How Kefir Effects Your Energy


If you feel tired all the time, you may be experiencing low energy or fatigue, which has been found to be linked to your gut health.

What are the symptoms of low energy levels?

A symptom of fatigue is a lingering tiredness that is constant and limiting. When you feel fatigued, you have unexplained and consistent exhaustion, similar to the way you feel after you’ve had a bout of the flu.

Fatigue runs a spectrum of symptoms from feeling slightly run down, to experiencing chronic or extreme fatigue. If you have chronic fatigue, you may wake up in the morning feeling as tired as you felt the night before. You may find yourself unable to function well, at home or at work. You might even feel too wiped out to deal with your daily tasks.

What are the reasons behind low energy?

Scientists have found that the explanation for fatigue may lie in your gut. People suffering from chronic fatigue or ME have been shown to have different gut bacteria than healthy people. In 2017, researchers identified abnormal levels of specific gut bacteria in individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome and ME, including those with and without IBS.

Cornell University researchers had already established a connection between chronic fatigue and gut bacteria when they were able to correctly diagnose 83% of chronic fatigue patients through stool samples and blood work. Their work demonstrated that the gut bacterial microbiome in chronic fatigue syndrome patients is not normal. This connection may also lead to gastrointestinal and inflammatory symptoms in victims of the disease.

How can you boost your energy?

We recommend following an anti-inflammatory diet and drinking kefir. As it contains significant levels of B12, alongside trillions of live bacteria, our kefir has been shown to contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, so it’s the perfect natural solution to boost low energy.
