This is a 21-day course, consisting of four 900 ml bottles. We recommend that you consume 170 ml minimum every day, first thing in the morning before food.

Our kefir is pure and free from any flavourings or additives. It has a naturally tart taste and fizzy texture.

RAW MILK KEFIR: Most of our kefir is made with pasteurised milk. However we do occasionally make batches of kefir with raw milk, for our clients who are raw milk fans. This is a limited-availability product, and cannot be added to a subscription, as we cannot guarantee a delivery date. If you would like to order raw milk kefir, please phone us on 01239 654 072.We will take your order by phone, and place your order in the raw kefir queue. When we have accumulated enough orders, we will make a vat of raw kefir. Please do not order this product if your order is time-sensitive, or you are not happy to wait for the product.

PLEASE NOTE: Warfarin and kefir are not a good combination, as kefir is very high in Vitamin K, which de-stabilises the warfarin. However we have recently been informed that a recent generation of blood thinner called Edoxaban may not be antagonistic to Vitamin K, and therefore can be used while taking kefir. This is a conversation that you should have with your GP.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not recommend taking kefir and immunosuppressants at the same time. This is a serious decision that you will need to make in cooperation with your GP.

 

What Is Kefir?

Kefir is a fermented milk product that originated in the Black Caucasus Mountains of Russia. Kefir is now a billion euro industry in Russia and Eastern Europe but has only recently become widely available in the UK.

Kefir is a tart, fizzy beverage similar to drinking yoghurt in texture and consistency, Kefir has “non-transient” bacteria that survive the digestive process and powerfully impact the gut microbiome.

Our kefir is a live product and will not go “off,” but will simply continue to ferment, getting stronger over time. We recommend that you consume 170 ml every day, first thing in the morning before food.

To support the action of the kefir. we suggest that you avoid sugar, cow dairy and high-GI processed foods, and add good fats to your diet during this time. For more dietary suggestions, see our blog kefirise.com. You can also find more information in our video or our #1 best selling book The Good Skin Solution.

 

How kefir can help you?

Inside your gut sits 2 kg of bacteria called the microbiome. Imagine your microbiome like the Amazon rain forest, full of lovely little life forms. This tiny inner ecosystem consists of trillions of friendly bugs, whose job is YOU! These little critters work hard every day inside you. They break down the food you eat, turning it into building blocks for bones, skin, muscle, organs. But like any ecosystem, this fragile natural ecosystem is vulnerable to damage. The things that damage your microbiome are antibiotics, sugar, stress, and environmental toxins. We call this “dysbiosis.”

Your skin is really just a map of your gut – and disorders like eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea are all autoimmune disorders, that sit in the gut.

So you’re going to have to heal your gut, to heal your skin!

Kefir contains multiple strains of live friendly bacteria that replenish and restore your microbiome. The Good Skin Solution means drinking kefir and applying kefir skincare at the same time. This regime helps your gut biome and your skin biome – and gets great results!

How should you take your kefir?

We suggest that you drink 170 ml of kefir first thing in the morning before food. The idea here is that you’re giving those nice friendly bacteria a clear run at your gut, so they can settle in. It’s okay to drink tea or water with lemon first; just don’t have food.

Does kefir taste good? Not so much! Kefir is not a milkshake, but a medical food. It’s tart and fizzy. We make it completely free of sweeteners or flavourings, which decrease the power of the microbiotics.

Some of our clients find that they end up really craving the sharp, fizzy taste of the kefir on its own. If you’re struggling with the taste, try blending it up with a banana and sweeten with stevia to taste. If you flavour the kefir this way, please drink it immediately and do not let it sit overnight, as the fructose in the fruit will damage the microbiotics over time.

Stevia is the only sweetener I recommend using with kefir. Stevia is natural, comes from a plant, is zero calorie and is safe for diabetics. Most important, it does not damage your microbiome. In fact, stevia is not really a sweetener at all – it just stimulates the sweet sensors on your tongue. So you experience sweetness – with none of the downsides!

I do not recommend maple syrup, agave, or honey to mix with kefir. Maple syrup and agave are high GI, which disrupts your microbiome. Honey is a natural antibiotic, which interferes with the good microbiotics in the kefir.

What makes our kefir so special?

