Now you can get KEFIR GRAINS from GreenSmoothieGirl.com

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Feb 16, 2012

I have been working for a long time on a way to get you quality kefir grains. It’s hard because they are live organisms, and so we cannot mass-produce them.

I’m happy to announce that Melinda (GSG staff) and I have been growing them, both WATER grains and MILK grains, and we have them up on the site HERE.

See the photos and instructions on that page, how to use your grains to make infinite batches of kefir, and what to do with your kefir.

Please note that we will likely sell out after I post this on the blog.

But if you try to get some grains and we’re sold out, just make a note of the page on the GreenSmoothieGirl.com site, and come back. We’ll have more later.

When people ask me what the two most important steps in 12 Steps to Whole Foods are, it’s kind of like asking who my favorite child is when I love them all. But with so many people with gut issues, I say Step 1 and 8.

Step 8 is all about making fermented foods to replace the probiotics missing in anyone’s diet who has EVER been on antibiotics, or who eats processed food, or who has ever eaten animal products from animals fed antibiotics.

When you start eating kefir every day, you may find you don’t get sick any more. It’s a critically important habit to keep your immune system strong. Most of your immune function is in your gut. Your helpful microorganisms in your body outnumber your body’s cells 9 times over.

    I was just reading about the benefits of Kefir and can’t wait to try this out for better immunity and some other things I’ve been struggling with. Thank you for all this great info. Here’s what I was reading below…

    Kefir is natural brain food, helps in treating depression, anxiety, and even the attention-related disorders.
    One of the Kefir health benefits is its brain-enhancement capability. As natural brain-food, Kefir helps you break free from stress. While pumping up your brain, Kefir also develops the usual functions of your brain such as reflexes, memory-retention and even your focus. This benefit works hand in hand with the five senses and leads you to be at your best. Kefir also helps cure depression, anxiety, and even the attention-related disorders. Kefir is also rich in Vitamin B1 (thiamin) which is known as the “morale vitamin” for its beneficial effects on the mental attitude and nervous system. Thiamin is linked with enhanced learning capacity, growth in children, improvement in muscle tone of the stomach, intestines and heart, and is essential for stabilizing appetite and improving digestion.

    Think we all need to try it!! 🙂

    Hi Robyn, this is a little off topic (I posted this on an earlier dated blog)– but I was wondering if you were going to be doing an update on your Vitamin D progress in the near future (after this winter is over)? I thought I recalled reading that you were going to up your intake to 5,000 IU and see how your numbers look afterwards. I want to take a D supplement and would like to know what your thoughts are on claims that it is not effective when not taken with magnesium. Thank you.

      Kyung, I will learn more about this and get a Vita D test at the end of the winter, although I’m not sure it’s a great test since i’ve traveled and been in the sun a couple days every month in Cali, Florida, Hawaii, etc.

    Oh NO! Your link and your site are not loading. Must have too much traffic. I do want those grains though! I’ll have to check back later. So glad you’re doing this.

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Yes, Michele, we’ve had terrible problems this week and my staff is migrating us to a new hosting/server tonight. Sorry. Yes, check back. We’re nearly sold out as predicted.

    I have been making rejuvelac is there a bigger or different benefit to the kefir?

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Anne, different probiotic organisms—both are great habits to adopt!

    I am so glad you finally have them for sale, I have already purchased them and can’t wait to get it. I have been looking for someone who might have them in the town I live in and haven’t been able to find any. Thank you!

    Hey Robyn! Your directions say 3-5 days to ferment but everything I’ve read says 24-48 hours. Why do you say differently? Just curious, Jennifer

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Jennifer, actually, especially in warmer weather, 24-48 hours is more accurate. Thank you—will change that.

    Thanks for offering the water kefir grains for sale Robyn! My daughter and I have been drinking kefir for about 6 months now and, not only have we not gotten sick, but my underweight daughter is gaining weight for the first time. I really believe the probiotics in the kefir are helping to heal her digestive tract, restore her gut flora balance, and help her absorb the nutrients in her food so she can gain weight. I also agree with Autumn that kefir is beneficial to the brain as I have seen mood and attention improvements in her as well. Hooray for kefir!

    Do you think Kefir is okay for daily use for pregnant ladies or toddlers?
