    In 1908, Metchnikov wrote in his book "The extension of life" that the secret of longevity found in the Russian Caucasus Mountains was Kefir. Kefir is actually cultured milk that people made and consumed. The villagers of the Caucasus Mountains gave us the Caucasian yoghurt and kefir (milk fermentation product). Kefir history goes back several centuries. It is widely known in Eastern Europe and the old Pontus Area. People in the Caucasus Mountains drink kefir instead of water and also eat dense kefir cream as a dessert. Caucasian Mountain people do not suffer from the degenerative diseases of modern western society people and their estimated lifespan exceeds 110 years. Their longevity is actually because of kefir consumption.

    If youre looking for a probiotic look up florastor. Its a really good strain with science behind it. It helped my wife during a serious bout of ibs.

    Interesting. I never heard of it but i'm curious to try it out. Is this something you can only have once in a while? Or you can have it regularly?

    who in the fuck wants to live 110 years in this world?

    i guess you could have it regularly. it's not expensive to get the grains and all you need is some jars, a strainer, and milk so it would be easy to try and you haven't lost much if you don't like it. i could tell when the guy was saying oh this is messy n time consuming he was trying to sell something. looks like even the hard way takes only 5 minutes so ignore the sales pitch. Vanity has ibs and it looks like this might really help some people. i like sour cream, yogurt smoothies, and things like that so i think i might like it.

    Sweet. I got these Amazon.com: Kefir Grains - Living Probiotic Enriched: Everything Else
    no particular reason why i chose them, just because it was decently cheap and the reviews all said they came live. Should be here in a few days. And i'll keep updating

    Had something like it by accident 2 nights ago when I poured milk onto my Kashi Cocoa Beach cereal special snack and gagged when I realized I just swallowed spoiled milk...I dumped the bowl in the sink and then poured the cup or so of milk left in that jug and it came out in clumps....sorry but I probably couldn't stomach this shit.

    We made buttermilk in the Nutrition and Diet class I took in High School by mixing lemon juice in milk, it curdled and tasted nasty just like spoiled milk. wonder if I could speed the fermentation and add the kefir grains for faster production?

    Looks like the Whole Foods by my house has it, might make some frozen yogurt snacks with it.....

    This looks tasty...Lemon Kefir Ice Cream | Chocolate & Zucchini

    Topped with candied violets sounds even better...I love eating flowers, dandelions, carnations, anise hyssop on vanilla bean ice cream, pineapple guava flowers on lychee sorbet....

    If they make advances so we don't shrivel and our body functions devolve to infant state I would, but after taking care of my GF's 88 yr old grandfather I resolved that at the first sign of the inglorious bastard called "death by natural causes" the elderly go through I will OD on some narcotic or something...I don't want to burden anyone as I lay helplessly dying....
