Fermented Foods That Are Good For Your Gut
One of the best ways to support a healthy gut and digestive system is to consume probiotic-rich foods! This helps feed the good bacteria in our body that helps keep us healthy.
Great examples of these types of foods/drinks are called Fermented or Cultured foods.
Fermented Foods are foods (and some beverages) that have been produced/preserved through anaerobic conditions. The process converts carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms.
HERE ARE EXAMPLES OF THESE GUT FRIENDLY FOODS!
Kimchi is an excellent source of probiotics! It's made from fermented cabbage and is similar to sauerkraut with an added kick & Korean spices. Kimchi is also rich in antioxidants.
