Kefir is a fermented milk product that promotes healthy digestive flora. The probiotics in kefir help support our digestive system and prevent buildup of harmful bacterial. For people who are lactose intolerant, kefir may also be a healthy substitute for dairy products. Papaya, on the other hand, has anti-inflammatory properties and is high fiber. These properties help to promote a healthy colon and aid to lower cholesterol. Folic acid in papaya also converts homocysteine, a promoter of heart disease, into benign amino acids.
