Body Ecology - Kefir Starter Kit - (6 packets) in each box
Body Ecology - Kefir is available now in 6 easy to use and ready to use packets from Nourishing Ecology!
Kefir has many benefits including better digestion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, and has been known for thousands of years for its anti-aging and immune enhancing properties.
Kefir is an ancient cultured food rich in amino acids, enzymes, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish, and that's just how you'll feel after drinking a glass in the morning!
Easy and fun to make at home, it is superior to commercial yogurt. An absolute must after antibiotic use!
Unlike yogurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract and is simple and fun to make at home.

- Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris

Kefir is traditionally made with cow's milk but can be made with soy, coconut, rice, goat, or sheep milk (other varieties of milk yield a more watery kefir than cow's milk).
Kefir is a wonderful addition to smoothies!
Donna Gates, founder of Body Ecology, recommends adding kefir starter to the liquid found inside the young, green coconut.
This is what people have to say about Coconut Water Kefir:
- It completely stops your craving for sugar. Imagine the benefits!
- It aids digestion of all foods.
- It has a tonicifying affect on the intestines, even flattening the abdomen!
- It appears to cleanse the liver. In Chinese medicine, the liver rules the skin, eyes, and joints. Coconut water kefir eases aches and joint pains. Many people report having a prettier complexion. They experience the brown liver spots on the skin fading away and skin tags, moles or warts drying up and disappearing. Vision also improves.
- It contains high levels of valuable minerals, including potassium, natural sodium, calcium, and magnesium, which explains why the hair, skin, and nails become stronger and have a prettier shine.
- It appears to have a beneficial, cleansing effect on the endocrine system (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, ovaries). Women find their periods are cleaner and healthier, some who have experienced early menopause have found this important monthly cleansing returning again.
- It increases energy and gives you an overall feeling of good health.
To find young, green coconuts, speak to your local fruit and vegetable shop. They can get the coconuts from the wholesale markets and they normally come in a box of 9-12 coconuts.
Ways to Enjoy Coconut Water Kefir
- Take a half of a cup of coconut water kefir with meals to greatly help digestion.
- Also, a half of a cup at bedtime with helping establish a healthy inner ecosystem. Studies from Europe show that when you are lying still during sleep, the microflora reproduces faster.
- In the morning, combine a half cup of the young coconut water with unsweetened cranberry or black currant juice, as a great wake up tonic.
Note: If you are lactose intolerant because you do not have dairy loving microflora thriving in your inner ecosystem, begin adding them by drinking the coconut water kefir.
Please either refrigerate or put in the freezer to prolong the life of your Kefir.
