Health: FAQs

Every day new science is learning more and more about the inner workings of our bodies and how every living being (mankind included) has evolved symbiotically with bacteria.

Inside our bodies are twenty times more bacteria than living cells. Having the right bacteria is crucial for good gut health and a strong immune system

for fighting infections.


Why is Tibico good for your health ?
As new science discovers more and more about gut health and the crucial role that bacteria play in our health and wellbeing, our diet is critical to our overall health. WE ARE WHAT WE EAT ! 

Tibico is loaded with valuable beneficial bacteria and yeasts (probiotics), digestive enzymes, pre-digested nutrients, amino acids, vitamins and minerals


Tibico supplies your body with billions of beneficial bacteria and yeast strains. Most store-bought probiotics and supplements can help, but they are not as potent, and do not contain the variety of bacteria and lack beneficial yeasts.


Within your body there are already billions of bacteria and yeast. Your internal microflora 'your microbiome' supports proper digestion, synthesis of vitamins and minerals, and your immune system by warding off foreign and harmful bacteria, yeast and viruses.

While kefir is not a magic bullet for health (what is) we believe Tibico has a myriad of possible health benefits.



The Amazing Health Benefits of Drinking Water Kefir

1. Activates the Digestive System

In the presence of friendly bacteria, the digestive system works optimally and the nutrients are well assimilated. The digestibility of the food is improved as the bacterias break down large nutrients into smaller ones. This makes the food substances bio-available to the body. The bacteria found in kefir water that populate the gut break down the food that hasn’t been absorbed by the small intestine and boosts the elimination of the toxic substances. Kefir water is also responsible for regulating the stomach’s acidity.


2. Minimizes Food Intolerance

The intestinal flora also affects the thickness and renewal of the intestinal mucus. This means that it evades intestinal permeability, leading to several food intolerances. Foods that are not digestible are not circulated in the blood but rather degraded in the intestines which play an immunological role especially in the balancing of the bacteria.


3. Strengthens the Immune System


Water kefir has a positive effect on our immune system. The products of lactic acid fermentation in water kefir have antibacterial effects and thus offer the body with protection against infections. The probiotic bacteria control the possibility of excessive growth of pathogens and the decomposition of bacteria in the intestines.  Kefir water is, in this case, a natural disinfectant, and it also promotes cellular respiration and boosts metabolism.


A study conducted in 1997 by Kabayama team on the use and benefits of water kefir showed that water kefir and its main polysaccharide kefiran reduce or inhibit the negative action of stress on the production of interferon-β which is a humoral factor.


4. Contains Vitamins

Kefir water is a well-known source of essential vitamins. It is exceedingly rich in vitamins B1, B6 and B2. Additionally, the fruits that are added to the kefir water provide Vitamin C along with other important nutrients.


Vitamin B1 is important for cardiovascular functions, improving brain function, protects the nerves, assists in digestion, protecting the mucous membrane, prevents the development of anemia and helps in the synthesis of glucose.


B6 helps in boosting the immune system, supporting brain function, controlling disorders that are behavioral, improves mood, treatment of high blood pressure, prevents cardiovascular sicknesses, enhances metabolism and supports enzymatic system among other functions.


Vitamin C is useful in the reduction of asthma, preventing cataracts, lowering levels of glycosylated hemoglobin, protects against oxidation of proteins, decreasing side effects of cancer chemotherapy, promotes the production of collagen, and boost a healthy immune system. If you want to fulfill your need for nutrients, it is recommendable for you to drink kefir water daily.


5. Reduces Allergic Reactions

Allergies are mostly caused by an intolerance to certain foods that you eat. Allergy symptoms may vary from one person to another.  If your body cannot tolerate the intake of milk kefir, kefir water offers you with a healthy alternative. The probiotics in the kefir water also help in fighting bacteria, viruses, and preventing allergies.


6. Water Kefir is an Energy Booster

Kefir water has many essential nutrients, therefore it will help boost levels of energy. As a tip, you can add juice from coconut to the kefir water. This may boost your energy levels as the coconut juice contains potassium which will help in muscle strengthening and thus giving you more energy.

7. Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Inflammations are the results of injuries.  Inflammations are a natural way of responding to damage. When the body gets damaged, it uses inflammations in order to defend itself from bacteria or a virus. To be able to do this, the body requires additional amounts of nutrients so it can heal.


A balance of the useful bacteria in the digestive system is essential for a well-functioning body. When you drink kefir water, your body will be nourished with the necessary minerals and useful bacteria that your body needs. This drink is really great anti-inflammatory treatment. Kefir water has also proven to heal certain conditions such as nausea, indigestion, and diarrhea.


8. Helps in the Fight Against Cancer

There are many possible known causes for developing cancer. Many studies are being conducted about this problem and how it can actually be prevented. People are also being warned against consuming foods that are possible contributors to the development of cancerous cells.  Kefir water plays a huge role in the fight against cancer. Studies have shown that drinking this beverage regularly can help prevent breast cancer and malign ovarian cancer.

9. Water Kefir Contains Anti-fungal and Antibiotic Properties

Our bodies are faced with threats every day. The sources of these threats may come from pollution, the ambient environment, unhealthy lifestyles, and harmful processed foods. Our body needs protection from all these threats. Kefir water is a rich probiotic source and thus acts as an anti-fungal and as an antibiotic. It also contains beneficial bacteria which is useful in fighting fungi and other disease-causing bacteria. It is for this reason that taking kefir water is a good way of protecting your body.


10. Lowers the Risk of Diabetes

The bacteria and yeast produce enzymes that break down the sucrose (the double sugar bond that sugar is composed of) into fructose and glucose. Fructose is digested by the liver and does not spike the blood sugar of diabetics like sucrose or glucose. Because of the fructose, Tibico has a low GL (Glycemic Load).. Also the added acetic acids and carbonation from the fermentation also lower the GL.

GL stands for Glycaemic Load. It’s a unit of measurement that tells you exactly what a particular food will do to your blood sugar. Foods with a high GL have a greater effect on your blood sugar, which isn’t desirable. Foods with a low GL encourage the body to burn fat, which is what we’re aiming for.


Keeping your blood sugar balanced is the concept at the heart of the low GL diet – sustainable weight loss will follow.

When your blood sugar level increases, the hormone insulin is released into the bloodstream to remove the glucose (sugar). Some glucose goes to the brain and muscles where it’s used as an energy fuel, but any excess goes to the liver where it’s turned into fat and stored, causing you to gain weight. Insulin is known as the fat-storing hormone.


11. Used as a Treatment for Asthma

The causes of asthma are not well known but it is characterized by the narrow bronchial tubes which cause hard breathing. This may happen as a result of allergies, stress or maybe even doing hard exercises. The best way to deal with this condition is to prevent it. One way a person can do this is by taking kefir water. This drink has positive effects for the treatment of asthma. It also contains anti-inflammatory nutrients.
