Love Your Guts: Fermentation!

Fermentation the ancient way to keep you healthy!
Keeping the gut microbiota (all the bacteria, viruses, parasites, and yeasts) in a healthy balance is a fine art and makes your diet the most powerful tool to keep it that way. (“The gut microbiome: How does it affect your health?)
Four key facts about food fermentation
- Probiotics: eating fermented foods and drinking fermented drinks like kefir and kombucha will introduce beneficial bacteria into your digestive system and keep the gut bacteria in a healthy balance.
- Better food absorption: when the gut bacteria are properly balanced and enough digestive enzymes are available, the nutrients in the foods you eat are much better absorbed. Certain nutrients are even unlocked during the fermentation process (like activated nuts and sprouts).
- Budget-friendly: incorporating healthy foods into your diet can get expensive, but not so with fermented foods. It can be as costly as a head of cabbage: next to nothing!
- Easy food preservation: homemade salsa only lasts a few days in the fridge – but fermented homemade salsa lasts months! The same goes for sauerkraut, pickles, beets and other garden foods.
