Yes fruit is good for you, but this is serious overkill. A 32-ounce blend can pack as many as 700 calories with fewer than 2 grams of protein thanks to the high sugar content. That's like eating a whole pineapple, entire mango and 1 cup each of blueberries and strawberries in a single sitting. Why that's bad: Calories from any food get socked away in your fat cells if you eat more than you can burn.
For far fewer calories—about 120 per cup and a healthy balance of carbs, protein and fat—pour yourself a cup of kefir. In addition to the 10 grams of satiating protein and 5 grams of filling fiber, kefir contains friendly probiotic bacteria—about 10 different strains compared to 2-3 in yogurt. These good bugs have been shown to help improve digestive health, boost immunity and control body weight. And animal studies have shown that kefir is a potent cancer-fighting food.

What if I’m lactose intolerant, and don’t do dairy? Or don’t digest milk products well? Is kefir right for me? The beneficial yeast and friendly bacteria in the kefir culture consume most of the lactose (or milk sugar). Eat kefir on an empty stomach first thing in the morning before (or for) breakfast and you’ll be delighted to find it can be easily digested — as numerous people who have been lactose intolerant for years have discovered.
dan kenapa die kate kefir lebih baik dari yogurt..
Both kefir and yogurt are cultured milk products…
…but they contain different types of beneficial bacteria. Yogurt contains transient beneficial bacteria that keep the digestive system clean and provide food for the friendly bacteria that reside there. But kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract, a feat that yogurt cannot match.
Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria not commonly found in yogurt, Lactobacillus Caucasus, Leuconostoc, Acetobacter species, and Streptococcus species.
It also contains beneficial yeasts, such as Saccharomyces kefir and Torula kefir, which dominate, control and eliminate destructive pathogenic yeasts in the body. They do so by penetrating the mucosal lining where unhealthy yeast and bacteria reside, forming a virtual SWAT team that housecleans and strengthens the intestines. Hence, the body becomes more efficient in resisting such pathogens as E. coli and intestinal parasites.
Kefir’s active yeast and bacteria provide more nutritive value than yogurt by helping digest the foods that you eat and by keeping the colon environment clean and healthy. Because the curd size of kefir is smaller than yogurt, it is also easier to digest, which makes it a particularly excellent, nutritious food for babies, the elderly and people experiencing chronic fatigue and digestive disorders.
Body Ecology Kefir Starter contains the following beneficial bacteria:
Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
