Kefir microbiota

It’s almost 20 years that I cultivate kefir milk, I'm very happy with it but now I would like to identify which microbes live in my kefir, how could I improve their alpha diversity and if is it possible to select a population of kefir microbes that fits my gut microbiota.

I know that after so many years of kefir daily assumption, my gut microbiota knows perfectly and tolerate my milk kefir, but I think it could be better.

I know also there are a lot of people cultivating kefir: no one of such kefir cultures is equal to the others, they somewhat differ, in this difference, there is much to know ... this I would like to investigate but I have no means (and little money to give).

If someone is interested let me know.

I’m from Italy, I could describe myself as a biohacker, as I experiment on myself everything I know could improve my health, only with “all-natural” stuff: food, probiotics, yoga, cold showers.

Thanks, I'll take a look at your show.



Look for 16S amplicon sequencing, not sure if these are offered commercially.