We make Chuckling Goat kefir in the traditional Russian style, by fermenting pasteurised goats milk with live kefir grains. This ensures that our kefir is very powerful, safe, and contains only the beneficial strains from the kefir grains themselves. Although the milk base is pasteurised, the kefir itself is a live product. Our kefir is safe for pregnant women, infants and elderly people with compromised immune systems.

Dairy products boost the power of microbiotics, which is why we choose milk for the base of our kefir. Scientists have found that goats milk is more beneficial to human health than cows milk. So that’s why we use goats milk! ; )

Kefir is far more powerful than a dried microbiotic. Kefir contains many different strains of live bacteria, thriving in their own environment. If you have been taking a powdered or pill-based microbiotic, you may stop; you will no longer need it.

Our kefir is made from pasteurised goats milk, so can be consumed safely by pregnant women, children and elderly people with compromised immune systems.

Our kefir has been tested and found to be effective by Aberystwyth University. It contains (among others) the following strains of friendly bacteria:

  • Lactobacillus kefiranofaciens
  • Lactobacillus kefiri
  • Lactococcus lactis
  • Leuconostoc garlicum
  • Leuconostoc lactis
  • Prevotella
  • Enterococcus faecium

How to open your kefir

Our kefir is super-strong, live and active. This is what makes it so medically potent – but it’s also what makes it so difficult to physically hold in a bottle.

Our current bottles do (usually! ; ) manage to contain the fermentation gases completely during transit. But this means that the fermentation gases are ready and waiting to burst out of the bottle when you open it.

Now at this point, big commercial companies might just add a drop of chlorine bleach to the kefir, to kill the fermentation and render the kefir inert….

But The Goats aren’t happy with that idea, and we’re not going to do that. We believe that the kefir needs to stay live, powerful and potent, for maximum impact on your health.

So it becomes a matter of care and management, to get your kefir safely out of the bottle and into your system.

Here’s what we suggest:

  1. When you receive your kefir, put it straight into the fridge and allow to settle for 3-4 hours. Although kefir will not go “off” at room temperature, it will continue to ferment – and this may make the opening process more explosive. Store it in the fridge for the duration of your course. Keeping it cool will slow the fermentation process.
  2. When you’re ready to open your kefir, rinse the outside of the kefir bottle and dry it.
  3. Place a large bowl in the sink, and put the bottle in the bowl.
  4. Have a cup ready to hand.
  5. Pointing away from eyes at all times, carefully ease the lid open until the gas and kefir begins to escape. The kefir will run down the sides of the (now-clean) bottle into the bowl. Wait till the flow slows, and then ease the cap open a bit more.Repeat this step until the flow has stopped and the lid is off.
  6. If the kefir begins to spit out horizontally, pop the cup upside-down on top of the lid. This will contain the escaping kefir and force it to flow downwards, towards the bowl.
  7. You may use the escaped kefir as needed for your first dose or put it back into the bottle.
  8. Replace the lid, and put it back into the fridge.

Once the initial load of fermentation gas has escaped, you should be fine. But continue to open the bottle with care, each and every time! Remember that your kefir continues to ferment inside the bottle.

Note: If your kefir is not explosive, don’t worry – there’s nothing wrong with it. Because kefir is a natural product, there is a wide variation in the taste, fizziness and consistency from batch to batch. What remains constant is the beneficial bacterial load – which is the important bit! ; )

    i started to take Kefir, as it came recommended from a friend. Having suffered from heartburn, acid reflux and acne all my life, I really wanted it to give me a kick start into a new lifestyle and healthy eating. i was fed up of ‘fad’ dieting, dropping weight then putting it all back on, calorie counting and attended the likes of weight watchers, slimming world – none of which worked for me – it was unsustainable, so i kept reverting back to my old ways of scoffing food as and when.
    it has kick started us into a new lifestyle, that now i would never go back to.
    Thanks you to Shann and the team for putting up with my emails, and more importantly introducing me to a new way of life.

