Let’s talk about what kefir is and how it can help you start sleeping better. This is an updated version of a video I did on this topic, with additional tips for better sleep using kefir.

Kefir is a fermented drink. There are about five times the beneficial microbes in kefir than in yogurt. Kefir has a combination of friendly bacteria and yeast—it even has friendly candida.

There are definitely benefits to consuming yogurt, but kefir may be even more beneficial—especially to help you sleep at night.

The microbes in kefir can survive the stomach acid, but the microbes in yogurt can’t. Kefir is a probiotic that helps provide the precursor to melatonin and helps lower cortisol.

A certain strain of microbe that’s in kefir helps increase oxygen and blood flow in the body, which helps you get better sleep. The microbes in kefir also make vitamin B1, an essential vitamin for reducing stress and anxiety. Vitamin B1 also helps support the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes rest and healthy digestion.

Kefir helps you absorb certain minerals like calcium and magnesium. These two minerals are wonderful to support sleep. Kefir may also be easier to digest for people with sensitivities to milk.

Other potential health benefits of kefir include:
• Helping with allergies or asthma
• Balancing cholesterol
• Reducing bloating or constipation
• Supporting the immune system

Tips for using kefir to sleep better through the night:
1. If you’re doing intermittent fasting, consume kefir at the end of your last meal rather than right before bed.
2. Consume sheep or goat milk kefir if possible.
3. Buy raw milk kefir if possible, or consider making your own kefir from raw milk.
4. Get plain whole milk kefir—not low-fat kefir.
