    Geez, I hate that my body ages so much faster than my brain...
    LOL at 60 I know what you mean! Since taking a probiotic every morning, I now have very little gas .

    I'm on a strong antibiotic for my spider bite so I've been drinking a lot of kefir. I decided I needed a probiotic, too. Very confusing at the drug store. I hope I got something useful. I got a CVS version of a name brand.

    I've started making my own kefir both dairy- and water-based. It's great better tasting and a lot less expensive than the store-bought stuff!

    It's super easy. My cousin sent me the kefir culture grains (different cultures for water-based and milk-based); these suckers reproduce like bunnies, so once you get going, there's plenty to share.
    Here's the link to the site that was the most helpful to me when I got started: Kefir | How to Make Kefir

    And if you google "making kefir at home" you'll find YouTube videos with step-by-step instructions. Though it's really not difficult at all mix water + organic sugar + grains or not-ultra-pasteurized milk + grains in a mason jar, cover with a coffee filter held in place with a rubber band, and let sit out for a couple days. Cheap & easy!

    Interesting! I didn't know it could be made with water or coconut milk. Thank you so much for that link!
