In my mind there are 2 kinds of Kefir. The kind you get at the store or the kind you ferment at home. Both are good for you and Kefir is supposed to have more strains of probiotics than yogurt.
I sometimes drink the plain organic Lifeway brand. But if you want all the true health benefits you should get milk kefir grains and ferment your own. If you google Kefir grains you will find a lot of info and a lot of people willing to send you some. When people talk about Kefir and its amazing health benefits, they are usually talking about the kind you make at home with kefir grains, not the commercial kind at the store.
While the kefir at the store is still good for you, not sure there is much more benefit than commercial yogurt.
