What is kefir, why is it one of the best dog supplements you can share and how much should a canine have?
Kefir has more strains of beneficial bacteria than just about anything else.We use coconut milk for our kefir.
Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria not commonly found in yogurt. In fact there are 30 different strains of bacteria and yeast. The bulk of those grains are a combination of insoluble protein, amino acids, lipids and complex sugars.
a great probiotic which contains 11 strains of beneficial bacteria kefir also has beneficial yeasts. If your dog has ever had yeast problems like dog yeast ear infections,you would know not to feed brewers yeast because it feeds the problem but this one is different because the yeast in kefir (such as Saccharomyces kefir and Torula kefir) will control and eliminate destructive pathogenic yeasts in the body. They do this by penetrating the mucosal lining where unhealthy yeast and bacteria reside.
This makes the body becomes more capable to resist pathogens such as E. coli. What are other benefits of kefir? It has antibiotic properties, it’s anti-fungal, relieves gas, aids allergies and just plain heals the body. We also do a coconut water kefir infused with kiwi fruit, apples, berries this is great for dogs that are allergic to dairy and don't worry about the sugar content in the process of growing kefir this enables the kefir to grow and is metabolised by the kefir grains and turned into complex furmented sugars
