Ep. 86 – KePro: How to Maintain Gut Health & Fill in the Gaps of Your Diet – with Leslie Cannon

Leslie Cannon has 25 years of experience in the food industry, doing everything from formulations to R&D challenges, QC standards to manufacturing, retail channels to distribution. 

Leslie became fascinated with how food impacts the body, so she spent years studying with scientists, microbiologist, and PHDs to learn more.

Not because the doctor wanted a food to cure cancer but because most of his patients ended up essentially starving to death, and they needed a nutrient-dense food that they could actually eat.

This started the journey to creating KePro, a kefir protein probiotic, natural whole food created to help maintain your digestive health and fill in the gaps of what is lost in the American diet. It contains 33 billion probiotics per gram, vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and natural electrolytes, all working together in a symbiotic relationship.

Kefir or kephir is a fermented milk drink similar to a thin yogurt that is made from kefir grains, a specific type of mesophilic symbiotic culture. The drink originated in the North Caucasus, Eastern Europe, and Russia, where it is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains.

Kefir contains the probiotic Lactobacillus kefiri and the carbohydrate kefiran, both of which protect against harmful bacteria.

Full-fat kefir is not only a great source of calcium but also vitamin K2, which plays a central role in calcium metabolism. Supplementing with K2 has been shown to reduce your risk of fractures by as much as 81%, and it also helps with fighting cancer.
