Delicious Homemade VIVO Kefir – Healthy metabolism. Gut health. Losing weight. Reducing the risk of cancer. Suppressing the development of pathogenic bacteria. Natural. Homemade. Delicious. Are you in? All of these amazing benefits can come from what you eat. Specifically, they can come from VIVO Kefir. I’ve talked quite a bit about VIVO Yogurt Starters in the past few months, but I have to admit that if there is one food that we try to consume every single day in our household, it is kefir.
VIVO’s Kefir culture has many benefits (as you read above 🙂 ) and it is very easy to use. They provide a powdered starter, you provide room temperature milk and you’ve got pretty much everything you need to make your own, healthy and tasty homemade kefir. This starter culture contains a unique natural symbiosis. In other words, it has a microflora of kefir fungi that consists of bacteria of various species and strains. Oftentimes, other kefir products contain only lactobacilli and, if you’re lucky, bifidobacteria. If you take a look at the ingredient (drop-down menu) list of VIVO’s Kefir starter culture you will easily see that it has many more beneficial strains of bacteria in it, which will in turn, provide you with many more benefits!
One of the benefits that people may enjoy the most is that, when used regularly, kefir will boost your metabolism and help to reduce body weight and fat content in the body. Personally, this is not the reason why we use kefir, so I cannot attest to seeing any weight loss…but I’d love to hear your stories if you have some! 🙂
VIVO Kefir has come up with a starter that creates real kefir. Not the sugary kind that you buy in the store. This kefir has a REAL taste and aroma that your grandparents will remember from long ago. Our family has grown to love this real, sugar-free kefir and we use it either plain, or in smoothies almost every day.
Unlike the yogurt starters from VIVO, the Kefir starter culture needs a bit of a different preparation plan. However, it is not any more difficult. In fact, it is easier as it can be made with room temperature milk. It takes a bit longer to ferment that yogurt, but it is worth it when it is ready!
Kefir is a great way to start building up or supporting your health in a variety of different ways. VIVO has made it simple to make at home with their starters, and in no time you’ll be enjoying your very own homemade kefir and all the benefits that come along with it!
