Don't drink soda! Try this! A fizzy drink that is rich in micro-nutrients, enzymes and beneficial bacteria, water kefir numbers among the top ten dairy-free probiotics. Kefir grains are small, translucent, gelatinous structures and are comprised of assorted bacteria including lactobacillus hilgardii which gives them their characteristic crystal-like appearance. When properly cared for and regularly cultured, they produce a wonderful delicious probiotic-rich beverage and will continue to grow and reproduce indefinitely.Water kefir can be found http://www.culturesforhealth.com/starter-cultures/kefir-cultures.html
