Move over, Greek yogurt — we’ve got a new favorite in the dairy aisle! Kefir is a close relative of yogurt, but it tends to have a tangier taste and thinner texture. And while it’s a great source of nutrients — like most dairy products, it supplies lots of high-quality protein, vitamin D and calcium — its probiotic content sets it apart from most other dairy. Lactobacillus acidophilus, one of the most abundant beneficial microbes in kefir, might help replace “friendly” microbes in your digestive system, as well as help banish harmful bugs that cause stomach upset and digestive issues.