    I have had patches of eczema all my life and was actually born with some on my forehead. It’s not ruined my life, but has been a source of irritation for decades to varying degrees, and three years ago was involved in an allergic reaction which became quite dangerous. I read Shann’s book, ‘The Good Skin Solution’ after seeing it reviewed in the paper, and it’s no exaggeration to say that there has been a total transformation in the condition of my skin. So far I’ve had two 21 day courses of Kefir and am intending to at least have four per year. From the advice in the book I have switched all dairy to exclusively goat, i.e. butter, cheese, milk and yoghurt. And the eczema has gone, after decades. I note what Shann says about getting into green spaces, especially forested, where plants are producing phytoncides and am going to step that up. The only thing I haven’t done yet is to get down to a farm and pet some goats, but I fully intend to, because thanks to Shann the cuts that often appeared my fingers are not there any more so I won’t be worried if I pet a mucky goat!
    The Kefir is unusual but when you get used to it I find it quite delicious and refreshing, especially first thing in the morning.
    And if you haven’t read the book, everything in it is set out clearly with brilliant explanations, even of the complex human immune system. This farm must be benefiting a lot of people if my experience and others on this site is anything to go by and I for one wish them every success and long may it continue.

    • (verified owner)

      Wow Peter – thanks for this! Goats and humans are thrilled to hear that you’ve had such a brilliant result. Keep taking those forest walks and come and visit us on the farm – goats would be honoured to be petted!
      Hugs from the barn,
      Shann + the Goats

    I’ve had one 21 day course of kefir and looking forward to receiving my next one. I have a patch of eczema, skin prone to spots, dry scalp and slight acid reflux I’m hoping kefir might help to improve! Although I haven’t noticed any major changes yet, I have to say I look forward to drinking this every morning and actually like the taste! It just tastes like a fizzy yogurt to me….don’t be scared of it!

      Hi Dimple – Thanks for the good words – the kefir should really help with your eczema, spot and acid reflux, as those are all signs of microbiome damage. Keep going – as I’m sure you know, you don’t really look for strong results before 9 weeks. Glad you’re enjoying your kefir! ; ) Best, Shann

    Hi there, on day 11 of kefir and it is certainly getting easier to drink. I don’t think I have had any side effects other than intense bubbling and fizzing in my stomach on the first day. Pretty sure it’s helped my gut heal after a nasty virus. Think i need to double my order next month because my husband wants to try it now. Just wondering about the alcohol content of kefir? Has it been measured?

      Hi Nindi – Glad the kefir has helped! Our kefir has been cultured for 48 hours and contains between .08% to .1% alcohol. Best, Shann

    I have various autoimmune issues. We never used contraception from the age of 22 but my health issues were stopping me from conceiving. I took a course of kefir in march/ april 2015 and fell pregnant in May 2015. I was 28. After 6 years we were finally blessed and i am absolutely convinced the kefir did this (nothing else had changed). We now have a happy healthy one yr old and i am prepring to take another course in the hope of baby number 2. It can’t hurt! Thankyou so much.

      Hi Emma – Great news – I’m so glad that you feel the kefir has helped you to conceive! Kefir is safe to take during pregnancy, and drinking kefir before, during and after pregnancy is the very best thing you can do for your baby, as baby gets his microbiome from mum. Science shows that taking kefir during pregnancy decreases baby’s chance of being born with eczema by nearly half, more info here: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/07/100720101351.htm.

    As cows milk is the most mucus producing substance on the planet, goats milk Kefir instead of cows milk Kefir is a highly recommended replacement. It would be nice if Chuckling Goat also ventured into the business of producing goats butter which is hard to come by in the supermarkets. M&S sell it in tiny, expensive, 124gm packets. So how about it Chuckling Goat?

    • (verified owner)

      Hi – You’re right, cow’s milk is the most mucus-producing substance on the planet! Which is why we make our kefir with goats milk. Will not be making butter hnowever – it takes a lot of milk to make a tiny bit of butter, and we haven’t got enough to spare, as it’s all in high demand for the kefir! ; ) Best, Shann

    Hi!
    May i ask – i have been on.the kefir for 34 days. I have read that vit k2 is good for broken capperlies/vessels. Not sure if its a placebo but i see mine dissapating. Could there be a link with the kefir at all or am i wishful thinking.. thanks!

