All the fermented foods

Nutrition Tip Tuesday

By eating fermented foods you are supporting your digestion aaand repopulating your microbiome with good bacteria.  What does this mean?  I am so glad you asked..

  • increase in ¬†stomach acid to help break down foods – less gas, bloating, and indigestion yay!
  • strengthens the good bacteria in the gut – fights pathogenic bacteria that can make you sick
  • increases intestinal strength – leaky gut leads to all kinds of terrible like IBS, lowered immune system, inflammation, and autoimmune flare ups
  • strengthens the immune system – Wahoo!
  • replenishes gut flora – increases absorption of nutrients and fights toxins
  • makes super awesome bowel movements – YAS
  • reduces sugar cravings – yeasts and bad bacteria scream for sugar and by strengthening good bacteria in the gut you are shushing those sugar cray cravings
