    Hi, I fast a lot and so I don’t want to take it first thing in the morning cause it will break the fast. But if taking that first thing in the morning has more benefits than drinking it with or after the meal, I will take it first. But if the benefits are equal, I want to delay. So, are benefits the same?

      It is only advisory, you can take the Kefir when it is best for you, some people take it last thing before bed. Kefir works better on an empty stomach but it doesn’t mean it wont work if you take it with food or at any other time of the day.
