Just two simple ingredients and so many health benefits! We hope this recipe will become your go-to morning drink. Be sure to make it at home!

Cleansing Drink

kefir and flax seeds

You need specifically kefir, neither milk nor yogurt. Out of all dairy products, kefir contains yeast, bacilli and streptococci that provide a friendly flora in the large and small intestine — this is important. That’s why not only milk-based kefir is suitable, but even the one made on water.

Flax seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids that dissolve fecal concretions and heal the mucous membranes. However, only whole or coarsely ground seeds work as a brush for the stomach. Expanding, they fill it, providing a sense of fullness for a long time and cleansing the intestinal wall at the same time.

Body Detoxification Course

The plan is designed for 21 days. If you have not arranged a “spring clean” for the stomach for a long time, doctors recommend repeating the course after 2 weeks. Also, to maintain the effect you need to return to the course once every six months.

  • First week: for breakfast, drink ½ cup (100 ml) of kefir with 3 teaspoons of flax seeds (it is better to grind them in a mortar right before using).
  • Second week: ½ cup (100 ml) of kefir with 6 teaspoons of flax seeds for breakfast.
  • Third week: ⅔ cup (150 ml) of kefir with 9 teaspoons of flax seeds for breakfast.

Make it a routine to drink a glass of hot water 40 minutes before breakfast to start the body (as you know, in the early morning our body is not yet ready to digest the food, and it needs help). Remember that this should be your only breakfast! Kefir with seeds before bedtime isn’t that effective, it’s better to please yourself with a protein dinner from chicken breast or eggs.

Even if you start chewing a tablespoonful of flax seeds before breakfast, it will also pay off — a useful life hack to maintain the results after taking a cleansing course.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
