  1. It is rich in probiotics. Water kefir is made by fermenting sugar water with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, known as a "SCOBY" or kefir culture. This fermentation process produces beneficial bacteria, such as Lactobacillus and Streptococcus, which can help to promote a healthy gut and boost the immune system.

  2. It is a natural source of vitamins and minerals. During the fermentation process, the microorganisms in water kefir convert the sugars in the water into a variety of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, vitamin K, and calcium.

  3. It can aid in digestion. The probiotics in water kefir can help to balance gut microbiome, which can lead to improved digestion.

  4. It can improve skin health. Vitamins and minerals found in water kefir can help to strengthen bones, teeth and improve skin elasticity, which can lead to a more youthful appearance.

  5. It is a delicious and refreshing alternative to sugary drinks and alcohol. Water kefir has a slightly effervescent, tangy taste and is very refreshing. It is low in calories and sugar as much of the sugar gets fermented, making it a great natural alternative to processed and sugary drinks.
