Probiotics are good bacteria, similar to the bacteria already in your body. Your lower digestive tract teems with a complex and diverse community of these bacteria.

Milk kefir is a potent source of three integral nutrients: calcium, magnesium and vitamin K. Working together, these vitamins and minerals are a good way to make sure your bones are healthy and strong. Calcium is important to bone density and strength. However, an increase in calcium alone is not always enough to ensure a large increase in bone mass density. Magnesium, along with calcium, helps maintain bone integrity. And vitamin K helps calcium transport and absorb into the bones.
