What is Water Kefir?
Water kefir is cultured by introducing a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts) into sugar water. The beneficial bacteria and yeasts present in the water kefir grains consume the sugar in the sugar water, and as they metabolize the sugar, they produce a variety of beneficial acids, food enzymes, B vitamins and more beneficial bacteria. This process of fermentation reduces the sugar content and produce a wonderful probiotic-rich beverage, called KEFIR.

How to Consume Water Kefir?
It's smart to start anything new in small amounts, kefir being no exception to that rule. For the beginner, is good to start with 4 tablespoons on the first day, and slowly increase accordingly on the following days. You may drink as much as you wish eventually, being reasonable. Ideally is around 200ml daily. Balance is key to good health.