    • (verified owner)

      Hi Marie – No, you’re not imagining things – the kefir is great for broken capillaries and blood vessels. Kefir is very high in Vitamin K. The “vitamin K cycle,” in the body is known to regulate the coagulation of blood – clotting. It’s also suspected of helping keep calcium out of the body’s vessels and in its bones, which has particular ramifications for postmenopausal women for whom loss of bone density is a nagging issue. So kefir helps with all these things. Keep going – you’ll see even better results over time! Best, Shann

    Hi I just wanted to say I have suffered with esophageal candida for over a year, medication was useless and I also developed acid reflux and lost weight because there was little I could eat that didn’t affect me. I ordered your kefir milk and just had faith that this was the answer. After three weeks of drinking this I now don’t suffer with these problems and I have so much energy, I feel amazing. Thank you so much .

      Absolutely brilliant news Wendy, the goats are so pleased that the kefir is working so beautifully for your candida and acid reflux! Three weeks is a very quick result – usually we say at least nine weeks before you look to see results that strong.

    My teenage son has been suffering with acne for around the last 2 years and he’s tried every product going culminating in a prescribed antibiotic cream from the drs which made is skin raw, inflamed and itchy (it was the worst thing he’s used). My friend recommended your kefir products as it miraculously cured her psoriasis so thought we’d give it a go. The difference has been amazing! Along with the kefir milk every morning (which he initially gagged at but eventually got to like!) he’s been using the break out skin bar and lotion. His skin is smoother, the spots have subsided and now the old scars just need healing. I’ve just ordered another batch of milk to give his immune system another boost (especially as we all had the dreaded norovirus over Christmas) and he can’t wait for it to arrive. Would highly recommend it for acne sufferers – thank you!

    • (verified owner)

      Hi Lara – So pleased that the kefir and Break-Out Kefir Cleanser and Lotion have worked so well for your son’s acne! Tell him to keep up the good work – if he’s has such great initial results, he should be looking really good by the end of 9 weeks, which is the recommended period to start to see serious results. He should continue to use the Break-Out Lotion even after his skin is clear, as it helps with scarring, and the thyme essential oil in it kills acne bacteria and prevents re-current infection.

    I suffer from Tinea versicolor which is so difficult to handle at times especially when it itches and spreads all over my body. The yeast infections goes out of control and I’ve found it so hard to keep it in control. However since I’ve discovered kefir and ordered a 21 day course and stayed healthy, I must say, the infection has left me for now. I pray it leaves me for good. Funny how I can’t get enough of kefir. I consume about 250ml a day just too boost up my body with good bacteria.
    Thank you
    P.s: the kefir to me taste like Jack Daniels lol love it😂😬

      Hi Fatima – So pleased that the kefir is helping with the tinea versicolor! As I’m sure you’re aware, this is a fungal infection of the skin caused by yeast over-growth. It is an auto-immune condition, and kefir is terrific for re-balancing yeasts and bacteria, and boosting your immune system, so I’m pleased but not surprised that you’ve had such a great result. Good luck and keep us posted! (ps – Must admit I’ve never heard it compared to Jack Daniels, but glad you’re enjoying it! ; ) Best, Shann

    My rating is for Kefir I had drink in Baltic countries and Russia . I surprised you advising customers to drink only 170 ml a day ! That is not a medicine …That is too small amount.
    We always drink one glass on morning and one glass at night ( before bed ) That is 500ml in 24 h.
    Your 7 small bottles will be enough just for one week course – to feel happy and stay healthy !

      Hi Saule –
      Very interesting to hear that in Russia you drink 500 ml in 24 hours. We learned to make our kefir from a Russian doctor, which is why we leave it pure and unflavoured, and make it with real grains. I must admit that I drink larger amounts myself on the farm… good to know! We admire the Baltic countried for their knowledge of these things. You’re right, it has only recently come to the UK, and we’re loving the benefits!

    I’m in my first week of kefir which I ordered after coming across the book on Amazon. I’ve suffered from IBS for years as well as depression so I’m hoping this works well for me, I’m fed up as tried so many other things, none of which worked. Your kefir has such fantastic reviews. Acquired taste but not too bad really, think my IBS has already calmed down a lot, including bloating, which drove me crazy. I was wondering can I still take multivitamins when taking kefir, or will this counteract the effect. Also I normally have blueberry so or raspberries with activia yoghurt , is this also something I should remove due to being dairy product. I will order a second batch soon so I don’t run out will this take longer coming up to xmas. Thanks so much.

