Happy Gut is a water kefir home brew supply company located in the West Kootenays of British Columbia. We are the largest Canadian producer of water kefir grains, do-it-yourself fermentation kits and flavouring infusions. Each of our products are hand-crafted by our team using thoughtfully chosen, certified organic ingredients. We supply high quality products, information, inspiration and support to those who want to integrate live probiotic water kefir into their lives. 

The Happy Gut company was started in 2017 after Founder Leeza Zurwick received a gift of water kefir grains and struggled to find the proper supplies and information needed to make the drink with confidence. She quickly learned that fermentation is a natural process affected by many factors and continued to experiment with ways to stabilize it. She collaborated with a professional microbiologist and an experienced brewer to perfect the Happy Gut Method of water kefir fermentation. We are confident that you can be a successful brewer using our method.

We believe food is medicine, and that a healthy life begins with a healthy microbiome.

Water kefir is a probiotic alternative to sugary beverages, it has no caffeine, has a refreshing, pleasant taste and children love it. We strive to provide quality products and recipes so that anyone can make water kefir at home.
