Kefir is believed to be more nutritious and therapeutic than yogurt, supplying complete protein, essential minerals and valuable B vitamins. The belief is that probiotic bacteria in kefir partially digest many milk proteins, making it more easily utilized by the body than other dairy products. At this time, high-quality human trials supporting the use of kefir for any indication are lacking. Better-designed clinical trials are needed before conclusions may be made regarding taking this product for any health condition.