    • (verified owner)

      Hi Margaret – Glad the kefir is already helping with your IBS! You should see great results at the end of 9 weeks. It’s fine to take multivitamins. I wouldn’t take the activia – there’s no need, as kefir has stronger probiotics, and activia is made with cows milk, which is allergenic. Bleuberries and raspberries are great, just toss them into your kefir and make a smoothie. Good luck and keep us posted – Best, Shann

    Just a little message to say thank you for the recent order of kefir. I found that after the third day it’s taste is quite pleasant and love the info leaflets you get with the order! I’m taking it to help with general immune health as I work in a hospital and find that twice a year I get really bad viruses. Although I have picked one up recently I seem to have bounced back within 2 days instead of two weeks plus, with no time off work!! Many thanks for the option to have raw milk also😊

      Goats say you’re welcome, Laura, so glad the kefir has boosted your immune system and helped you fight off your seasonal virus so much more quickly! As you’re working in the hospital, thought you might be interested in the science that shows why the kefir is so effective at preventing further infection. (See link below). Turns out that putting good bacteria in the gut, as kefir does, keeps the immune system primed to more effectively fight infection from invading pathogenic bacteria – a bit like keeping a car ticking over. Also glad to hear you’re enjoying our new offering of raw kefir – if you’re a raw milk fan, we know that nothing else will do, and we aim to please!

    I am just coming to the end of my first 21 day supply of kefir and am amazed at the changes I have experienced. I started off squeezing into a size 16(not overly large I know), carrying a fair amount of the weight on my abdomen and stomach, getting easily out of breath and generally feeling lethargic and sluggish. By the end of the first week I had noticed positive changes – clothes were slightly looser, sleeping better- and now I feel like a different person. I have so much more energy – no more feeling breathless just carrying the laundry upstairs, my clothes are looser, and I think a lot more about my general eating habits. One unexpected outcome is the positive impact on my mental wellbeing. I thought I was a generally optimistic person but since drinking kefir I feel as if I am a high dose of happy pills – apparently kefir can help balance your hormones.
    My husband is experiencing some digestive problems so I have introduced him to kefir and we will both continue to enjoy it as part of our daily diet.
    A brilliant product which I am recommending to friends and family – in fact my aunt has just started her first 21 day course.
    Thanks again for a brilliant and potentially life changing product.

    I have just realised that I have been having your kefir for my breakfast nearly every day for a year now, since I heard you on Steve Wright. It is a sad start on the days between finishing my last bottle and waiting for the new ones to arrive. It has become my preferred breakfast, with banana, berries, dash of coconut water, oatmeal, chia seeds, beetroot & turmeric. It is my go to drink before running.

      Hi Margaret – So glad that the kefir is working so well for you! I too drink it every day – depending on what kind of day it’s likely to be, sometimes I have two! (ssshhhh… ; ) Best, Shann

    I have just finished my first 21 day kefir, I have endometriosis and it has really helped me. I have slept better, have had so much more energy, no acid reflux and feel better in general. I will definitely be ordering again and recommending to my friends and family.

    I’m on my second round of the kefir and the first time round it worked wonders for my acid reflux and general gut discomfort. Bloating was all but eliminated. This time round after finishing my 2nd course, my acid reflux is back under control but bizarrely my bloating is ten times worse, which I don’t understand as it worked so well last year! I’m not put off at all as it worked so well the first time, but just not sure why it wasn’t such a fab cure this time round. Sad face…will try again in the near future!

      Hi Rach – My guess here is that you’ve suffered some additional microbiome damage in the intervening year. Stress, antibiotics, sugar or environmental toxins could do it. Sounds like you’re going through a more intensive detox than lat time. Once you take two or three courses and get things back on track, we recommend taking one booster course per season – winter, spring summer and fall – to keep your microbiome in good order. A year is a bit long to leave it. Good luck and keep us posted – Best, Shann

    Just to say thank you. I have been suffering from Thyroid problems for a couple of years and since drinking the kefir for 21 days, I can honestly say that I am now feeling so much better and have so much more energy. I also managed to persuade my husband to try it to see if it helped with his IBS and tummy problems. He was very sceptical but cannot believe the improvement and will even recommend this to family and friends. Well done and thank you to Chuckling Goat.

