As for tolerating it, it’s hard to say. At first, it gave me headaches and when I ate the grains I felt like I did after an 80bn probiotic capsule. Now it doesn’t really bother me at all. I’ve eaten 3/4 cup of grains in a day with a litre of kefir. Just start small and judge your reactions.
So none of the good bacteria in kefir stays? Are you sure? You read that somewhere? Can you offer the link?
To clarify, I am not attacking your statement but am disappointed by what it states. I am taking probiotic capsule and drinking kefir daily, but if none of those bacteria stays, what’s the point? I will get rid of candida and be forced to take probiotics for the rest of my life?
