Why You Should Eat More Fermented Foods

fermented foods

You can’t turn on the TV for more than an hour without watching a commercial that sells a product that aims to resolve digestive issues. While supplements are great, simply add more fermented foods to your diet to achieve the exact same benefits.

A Natural Source Of Probiotics

Whether speaking of vitamins or any other essential nutrients, any time you can consume what your body needs from a natural source—the better! Probiotic foods contain microflora that does everything from improving overall digestion, shielding against harmful bacteria, reducing your risk of food poisoning, boosting your immunity, regulating your appetite, and promoting a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria. This isn’t something you see, but is certainly something you can feel.

Where Can You Find Fermented Foods?

I know, the name alone might not sound appealing, but odds are you have enjoyed many fermented foods over the years. Just a few to consider include:

  • Pickles
  • Kimchee
  • Sauerkraut
  • Kiefer
  • Kombucha
  • Miso
  • Tempeh
  • Organic apple cider vinegar

Keep trying different fermented food products until you find a few you love. Check with your local farmers and also consider learning how to pickle and can store-bought or garden fresh vegetables to enjoy year-round!