      Hi Madeleine – The goats are thrilled that you and your husband are both having such a great result from the kefir! We love converted sceptics – ; ) You might give your husband this article about kefir from the Huffington Post, which says: “IBS is not a disease, per se, but a grouping of symptoms including abdominal pain or discomfort, cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and/or constipation. Dietary changes are often suggested as a first-line defense against IBS. After all, why take medication if adding or subtracting certain foods could help? Many studies show that adding certain types of yogurt — specifically, those containing the bacteria lactobacilli and bifidobacteria — to your diet may alleviate the symptoms of IBS. These “good” bacteria are normally found in the large intestine, but adding them to your diet can help with gas, pain and bloating, while reducing the time it takes for food to move through the intestine, says Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist Michael Picco, MD. This, in turn, may be helpful in people with constipation; probiotics may also decrease the frequency of loose stools, improving IBS-related diarrhea. In one recent UK study, IBS sufferers who received a probiotic preparation made up of multiple strains of Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Lactis and Bifidobacterium Bifidum reported significantly greater improvement in the severity of their symptoms, fewer days of pain and improved quality of life compared with those who received a placebo.Probiotic-rich foods like kefir have also been shown to be beneficial in treating yeast infections, infant colic, bad breath, hangovers, and Traveler’s Diarrhea. So drink up!”http://www.huffingtonpost.com/leslie-goldman/the-flat-belly-food-you-d_b_250273.html

    I am 45 and have endometriosis. I suffer a lot from abdominal pain and lower back pain and as a result I have become quite lazy and don’t exercise much and for the past few years have eaten a truly awful diet of pizza, crisps and wine while sitting on the sofa (following a drive to work and sitting at my desk for 8 hours). I eat far too much sugar, wheat, dairy – all the things you sort of shouldn’t. So as with the rest of the nation I vowed to clean up my act and at the start of Jan started walking 2 miles a day and eating salmon and avocado – you know the sort of thing! I actually felt worse. Lethargic, tired beyond believe despite a regular 8hrs sleep (even 12 hours straight last Weds!) My skin was pale, shadows under my eyes – honestly, the temptation to go back to the wine and crisps was pretty intense! And then my Kefir arrived. I’m on Day 5 and today for the first time I have actually woken up! I feel like a plant that’s been watered. I am clear and focused at work and am starting to feel like I’m waking up from a rather deep hibernation. Early days but with 16 days still to go watch this space! Thanks Goats!

    I’m really pleased I discovered this kefir. My experience: I had very bad acid reflux come on fairly suddenly, and was put on omeprazole, and felt terribly ill if I didn’t take it. But I’ve just come off it after doing one course of this kefir. It might be down to other factors as well of course, as I’ve tried to do whatever I can to improve my diet and reduce stress. But it was noticeable that, although normally dairy products didn’t agree with the reflux so well, the kefir always went down fine. It is really quite disgusting on its own, but mixed up in the Nutribullet with some banana, some nuts or seeds, and something to sweeten it like dates or xylitol, it actually tastes quite nice. I’m just going to order my second batch now.

      Hi Miriam – So please that our kefir has helped your acid reflux! I would suggest sweetening with stevia rather than dates or xylitol. Good luck – hope it continues to work a treat for you. Do keep us posted –

    One of my grandsons and one of my granddaughters suffered from eczema. In the case of my grandson, his was on his skin, but worse, in his eyes. He could not go our in sunlight without the strongest sunglasses. I bought them both a 21-days course of milk and cream from you and within days my granddaughter, who is sixteen and very self-conscious, saw her skin return to that type of flawless that only the young seem to have. More astonishingly, my grandson’s eczema disappeared and he has been signed off from the hospital from his six-monthly visits for his eye condition. In fact he has now started playing rugby. I can only thank you for your help.

      Hi Howard – Absolutely brilliant news! We are thrilled that the kefir has been so helpful for both your granddaughter and your grand son’s eczema, and particularly the eyesight – that’s a new one on us, great to hear. As eczema is an autoimmune disorder, it does tend to run in families. And eczema in childhood can lead to food allergies, hay fever, and asthma in your 40s – a progression called the atopic march. Read more here: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/05/090518213939.htm
      The good news is that halting the atopic march at the eczema stage stops the progression – so you may just have saved your grandchildren from suggering from asthma in the 40s. Well done, and keep us posted!
      Hugs,
      Shann + the goats

