Water Kefir -A Homemade Probiotic Soda

Water Kefir is a homemade Probiotic drink that is quick to assemble, takes only 24-48 hours for the first ferment and after a 2nd ferment period (optional) it becomes a carbonated health drink that can help you to curb those sweet cravings! Water Kefir is a simply amazing alternative to sodas, it works well for those on a restricted "dairy" diet  whether from lactose intolerance or those of us that suffer from High Cholesterol & it is good for your digestive tract much like yogurt is. Kefir consists of lactic acid bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. A great microflora combination with the benefits that are similar to those of milk kefir (dairy kefir) but the average person will be able to consume larger amounts of it due to its water base.
