Lacto fermented vegetables (anaerobic fermentation) such as this delicious sauerkraut will keep your resident gut buddies, otherwise known as your gut microbiota, or intestinal flora thriving, fed and happy. Absolutely teaming with LIVE probiotics (in particular, lactobacillus microbe) and enzymes, these are essential for good gut bacteria proliferation and to activate enzymes in your colon in order to aid digestion. These veggies contain far more probiotics than a pill both in quantity and variety. Lactic acid benefits include: Stabilises blood sugar (great for diabetics), corrects the Ph of the colon and the body, increases digestion, supports flora, immune support (lactic acid makes the good bacteria thrive and starves off the bad), supports leaky gut, increases metabolism (poor digestion prevents weight loss) and decreases the bad bacteria, yeast and mould. Also, lacto-fermented vegetables increase your mood and decreases anxiety and depression, as serotonin is made in the gut. Clinical studies and trials show that the gut and our brain are inextricably linked, which is a very exciting and evolving field.
From a culinary standpoint, these are super easy and cheap to make and you can create your own personal favourite flavours. With just two ingredients and fermentation time it is actually quite amazing that we can the ultimate food for our gut buddies to thrive on!! Once you make one of my lacto-fermented vegetable recipes (this sauerkraut or my kimchi) you will see how easy it is and wonder why you haven’t before! Not only that, but your resident good gut bacteria will thank you!