    Excellent kefir, with actual live probiotics. It’s good to go on a course of this stuff once per year, don’t waste money on probiotic pills, they are not as effective and need to be taken constantly, while a course of this kefir has longer lasting effects. I like the taste. May I reccomend that you guys make sauerkraut too? I love sauerkraut, it tastes great plus it is a powerful probiotic! Unfortunately you can’t get live sauerkraut in stores in the UK, and that makes me sad 🙁

      Thanks for your kind words, we agree that the kefir is exponentially stronger than pills, which are dehydrated and dormant, and lose potency over time.
      Don’t know about the sauerkraut, the goats always eat up the cabbage before it gets a chance to ferment properly! ; )

    I’m on about my 5th order of goats milk kefir, just because I love it! I have it for my breakfast every morning blended with a handful of berries, banana, some oats, chia seeds and a splash of coconut water to thin it enough to drink. Keeps me going until lunch, tastes delicious. On Saturday mornings before going to parkrun I give the whole family a glassful, so we have energy to run 5k. Not sure if it’s a ‘superfood’, but sure tastes good.

    I’ve been taking my kefir for two weeks now and just ordered my second lot. Over the last few years I’ve had more and more allergies and sensitivities.Earlier this year my skin came out in angry red patches after the doctor prescribed me a nasal steroid spray, my skin became so sensitive to the touch and very, very itchy. My fantastic Pilates instructor told me about Chuckling Goat, thank goodness! I love the kefir – to me it tastes like a homemade unsweetened lemonade. After two weeks my digestive system is improving rapidly and my skin feels calm, soft and plumped instead of dry, itchy and papery fragile. On the inside I feel much more content, calm and focussed with a sense of wellbeing. I feel that my whole immune system is being strengthened and calmed. My sense of smell is returning quite rapidly after several years of blocked nasal passages and my respiratory system feels much clearer. I’ve ordered a further course of kefir as I’m benefitting so much. I’ll also consider taking a course at the end of the year to boost my system for the winter. I can’t tell you how much this means to me and so grateful to the goats and all at Chuckling Goat. A completely natural cure – amazing! Thank you so much!

    I bought the kefir at your open day (which was fabulous, loved meeting the goats, and the humans too!). I have been suffering for several years from a chronic blocked nose due to hay fever and other allergies. As I live on a farm and am surrounded by other farms when it is hay and silage time my symptoms were awful and nothing was helping. After taking the course of Kefir I no longer have a blocked snuffly nose. The result is amazing. I have been able to walk through the mown grass tonight with no affect on me at all! This would have been impossible for me normally. The effect on my general wellbeing is brilliant. I also love the taste of the Kefir so am going to order some more.( We have also named one of our baby goats Kefir.). I thoroughly recommend it. It has worked for me. Thank you so much.

    I have suffered with IBS for donkeys years and nothing has ever helped in any meaningful way. After a course of the Goats Milk Kefir I feel like a different person. I’ve been free of discomfort and had a flat stomach for the first time ever! Totally smitten with this stuff, it really works. You’ve got to try it!

    I have been suffering with Eczema for the majority of my life. About 3 years ago I had severe flare ups on my face, neck and chest as well as my legs and arms. After being pasted from doctors to dermatologists I have found little success with steroid creams and immunosuppressant creams. My father suggested the 21 day course after he heard about it on Steve Wright in the afternoon. I was wary of taking this course as I have tried other natural ways of treating my eczema which have had no effect. After over a week into the course I noticed a slight difference with my skin but towards the end I noticed a vast improvement with the majority of the eczema clearing away. I also found less need to apply ointments to relieve itching and rehydrate my skin. My course ended a few weeks ago and I have noticed a regression so I will definitely be ordering another course. I found the raw goats milk Kefir didn’t taste great at first but it is a very small price to pay for something that finally helps!

    I’ve had a rubbish digestion for most of my adult life, in spite of a healthy diet. In April last year I had my gall bladder removed, and was extremely unwell most od the summer. I started taking enzymes, which helpt a bit, but I heard about the kefir on steve wright’s show and thought I would give it a try. I’ve got 6 days supply left, and I’ve definitely seen an improvement, so really pleased. I found it a bit unpalatable on its own, but mixed with half a banana or some berries, I have got to quite enjoying it. I’m just going to order some for my daughter who has developed an extreme reaction to tree pollen. Worth a try, and must be better than the steroids her doctor has prescribed. Small tip, don’t shake the bottle too hard before you open it. Volcanic!!

