Probiotic Foods

Recently I had a conversation with someone who had switched to a diet that included large amounts of homemade kefir.  Her digestive system was not happy with the change.  She was wondering why this happened as she had been drinking kefir before plus eating yogurt.

My first response was to question why she had started making kefir and why she was taking so much of it. Her response was that she thought it was healthy for her.

She’s right that kefir and yogurt can be beneficial foods however
