Eating fermented foods is an excellent way to get much needed probiotics into our bodies. The microflora found in fermented foods creates a protective lining for our intestines. It not only shields us from nasty pathogens like E.coli and C.difficile but also aids in digestion and keeps the microbiome in our intestines healthy and balanced. Examples of fermented foods include, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt and raw cheeses. The yogurt should be plain to ensure healthy bacteria, made from full fat (to absorb the minerals) and from grass fed animals (to ensure healthy omega 3’s CLA).
