Do you know the truth about the soda you drink?
My dad is an a/c mechanic. Do you know what he uses to eat rust off of bolts he can’t unscrew? Coke. The CO2 in ANY soda eats the rust so he can unscrew the bolt. Hmm. What is that doing to your stomach?! I love my Coke, but sheesh! Is it worth it?
So I went on a quest to make my own soda. No, not from a machine you can buy from the infomercial ~ from scratch...from water kefir grains.
As it turns out, we crave soda because our bodies naturally love the “bubbles.” It’s refreshing. REAL soda is refreshing, AND it quenches your thirst. Conventional soda actually dehydrates you.
The process water kefir grains go through is called lacto-fermentation, a process lost as we've pasteurized everything we eat. Water kefir grains metabolize the sugar and minerals, creating natural carbonation. The metabolization creates probiotic properties that will heal infection, enzymes that will help digest your food, and other beneficial bacteria (now missing from our diets due to pasteurization) that will combat tumors and cancers. It also cleanses out toxins from your body.
I’ve lost about eight pounds in two weeks drinking this homemade soda (among other dietary changes). The reason? It aids in digestion and elimination of waste from your body. I feel healthier, and more refreshed, but don’t take just my word for it. Here’s feedback from my first customer:
"I love my Kefir grains!!! I brew every other day to keep up with my 'drinking habits.' LOL...I love it! I feel better, my blood sugars are much better (I'm Diabetic), I have more energy, less stomach problems and I am treating my cancer all at the same time!"
I have some in my online etsy store now. It’s been so helpful for me that I wanted to share. In my listing, you will find double the portion that others sell for the same price, complete instructions, plus a free recipe of different flavors for your soda.

Remember, with any change you make to your diet, be patient and set realistic goals for yourself. I still enjoy a once-in-a-while small glass of Coke. :)
