey, sugar or agave or maple syrup.


Nutritional Information
The powder contains a minimum of 1 billion cells of both L kefir and L bulgaricus as live active bacteria, so our customers know exactly what they are taking.
  • L.bulgaricus is proteolytic. It supports digestion and is recommended for overall support of the friendly bacteria, digestibility of milk products and other proteins, and immune enhancement.
  • L.kefir can be found in many different environments and in fermented foods such as sauerkraut and pickles, also fermented milk and milk products. L.kefir mediates adhesion and provides the ability to be transferred to non-adhesive lactic acid bacteria.

Want to know more about Kefir?

Kefir is traditionally in the form of a fermented drink, made and consumed for centuries in the Caucasus Mountains. It was originally made with goat’s or cow’s milk, but may also be made with coconut milk. It is made by adding kefir “grains” to the liquid and leaving at room temperature to ferment. During this time, healthy bacteria proliferate, changing the taste of the milk to a tangy, yeasty flavor.

Kefir grains contain around 30 strains of bacteria and yeasts which include Lactobacillus Kefir, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Candida species and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. It modifies the gut ecology, and helps break down cellulose and starches in the diet, making them more digestible.

Because our gut bacteria is constantly communicating with our brain, changes in our gut microbiota also affect our mental acuity, moods and emotional health. Regular consumption of kefir and yogurt has been shown to:

  • have a beneficial effect on your mood
  • reduce levels of anxiety and depression
Good gut bacteria = A healthy body

Recent experiments in Britain have shown that regular drinking of kefir may have more benefits than expensive probiotic drinks (which often contain sugar to make them more palatable). One of the benefits seen in volunteers who consumed kefir for four weeks, was an increase in lactobacillus – a family of friendly bacteria, known to help create balance in the gut, which may benefit those with lactose intolerance or enteric infection causing traveller’s diarrhoea.

As well as this, tolerance to some foods may be improved with the daily consumption of transitory lactic bacteria and the availability of a more accessible source of nutrition to selectively feed the adherence strains of lactic bacteria can also be enhanced by the digestive activity provided by L bulgaricus and L kefir. The activity of phyto-oestrogens such as lignans may also be enhanced through the interaction of these transient bacteria.
