Excerpt From Scientific Study

“Kefir, the traditional beverage, is now recognized as a potential source of probiotics and molecules with highly interesting healthy properties. The careful and detailed characterization of kefir composition has helped the scientific community to find new possibilities for its application. Kefiran, the EPS of kefir, has very important physicochemical and rheological properties. Besides, its biological properties suggest its use as antioxidant, antitumor agent, antimicrobial agent, and immunomodulator, among other roles. Research is constantly being conducted to consolidate kefir and kefiran properties for the development of new important products to preserve consumer’s health.” –  Study Link
