A study led by a UNC researcher shows that kefir is an effective post-exercise dairy
beverage that won’t cause stomach upset. “The beverage received high scores overall
and, except for an improvement in overall liking, we observed no significant differences
in physical and psychological feelings before and after participants learned that
it contained kefir and had potential health benefits,” said lead investigator Laura
K. Stewart, Ph.D., associate professor in UNC’s School of Sport and Exercise Science.
