Home of the good bacteria

Welcome to the home of good bacteria.

Kefir and yogurt are among the the healthiest food on earth. With the help of the good guys, the live bacteria aka live active culture, anyone can take a small step at attaining good health. However, this is only so when the product you choose says "live bacteria, or active culture, or live culture". Our products have live culture thus you get the full benefits from yogurt. Not only that, we use natural ingredients for most of our products - brown sugar, fresh fruit, farm fresh milk, natural sugar replacement(stevia), and organic eggs to name a few.

Just because it is healthy does not mean it is boring. At Yoggie's, we make sure that you get to love being healthy and say "it's so yummy!" all the way home.

But don't just take our word for it, take a look at some of our products:

Introducing the Superfood - Kefir!

I am a nurse and part of my commitment to the community is to serve really healthy food that could be beneficial to many. As of today, I feel like I have made another step to proving that. We now serve not just yogurt but kefir. Kefir,like yogurt (it actually is yogurt anyway), is fermented milk. The difference mainly lies on the "little guys" that sour the milk.

At the present time, I believe that the healthiest food on earth is kefir. It is claimed to help people who have cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, kidney problems, etc. Here are some of the benefits (I am actually lifting the following verbatim from ezinearticles.com):

"The miraculous health grain known as kombucha, tibicos, and kifir in different parts of the world is slowly being rediscovered. Kefir-as most people know the white, grainy matrix of lipids, yeast, and bacteria- is the secret key to good health. The kefir health benefits include not only taking care of your insides but also your body's external parts.

Known to have originated from the Caucasus region, people have believed that "possessing" kefir grains are a sign of wealth. People during those times must have taken the saying "health is wealth" to heart because they guard their supply of kefir grains with their lives. And because you only need a batch of kefir grains to last you a lifetime, there is no need to replenish your supply as fermented kefir grains keep on reproducing.

The word "kefir" is the most appropriate word to describe the miracle grain. Originating from the Turkish word kief-which means good feeling, the kefir health benefits will surely make you feel good inside and out. Kefir naturally has antibiotic and antifungal properties that treat familiar as well as rare diseases. It is unimaginable that something so simple-looking could be a weapon against sickness. From head to foot, not even sparing your brain from its benefits, kefir truly is the miracle cure.

Despite these properties, taking kefir has no side effects. Because of the active good bacteria and beneficial yeast, they can quickly destroy the destructive elements by quickly propagating. It also strengthens one's immune system and is a natural strength-booster so there's no need for you too spend too much on health supplements and energy drinks.

Most of the kefir health benefits could be credited to the mixture of calcium found from milk. The nutrients from the milk heighten the already strong effects of kefir itself. Drinking milk kefir nourishes your hair, treats gum diseases and strengthens your bones. Kefir prevents bone diseases such as osteoporosis. So if you're worried about your crackling bones, make sure to try this wonder food and see the difference in a week's span.

Kefir health benefits include taking care of your skin. Including kefir in your diet prevents acne, psoriasis and even wrinkles. Being a natural anti-oxidant, kefir keeps you young-looking and makes your skin glow with health.

Nothing spells beautiful more than being healthy and natural-looking. Just by taking your daily dose of kefir, you are keeping yourself away from those useless skin products that can sometimes damage your skin more.

Another 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. So if you want your mind to be in its optimal capability, drink your kefir daily.

If you're worrying about your digestion and metabolism, there's no need to worry. One of the kefir health benefits includes improving your digestion. If you're constipated, regular intake of kefir cleanses your intestines and your stomach normalizing your bowel movements.

To weight-loss seekers, having kefir as part of your diet could make you shave unwanted weight faster. Because kefir has probiotics, it speeds up the your body's metabolism letting your body burn more fats and calories even if you're only spending your normal workout time. No more need to take dangerous weight-loss pills that could cause harmful side-effects. Just take kefir and in no time, your body will surely be fab!

To those who are worried about their heart's health, kefir is also the solution. Kefir clears your blood vessels and regulates your blood pressure. When you drink kefir, you are not only equipping your immune system but also keeping your heart healthy.

Your lungs are not spared from the kefir health benefits. Taking kefir daily prevents respiratory diseases from the most common up to the complicated ones like tuberculosis. It also helps treat asthma and bronchitis.

If you are one of those people who have a busy lifestyle, these kefir health benefits are for you. Kefir is a natural stress-buster. Having cold a cold milk kefir or water kefir drink not only refreshes you but also detoxifies your body. Its natural properties are even better than the benefits boasted by certain kinds of teas. If you are an insomniac, you should also take kefir to assure you of a good night's rest free of worries and anxiety. Enjoying your cold, soothing kefir is the key for your body to be at peace.

Kefir is considered to be the mysterious key to one's good health. Kefir health benefits provide holistic defense for the body. In these modern times, most of us lead busy and stressful lives. There are many ways to live healthy but some are offering complicated ways to stay that way. However, with the simplicity of kefir, the only thing needed is to culture the grains and take it regularly like how you drink your milk or your coffee. It's that simple. No need for measuring your food or taking mysterious "organic" medicines. Rediscovering this age-old secret helps us adapt to our current lifestyles while assuring us and our loved ones of wellbeing."

Looking for Kefir

I have been in search of Kefir grains for the past 2 months now but all I have found so far are the drinks from which the grains have been harvested from already. Does anyone know where I can buy them?

It would be interesting to make kefir ice cream and smoothies to add to the list of healthy product. we hope to incorporate this and other non-food items to our store. Please let me know when you hear of anything we can evaluate. I'd be glad to give it some thought. So far I have heaven's cure on my list. They make the VCO based sunscreen.
