For people who want to be healthy, eating fermented foods such as kvass, kefir and sauerkraut is a great option because they provide our digestive system with healthy gut bacteria. Fermented foods go through the process of fermentation where the natural bacteria feed on the starch and sugar in the food hence creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food and creates beneficial, Omega-3-fatty acids and various strains of probiotics.
These foods have significant benefits to the body which range from boosting the immune system, easing the irritable bowel syndrome, help in digesting and assimilation of food and are beneficial for those with autism. The main benefits associated with fermented foods is that they help with any kind of gastrointestinal problems.
Living in the world of convenience we are used to today, we see most people are prone to taking vitamins or probiotic supplements in pill form in order to achieve a higher level of health. These supplements are marketed as ways to increase the body’s intake of much-needed nutrients. What people fail to realize is that most of the content of these vitamins are not absorbed and are expelled from the body. This is why you might have bright yellow or bright orange urine after taking your daily dose of vitamins.
With probiotic supplements, it has been a concern that there are not enough live bacteria in the capsules to make it through the stomach and into the rest of the digestive system and those that do make it, are typically not enough to make any difference. The fact is that fermented foods contain a significant amount more good bacteria and are more likely to make it into our guts. 1 16oz jar contains more than 8 bottles of 100 count probiotics.
Here are some reasons why fermented foods are better than probiotics or vitamins:
When you regularly eat fermented foods, you really don’t need to take any supplements or vitamins. Fermented foods contain most of the required maximum nutrients and probiotic boost the body needs.
