What to look for when buying kefir
Not all probiotics are created equal. Some can be a little, well… delicate. And not all of them deal well with being exposed to changes in temperature, acidity or humidity.
That’s why you’ll sometimes find probiotic supplements in the fridge at your chemist. It’s also why you can’t always be sure of getting full health benefits from just anything that claims to have probiotics in it. Depending on the strain of bacteria a product provides, the probiotics in it may not make it through your digestive system to get to your gut alive.
It’s something we got the boffins at Nexba to focus on when developing our kefir.
Nexba Kefir contains 500 million live smart, robust probiotic bacteria called Bacillus coagulans. These little guys are encased in a hard, protein-like shell that helps them to survive the harsh conditions of your stomach. That means they’ll make it all the way to your gut intact.
Nexba Strawberry & Peach Kefir is available at Coles and online here.
