July 19, 2009 - PRLog -- It is no secret that eating yogurt is a great way to a healthy lifestyle. But according to author and website owner Giselle Parker, eating yogurt isn't the only way and it's definitely not the best way to living a healthy life. Eating or drinking Kefir, on the other hand, is.

Parker, 35, was actually an avid yogurt drinker, that is before she discovered Kefir from one of her friends just a few years ago. Ever since then she has made it a point to make and drink Kefir every single day. "The first time I drank Kefir, I was taken back by how tangy and refreshing it was" Parker recalls.

Kefir, like yogurt, is full of probiotic goodness. It is a refreshing beverage made from fermenting kefir grains in milk. These Kefir grains are little cauliflower-like grains that are the source of Kefir's probiotic goodness as it is filled with beneficial bacteria and yeasts mixed in proteins, lipids and sugars. To get the most out of Kefir, it is recommened you make your own Kefir with real live kefir grains. Explains Parker, "there are Kefir starters and Kefir powders, but to get the most nourishment there's nothing like using live kefir grains and since kefir grains lasts forever and will continue to grow as long you take care of them you only need to get one batch of kefir grains for all your kefir needs."

Scientific research has shown promises that regular drinking of Kefir leads to numerous health benefits. Health benefits that you can't get from drinking yogurt. Some of the reported health benefits of Kefir are:

- Regulating cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar
- Cleaning the digestive tract and regulates metabolism and digestion
