Kefir- any favorites?

I want to try this,but I'm wondering if anyone has a brand they really like. After getting over two bouts of a stomach virus, I've really been helped by eating yogourt. I've read that Kefir is even better. Any suggestions?

  1. Liberte has good kefir. I really like their raspberry flavoured ones--I often drink kefir instead of milk. There's an organic brand (sold at wholefoods, sweet potato etc) that's also good, but seems to just come in plain jane flavour.

      That organic brand (Pinehedge Farms) is a good option. Check it out at The Big Carrot. But if you're looking for a probiotics source to help you out, why not go the full route and check out the acidophilus capsules themselves? I would say to look at the New Roots Herbal (Ultra Plus) and Inno-Vite brands, but speak to the in-store nutritionist.
