Founded by an individual with a dream to heal people through food medicine.
. The foundation of this company is built upon the belief that the earth can provide the medicine we need to defend our bodies against disease and illness. Living during the 21st century, people are always on the go and barely have any free time to focus on their overall health. Living in modern western society , we have become so disconnected from the natural diet of our ancestors that our bodies and health began to change. With recent rises in heart disease, cancer, and diabetes due to low immune health, consumption of genetically modified foods, the increase in food allergens especially dairy , our bodies are in dire need of support. We need help to keep our bodies healthy and strong in order to ward off disease.
WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL
- DAIRY FREE: All of our kefir's are vegetable or fruit based.NO DAIRY. Traditionally kefir is made through fermenting dairy milk. Approximately 2.5- 4.5 percent of children younger than three years of age are allergic to milk.Approximately 60% of adults cannot digest milk. About 75% of the population is lactose intolerant.Milk harms your digestive system and immune system over time as you continue to consume it.
- WE'RE VEGAN/VEGETARIAN: Our fruit or vegetable based products are rich in iron, calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. The fruit and vegetable based foods tend to be low in saturated fat, high in fiber and packed with antioxidants, helping mitigate some of the modern world's biggest health issues like heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
- BETTER THEN YOGURT AND KOMBUCHA: Our vegan kefirs are pure natural sources of beneficial bacteria. They are loaded with trillions 50+ strains of thiving live probiotics which far surpass the benefits of yogurt and probiotic capsules ( which are made from extracting bacteria from dairy products) alike. Also water kefir contains a greater number of bacteria strains than those found in kombucha. And contains no caffine unlike kombucha.
- NO ADDED JUICE OR SUGAR: Our kefir culture’s use of the sugar means that there isn’t much sugar left in the final product. This is good news for those with Metabolic Syndrome in that water kefir doesn’t add to problems with blood sugar fluctuations or feed those sugar cravings No added juice or sugars for flavor. What ever natural sugars the particular fruit or vegetable has is what the live bacteria feed on.
- HAND MADE & LOCAL: Each batch is delicate which is why they are hand made in the west la area. In every bottle we are dealing with live organisms and we want to refrain from damaging any of those beneficial organisms by using big metal commercial machines that will destroy they integrity around and ruin their cell wall.
- SMALL BATCHES: Each batch is made by the recipe in order to keep the integrity of the formula and the amount of beneficial bacteria. And each batch is also numbered with it own unique batch code and recorded so we know exactly when your kefir was made.
- CHARITABLE: A percentage of each bottle sold is set aside for an outreach program geared toward people of Haiti and Dominican Republic. The charity aids in sustainable agriculture for the production of food, medicinal herbs, animals, and jobs for the impoverished people of the Island of Hispaniola.
- WE USE ONLY GLASS BOTTLES: We do not let our kefir come in contact with metal since metal damages kefir and kefir grains harshly react to metal. We also steer clear of plastic as it can release toxins and chemicals into the kefir due to higher temperatures during the fermentation process. Therefore, we ferment and bottle our vegan kefir in nothing but glass bottles.. Plastic and metal should never be used when dealing with kefir.
- HIGH QUALITY FARMER'S MARKET GRADE: You can taste the freshness and the essence of nature in all our vegan kefirs. You get the great farm fresh taste of fresh pressed organic fruits and vegetables while preserving all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants of the product..
