Kefir vs Yogurt



Both kefir and yogurt are cultured milk products, but they contain different types of beneficial bacteria. Yogurt contains transient beneficial bacteria that keep the digestive system clean, but kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract.
Kefir contains several major strains of friendly bacteria not commonly found in yogurt: Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc, Lactococcus, Acetobacter, and Streptococcus species. It also contains beneficial yeasts, such as Saccharomyces, Kluyveromyces and Torula species, which control and eliminate destructive pathogenic microorganisms in the body. Kefir's active yeast and bacteria provide more nutritive value than yogurt by helping digest the foods that you eat and by keeping the colon environment clean and healthy.

Kefir contains a little amount (less than 0.5%) of alcohol and carbon dioxide. These create the unique taste and flavor of kefir different from those of yogurt.

The outstanding advantage of kefir over yogurt is that kefir contains the polysaccharide called kefiran which shows anti-inflammatory effect and anti-tumor properties.

Kefir not only prevents the diseases of digestive organs while harmonizing circulatory organs, but also helps clean skin and maintain its elasticity if applied to skin. With a very little effort, kefir can be used at home in a form of soap or cream.  

In addition, since the curd size of kefir is smaller than yogurt, it is also easier to digest, which makes it a particularly excellent, nutritious food for babies, invalids and the elderly, as well as a remedy for digestive disorders.
