Water Kefir Grains also known as Japanese Water Crystals are living grains that make great kefir. Kefir is a fermented drink that has billions of living probiotics. Probiotics are billions of “friendly” bacteria in your gut that are beneficial to your health and they are similar to the bacteria in probiotics. Living bacteria are essential to good health and they take care of the bad nasty bacteria that try to take up resident. So trust me, you want these billions of living bacteria to do their job. Probiotics are excellent for digestion, boosting immunity, lowering cholesterol, and blood pressure and that’s why kefir is so beneficial and so easy to make.
How to make Kefir?
Kefir can assume a variety of flavors just by adding organic fresh or dried fruit to your alkaline water add kefir grains in a quart or bigger glass container (never use metal on kefir grains it will kill the grains and they wont be effective) and about ½ cup of sugar and cover with a cloth. Yes, I said sugar. I know, it sounds crazy coming from me, but the kefir grains eat sugar, which then ferments the water, and turn it into living probiotics. After 24 hours in a dark cupboard between 65 to 75 degrees the results are a fizzy drink that taste delicious. Simply strain the liquid using a plastic strainer into another glass container. The kefir water is now ready to drink. Use the grains immediately for your next batch of water kefir, and keep it going. If you’re not using the kefir grain you can store them in some organic alkaline sugar-water for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
