A new British brand, Little Bird Kefir, promises to make achieving a healthy gut, free of tummy aches and pains that little bit easier, by delivering high-quality kefir straight to your doorstep anywhere in the UK. What is kefir? Simply put, kefir is the best-kept secret in nutrition. This high-powered probiotic milk drink contains billions of gut-friendly bacteria in just one serving – several times more powerful than most other products touted as being good for your tummy. It’s made by fermenting milk with kefir grains, a kind of live culture (think yeast). The result is a creamy, thick beverage similar to drinking yoghurt that has been enjoyed by people across Eastern Europe, Asia and South America for thousands of years. Why should I drink it? It tastes great, especially as part of a breakfast, but that’s not the only reason kefir is gaining popularity with nutritionists and celebrities alike. The secret lies in the high concentrations of good bacteria in kefir, of many different types – it generally contains up to 14 different strains. This means it can restore the natural balance in your gut, which can have a huge benefit on your health including: Fewer tummy aches and pains Banishing bloating Strengthened immune system Clearer skin Improved mood If that sounds too good to be true, take it from scientists. They are still uncovering the huge impact that your gut – and its billions of micro-organisms – has on our everyday life. How can I try it? Previously, trying Kefir meant taking a trip to Eastern Europe, or scouring many health food shops to find a stockist. Frustrated with this inconvenient access, the founders of new brand Little Bird Kefir decided to sell it themselves – with home delivery over the internet at the click of a button. Little Bird Kefir stock only fresh, undiluted kefir without added colours, flavours or preservatives. They deliver anywhere in the UK and can be found on Tabl.com.
