One of the top benefits of using Natural Probiotic Selection Kefir Starter is no babysitting grains as that can get tiresome and a key benefit is always ensuring a consistent batch free of unwanted contaminants or spoilage organisms which can happen when grains are used for extended periods. While grains do offer more microbes and greater diversity, commercial cultures offer the benefit of clinically studied and well tolerated in the majority cultures that are easily cultured batch after batch, even at home, even for beginners.
Another great benefit is how fail proof this process is. From the first batch and with each re-culture it is nearly impossible not to produce a thick, creamy and delicious kefir with no expensive and unnecessary equipment. You can easily produce kefir at home that ensures health and immune benefits and this product does offer both with trillions of beneficial organisms and friendly yeasts, especially the important LABS.
Finally one of the greatest benefits is cost. Store bought kefir can get expensive, while adding to consumer waste with unwanted plastic containers. You can make a year’s worth of kefir for pennies as compared to store bought brands and store it in glass containers that offer greater sanitation and are easily reused.
Natural Probiotic Selection offers fine products with tremendous health benefits that can be experienced in a very short time and it is worthwhile to experiment with different kefir cultures with virtually no intolerance issues to create necessary microbial diversity that eventually occurs in the healthy, adult microbiota.

Oral immune therapy is an attractive clinical approach to treat autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. It can induce immune modulation without immune suppression, has minimal toxicity and is easily administered. Targeting the systemic immune system via the gut immune system can serve as an attractive novel therapeutic method for IBD. Currently available treatments for IBD, which target the systemic immune system, induce immunosuppression, thereby exposing the patient to the risk of infections and malignancy. Oral immune therapy has several clinical advantages. In most cases, the compounds used for oral immune therapy do not reach the blood, making this method nontoxic and with minimal side effects. It is not associated with the harmful cytokine release syndrome that is noted for some of the intravenously administered immunomodulatory agents. Oral immune therapy is effective both for preventive therapy and for treatment at the peak of disease. In most cases, as no systemic absorption is required, a relatively low dose is sufficient for a clinically meaningful effect. Oral immune therapy provides a platform that can be used for many disorders. For the patients, it is easily tolerated, and eliminates safety concerns and pain related to needles. Trained medical personnel are not required to administer these drugs, and they are inexpensive. Cancer is a major health problem in many parts of the world. Conventional anticancer treatments are painful, expensive, and unsafe. Therefore, demand is increasing for cancer treatments preferentially in the form of functional foods or nutritional supplements. Kefir, a traditional fermented milk dairy product, has significant antimutagenic and antitumor properties. This research addresses the hypothesis that kefir’s anticancer properties are affected by fermentation conditions. Initially, kefir extracts prepared under standard conditions were screened against 7 cancer cell lines using the tetrazolium dye 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide colorimetric assay. Colon cancer and chronic myelogenous leukemia cells were found to be most susceptible to kefir extracts. Subsequently, a factorial design was implemented to assess the effects of 3 fermentation times (24, 48, and 72 h), 3 kefir-to-milk ratios (2, 5, and 10% wt/vol), and 3 fermentation temperatures (4, 25, and 40°C) on kefir’s anticancer properties. Remarkably, exploration of the fermentation conditions allowed the anticancer properties of kefir to be enhanced by 5- to 8-fold against susceptible cell lines. Overall, these results demonstrate the possibility of optimizing the anticancer properties of kefir as a functional food in cancer therapy.
Lactose is composed of glucose and galactose, two simpler sugars used as energy directly by our body. Lactase, an enzyme, splits lactose into glucose and galactose. … Galactose has various biological functions and serves in neural and immunological processes. Lactose is the main source of energy supplied to the newborn mammalian in its mother’s milk. Because of its lower sweeting power, lactose is unable to induce a reaction as does dextrose. Lactose does not lead to release of mediators such as endorphins or dopamine and is free of reward effects.
Alpha-lactalbumin is a protein found in Whey and milk in general (including breast milk), it binds to oleic acid to form HAMLET, (human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells) but does not harm normal cells. Complexes between α-LA (Alpha-lactalbumin) and OA (oleic acid) were reported to be the most active causing 100% cell death. It has been possible to make a complex between bovine α-LA (Alpha-lactalbumin) and OA (oleic acid) called BAMLET (bovine alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells).
4-2018..The gut environment and gut microbiome dysbiosis have been demonstrated to significantly influence a range of disorders in humans, including obesity, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis (MS). Recent studies on MS and its animal model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), have found that gastrointestinal microbiota may play an important role in the pathogenesis of MS/EAE. Thus, gut microbiome adjustment may be a future direction of treatment in MS.
