Super Food Tip: Kefir offers good bacteria

Kefir is similar to a drinkable yogurt. It contains protein, calcium and has multiple strains of good gut bacteria versus yogurt’s single strain. Kefir is a standout as a probiotic food. It enhances digestion of other foods and it makes valuable nutrients such as vitamin B12 and vitamin K in the gut. You can drink flavored kefir or use it in smoothies. Some recipes use kefir in baking, but this is not recommended because heat kills the bacteria.
