(NaturalHealth365) Thanks to the fermentation craze, fizzy, probiotic-forward drinks such as kefir and kombucha are the elixirs of choice in health food circles. Originating in the Caucasus Mountains and derived from the Turkish word keyif, meaning “feeling good,” kefir is a nutrient-dense, milk-based drink packed with protein, B vitamins, potassium, and calcium. But it’s kefir’s high level of probiotics, a group of living cultures that help balance intestinal flora and improve gut health (microbiome), that have health-conscious consumers reaching for the sour, creamy concoction. Kefir is a wonder drink that has been popular in certain parts of the world for centuries, but if you’re just learning about it now, you’re not alone. .. kefir (pronounced keh-feer) has long lived in the shadow of kombucha, its trendy, probiotic “cousin.”

(NaturalHealth365) Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis are serious conditions, with the Centers for Disease Control reporting that the disorders claim over 41,000 lives per year. But there is hope that emerging data can change this bleak figure – researchers say that when it comes to a dangerous complication of liver disease that affects the brain, probiotics can play a lifesaving role.
