Kefir is a fermented milk product (cow, goat or sheep milk) that is one of the most probiotic rich foods on the planet. It comes in liquid form, so think drinkable yogurt with superpowers! Kefir contains high levels of vitamin B12 and K, calcium, magnesium, biotin, and folate. Probiotics are the healthy bacteria our bodies need for all sorts of functions, including digestion. And a healthy gut can also improve your immune response, so drink up! Choose the unflavored variety to avoid added sugars.
