The Body Ecology Diet was designed to help you create a digestive system that functions flawlessly. We do this by incorporating fermented foods that are rich in the beneficial microflora your body craves to strengthen your immunity, balance your mood, and prevent and release illness. These compounds also help to make your food more easily digestible and absorbable so that you can best benefit from the nutrients that you eat.
When you have a healthy and balanced digestive system, you will not only feel better, but everyday stress will be much easier to handle. So, before you dine out or pack a cooler for your next summer picnic, start out by asking yourself, “Am I eating right for my digestive system?”
A little help from digestive enzymes at your meal saves energy and assimilates the nutrients from your food much faster. This means you have more energy for having fun!
It's no secret that fermented foods are the easiest foods for you to digest, and they work even further to promote healthy digestion of all of the other foods that you eat. In fact, they are considered pre-digested because their beneficial bacteria have consumed sugars and broken down nutrients so that your body can quickly absorb them.
Fermented foods may also be called cultured foods or probiotic foods.
However, unlike probiotic pills, properly fermented foods contain bacteria that are hardier and better able to colonize in your gut. When you ferment foods with hearty culture starters that contain probiotics like Lactobacillus Plantarum, you also help protect yourself against viral infections and the side effects of antibiotics.
The great news for you to know is that you can easily enjoy fermented foods when you travel with these simple tips:
Did you know that CocoBiotic can be shipped to your hotel for you, and that you can also use it to ferment your own coconut water, nut milks and veggie juices while on the road? It’s true. Don’t miss out on the benefits of fermented drinks while you are away. Use CocoBiotic to start your next batch. Simply add ¼ cup of CocoBiotic per quart of vegetable juice or raw nut/grain milk and allow it to ferment for 24 hours in a sterile glass bottle or jar.