    I have also tried this after listening to Steve Wright show. I is really good and have also just ordered my 2nd lot of goats milk kerif. It is so nice not to feel bloating and having a rumbling stomach. It is very gentle on the stomach.
    After hearing the programme we have purchased a couple of goat kids for mating next year and will produce my on Kerif.
    We kept goats several years ago and just drinking their milk it cleared my skin up.
    Congratulations and thanks for a wonderful product. Wish the doctors etc would recognise this sort of thing.

    I was diagnosed with rosacea last year and prescribed with an on-going course of antibiotics. I didn’t want to have to take these for ever though, and then saw the Daily Mail Sunday supplement article earlier this year, as a result of which I recently finished a 21 day course of kefir. My skin has definitely improved. It’s not as inflamed, is less prone to break-outs, and is ‘calmer’ than it’s been in a long while. I even had a comment from someone saying that I was ‘glowing’ the other day! It’s made me feel so much better in myself and I feel much happier now about my appearance. And I absolutely LOVE the raw, sour taste of kefir. The sourer and fizzier the better for me! It’s like drinking mild goat’s cheese. I could drink it all day! Many thanks to Shann and the team for introducing me to this wonderful product. I’ll definitely be back for more!

    Tried this after listening to you on Steve Wright show. Just about to order my 2nd lot of goats milk kefir as have grown to look forward to it mixed with banana and berries for breakfast. It did take about 4 days to get used to the taste, but I do feel better and far less itchy, especially now that the pollens are flying about. I’m usually stuffed to the eyeballs with tablets to combat the hay fever/allergy symptoms every day for weeks, but so far just antihistamines, and only occasional decongestant, amazing for me! No sore eyes is the biggest thing I have noticed, which is usually a daily constant this time of year. Plus I love the smell of the soaps, and someone commented how lovely my skin was looking!

    I was a bit nervous starting the 21 days programme but soon got used to the taste and even began to enjoy the taste by the end. I saw an improvement in my overall skin health but my scalp psoriasis remained so I am ordering another cycle and cutting out caffeine, alcohol and sugar this time to see if it clears up. Otherwise my mood was greatly improved and I felt that digestion was in tip top condition while drinking it! Well done on a great product.

    I have suffered for years with an inflamed stomach lining, which has caused countless days and nights crawling around the floor in complete agony, unable to do anything to stop the pain and sickness. Anything could set it off and sometimes it would just start in the middle of the night for no reason. Having finally been given something by my doctor, I then discovered that it was a temporary fix and long time actually made the condition worse. I ordered the Kefir in the desperate hope that it could help my situation. I’m just over half way through the 21 days and am about to place another order. My stomach is already greatly improved and I’m sure will continue to do so throughout the rest of the course, but the thing that I’ve been amazed by, has been the complete eradication of craving firstly my coffee (which I shouldn’t have been drinking with my stomach anyway) but also sweet stuff and general rubbish – I am slimming down too! Also my skin is look fantastic and I don’t think I’m imagining the fact that my wrinkles have smoothed out a lot. I’ve written way more than I should have, but I really cannot praise this product highly enough. Well done to all the Chuckling Goat team and please keep up the good work!! 🙂 x

    Amazing. I have been ill for 2 years. I have lots of rashes and aches pains, sensitivity to sunlight, sleep problems and severe lethargy. I am on a cocktail of pills and potions prescribed by the Consultant I am under at the hospital. I have a compromised immune system and a diagnosis of reactive arthritis. I have been amazed at the difference in my health since starting the 21 day course. I am currently on day 16. I have noticed a distinct improvement in all my aches pains and stiffness and definitely have better movement in my joints. My lethargy has gone and I have slept better in the past 16 days than I have in the previous 2 years. Most nights I have slept all night without any wakefulness. I also have been surrounded by ill people with colds and infections normally I would have succumbed to chest infections as a result. Since taking the goat milk I have avoided illness and in fact have noticed a feeling of wellbeing. I have in the past had numerous courses of antibiotics both intravenous and orally. I fully expect to need more courses of Kefir before I am again well but the difference is amazing and encouraging. I cant wait to see my consultant to see what he thinks of the differences and will be interested in my blood results to see if those also show a change. I totally recommend it is definitely worth trying.
