Blue-Green Water Kefir

Spirulina Water KefirSuper Thirst Quencher!


There’s a bunch of different ways to flavor Water Kefir and one of my favorites is flavoring with Spirulina!

The Spirulina not only adds color but also add to the health benefits this drink has to offer!

Animal and test tube studies suggest that Spirulina increases the number of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, and other cells that help with building the immune system by warding off infection and chronic illnesses, such as cancer.  Amino Acids is the body’s building blocks and 62% of Spirulina total make up is Amino acids. Spirulina even proved to protect against allergic reactions by stopping the release of histamines (the chemical that causes many allergy symptoms).

My friend, Mike, thinks it’s the best thing to drink on a hot summers day! He says it’s a Super Thirst Quencher! Quench your thirst while taking care of your health and wellbeing, why not!?
