Plus, if the kefir isn’t fermented sufficiently, the result could be the same as drinking lots of milk on a daily basis, which as we know could lead to higher cholesterol numbers.
I think I remember a while back that you were using commercial grade kefir, have you changed over to homemade? If not, it seems this could possibly be at least part of the problem.
Since some time, I am not drinking any kind of Kefir but only commercial Greek yogurt. What is affecting more of all is the coconut oil that looks like it rises the LDL cholesterol. I didn’t want to stop it.
