I use kefir everyday, I have it in the morning as a shake with berries and primal defense. Kefir is rich in B Vitamins as well as essential amino acids that you need to assimilate proteins as well as other nutrients. The B vitamin complex is great for giving you energy, it can be a great replacement for coffee.
Adding kefir to your diet is a smart move as it will rebuild your internal eco-system or your second brain if I can quote www.ettlt.com and I think I can.
By rebuilding your digestive tract you are helping your body to digest the nutrients you get from your food. Thus you will be less hungry, less sick and full of energy. I have known kefir to also be great at settling the stomach after a indulgence of something I know shouldn't have eaten.
Kefir is better when grown yourself with grass fed organic milk as you are getting even more nutrients from a"safer" source. But it is also a good way to healthy up you milk, and its works great even if you are lactose intolerant.
Have a great day!
