im trying to increase my probiotics intake and part of that has been trying water kefir and trying to grow the grains. last time i had it, the grains lived for a month and it did away with any issues of post meal bloating if i drank some after eating. ever since then bloating after eating hasnt really been an issue for me, unless i eat certain foods i know i dont tolerate well like dairy.
now that i have water kefir again ive been sipping a little water kefir with my meals the past 5 days or so (only 1/3 cup or a little less than that so far per meal). compared to last week maybe the benefit ive felt is how very little gas ive had (though it wasnt a lot before either). no sensations/gurgling from my stomach either. will see if this continues, it seems like a positive sign for digestion. ive tried several things in the past to improve my digestion and water kefir has been one of the quickest to give me some kind of observable improvement, as far as i can tell
