Curious. How much people usually take when drinking any type of Kefir?

Usually kefir from the store isn't vegan or made from soya (not good).
you can make your own kefir with coconut water. You can google Elena Love and she sells a dvd about fermented food. She has a recipe for that.
It is very good for you to take, it balances the good bacteria etc..
I now simply do fermentation without using kefir, i just use the air, meaning, let my cheese or yogurt sit over night and voila.

How much do you usually drink? Just need that info. Thanks all
I don't think there is a limit to how much you can drink. It is a very efficient probiotic, so unless there is a limit to how many probiotics you can take, then it should be fine. Check how much 'rejuvelac' Ann Vigmore recommended per day, it is a similar thing. Also, I guess the amount depends on what you want to achieve.
I found this as a comment to You Tube video, however. I don't know if it is true but worth researching, and also finding out whether this applies to Kefir and other probitics.
"Beware the Hippocrotes Health Centre does not recomend using rejuvelac any more. In their book, The Hippocrates Health Program, they state "Rejuvelac, once a major part of the Hippocrates diet, has been eliminated due to research showing that it encouraged the growth of unfriendly bacteria, which negated the effects of good bacteria. Mounting complaints of discomfort promted us to delete this fermented drink from our diet" They recommend, use distilled water instead of rejuvelec."
Any light on this, anyone?
Hi ~ I drink about 1 quart a day of water kefir. I love the stuff! *Ü*

I make my own kefir at home and I drink one big glass of milk kefir a day, and several big glasses of water kefir tea every day. I no longer have any problems down there, if you know what I mean.
