Kefir Mushroom Health Benefits
What is kefir?
These days the number of various healthy drinks on the market is increasing even as we speak, but among them a prominent place deserves one ancient health product - the kefir yogurt. The health benefits of Kefir yogurt are numerous, and best evidence for that is the longevity and good health of the people in the regions of Tibet and Caucasus where the culture of kefir producing milk mushroom originated many thousands years ago. After all, the best known original kefir is the Caucasian one.
In the middle of the 90's of the last century, the kefir yogurt became very popular health drink in our society. The kefir yogurt drink is not only healthy, it is also very tasteful.

Once you get your original kefir mushroom, you can make your healthy kefir yogurt every day for as long as you like. The kefir fungus is practically immortal - you can use it forever, because it is able to double its size in no more than 17 days. This is how more kefir grains are made.
Here we are talking about a symbiotic organism which in its essence possesses a sour milk bacteria. It is a unique culture that has no match in its beneficial influence on human organism.

The original kefir should be consumed on a daily basis for 20 or 30 consecutive days. After this period of time, a pause of 10 days is recommended. This cycle should be repeated several times until you notice an improvement in your health condition. Do not put it in contact with metal objects. The kefir culture should always be kept within a glass jar filled with milk, otherwise after 24 hours it will lose its kefir health benefits.
