Have you ever wondered about the fascinating world of fermented foods and how they can impact your digestion and overall health?

Fermented foods undergo a process of bacterial and yeast digestion. This makes the nutrients easier for the gut to break down and absorb. Eating fermented vegetables with a meal helps with digestion of the entire meal. Friendly bacteria produce lactic acid as they consume the sugars that are naturally found in raw vegetables, fruits and dairy foods which contributes to the sour taste of fermented foods. Lactic acid released into the gut controls intestinal candida overgrowth. Research also shows that the lactic-acid bacteria in fermented foods stop intestinal inflammation and helps heal a permeable gut lining.

Fermented foods have a long list of benefits. They support healthy digestion, help balance your immune system and can play a very important role in detoxification. Fermented foods contribute to brain health and support positive mental and emotional wellbeing. For a long time, they have been recognized for helping those who eat them live longer, healthier and happier lives.
