"Back in 1908, immunologist Ilya Mechnykov noted that fermented foods such as sour milk, kefir, and fermented vegetables affect health and longevity, and suggested that the lactic acid bacteria contained in them inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms in the intestines," says the expert.

Fus noted that if you compare kefir with other dairy products, it contains very little lactose, as most of it is converted into lactic and pyruvic acid by the kefir fungus.
