Question Anyone knows anything about water kefirs?

I got some water kefirs a while back and succesfully brewed lemon ginger water kefir drinks.

I know water kefir drinks are good for you, since they have probiotics. Unfortunately, every time I consume the drink, I start having stomach gas and bloating.

Before I give up on water kefir, does any one know if you are supposed to consume the drink on an empty stomach? Any tips on water kefir - good or bad are welcome.

Thanks.

I drink Lifeway Kefir, is that a water Kefir ? It is 99% gluten and lactose free...I have no bloating problems. I love Kefir because it has all those probiotic goodies as well as tastes great! If Lifeway Kefir isn't water kefir, please tell me about water kefir...it sounds interesting!

I just looked up water kefir and see that it is different from the kefir I drink which is milk based. Water kefir sounds GREAT !!!! I found a webstie that gives a simple how-to for anyone that might be intersted, I know I am!

You have to use sugar water to make this? Not for me. Sorry because it sounded great.

Check out the last website I posted; they have instructions for making it with unsweetened coconut water. That's the one that I'm intersted in because I use unsweetened coconut water as a recovery drink.

I've been getting it at Whole Foods, but I know that Costco carries it, too. Someone told me to check out Walmart as well....
I've been getting the non-flavored Zico, but a few of my friends swear by the flavored varieties. I haven't tried Vita Coco yet, but that will be more mainstream soon, thus more easy to find.
