As you start to navigate this new arena of healthy, organic eating, you will find new foods and drinks that you probably have never heard of before. For example, today we are going to discuss the amazing health benefits of young coconut kefir and why you should be drinking it. It is probable that many of you do not know what young coconut kefir is. In fact, you’re probably asking yourself, “What is young coconut kefir?!?” Well don’t worry.
What is Young Coconut Kefir?
Before we delve into what young coconut kefir is, we feel it’s important for you to know what kefir is. Kefir is a natural probiotic drink which is full of beneficial bacteria that helps assist in digestion, helps support your immune system and helps keep your gut flora balanced.
Kefir typically is made with a dairy base, usually from goat, cow or sheep’s milk, and is then fermented using kefir grains. During the fermentation process the sugars are converted into beneficial probiotics, creating a health tonic that not only will encourage optimal gut health, but also will supply your body with an abundance of beneficial nutrients and enzymes. Young coconut kefir (also known as YCK) is not dairy based and is an ideal alternative for those who have a hard time with regular kefir due to an intolerance to casein (milk protein found in some dairy) or to dairy as a whole.
Made from the juice, or coconut water, of young, green coconuts, yck is dairy and gluten free, is low in sugar, low in calories and is fat free. It is made via the same fermentation process as regular milk kefir, except the liquid base is different and you would need to use water kefir grains instead of milk kefir grains. Also boasting a potent probiotic profile, like milk kefir, yck has the digestive enzymes and other nutrients, in addition to the minerals and hydrating benefits that you would get from consuming regular coconut water.
What are the health benefits of young coconut kefir?Ok, so now that you know what young coconut kefir is, it’s important for you to know why we promote this bubbly probiotic drink. Below is a list of why you might want to consider incorporating young coconut kefir into your daily routine.
