Welcome to Helios Nutrition! Our company is dedicated to providing you with delicious, healthy food products that promote a sense of wholeness and well-being.

Based on the philosophy of Hippocrates who believed in the healing force of nature, our products combine the lastest findings in nutritional research with authentic traditional healing foods. Nature’s Wisdom, human discovery: Honor the Two!

At Helios Nutrition, we believe that good health involves the nourishment of mind, body, and soul with healthy knowledge, food, and surroundings. We have worked hard on your behalf to identify decent and dedicated ingredients suppliers and craftsmen to share their enthusiasm and passion with you!

Our organic kefir with FOS/inulin is designed to promote everyday good health: Calcium, Fiber, and Probiotic cultures.


Kefir is a probiotic product; it is a food that will increase and promote the life of good bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. A healthy GI tract is vital to a strong immune system and disease prevention. The GI tract contains more than half the body’s immune system and 100 trillion microorganisms (weighing 2-3 pounds!). If you have a healthy GI system populated with the “good guy” bacteria, you are less susceptible to bacterial infections and chronic illnesses, including but not limited to asthma, food allergies, and yeast infections.

The FOS/inulin in kefir is a prebiotic; it is essentially food for the good bacteria, thereby enhancing the probiotic benefits of kefir. FOS also increases the body’s absorption of calcium and other minerals. FOS’ health benefits have been confirmed in clinical studies by the prestigious Dunn Clinical Nutrition Centre in Cambridge, England, and other leading academic institutions in Europe, the United States and Japan.

Kefir promotes high levels of vitamin B12, is an excellent source of calcium, a good source of protein and contains low levels of lactose.

Company Overview:

Helios Nutrition is a socially and environmentally responsible company that was founded to bring you delicious, scientifically-based food products that promote a sense of wholeness and well-being.  We strive to bring you the highest quality organic, functional  foods that combine the latest findings in nutritional research with traditional foods associated with healthy living.

Celebration of Health, Organic Products, and Sustainable Agriculture: More than 2500 years ago, Hippocrates wrote: “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.”  Central to Helios Nutrition’s corporate vision is the belief that each of us can promote good health and prevent disease through proper nutrition.  Hippocrates belief in the healing force of nature –Naturae vis Medicatrix– is the centerpiece of our corporate vision. In his honor, we chose the name Helios to celebrate the mythological Greek god of the sun. A traditional symbol of health, nurturing, growth, and celebration in many cultures, the sun also represents our commitment to organic products.

Helios Nutrition has a commitment to:

  • Organic foods
  • A healthy environment
  • Healthy farming and production practices
  • Fair prices paid to farmers
  • Healthy rural communities
  • Healthy scientific research
  • Healthy corporate workplace practices

To our loyal customers: Could you be our eyes and ears?  If your store is out of stock, let us know and we will try to get them new supplies.  If your favorite store doesn’t carry our kefir, let us know.  We have a small sales team and can’t reach every store by ourselves, so your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank-you!

If you’re like all of us at Helios Nutrition, you discovered kefir through some magical connection: a friend or relative; a chance encounter with an elderly woman operating a kefir stand on the streets of Moscow; riding a bicycle on a rainy day in Slovenia and seeking shelter at a café; sitting next to a kefir fanatic smuggling kefir grains in a juice bottle on a transatlantic flight to New York.  Somehow, the kefir bugs found you and got you to tell everyone about them. Tell us your story.

For you kefir fans, we ask your help.  We are a young company with a great corporate mission.  Let’s spread the word about Helios Nutrition’s Organic Kefir with FOS. Here are some simple facts to pass on to your friends, relatives, and strangers at the dairy case:

  • Kefir is a probiotic : it contains live bacteria that are beneficial to your health
  • FOS is a prebiotic : it provides food for your own beneficial bifidobacteria and may increase their numbers by more than five-fold
  • Helios Nutrition’s organic kefir with FOS is:
  • High in calcium (30% of RDI)
  • High in protein
  • Made with organic milk
  • Made with authentic kefir cultures
  • Contains billions of live bacteria per serving, or more than 1000 times the level found in many yogurts
  • Made by a wonderful company
  • Tastes GREAT!!
  • Or, you can say: “Helios Nutrition’s organic kefir with FOS is a traditional, healing food with a new flair!”
