Benefits for Women 

Coconut kefir and pudding cleanses the endocrine system (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, ovaries). Many women find their menstrual period becomes more clean and healthy after eating these unsalted cultured foods. If you’re prone to pms, you might find that goes away. If you’re experiencing early menopause, you may find your monthly cleansing return again. Breast-milk can become more probiotic-rich with the addition of these foods!

Digestive Issues

When the gut is inflamed or permeable (leaky gut), as is often the case with digestive issues like IBS, Crohn’s, or gluten intolerance then young green coconut kefir and pudding can help because they have anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. These foods soothe and repair the digestive lining.

Yeast Infections

Coconut kefir and pudding are alkalizing and anti-fungal in nature. They are ideal for anyone with a yeast or bacterial infection (i.e. Candida, GBS+) because they keep the gut environment in a correct pH which make pathogenic yeast, like Candida Albicans and Group B Strep bacterium die-off and give good flora an opportunity to thrive again.     

*This is my favorite kefir starter to make both the yck and pudding (recipes below). This starter contains potent strains of probiotics that have been shown to survive the long journey from mouth to gut; where they remain intact, wake up, and keep us strong and healthy in so many ways. Most probiotics get destroyed by antibiotics, fluoride, stomach acid, and chlorinated water before they even reach the gut.
