An unexpected superfood
The Probiotic Powerhouse
Good bacteria for health
Many people are aware that maintaining “good bacteria” is a great way to keep the digestive tract healthy. Trillions of good little bacteria clean up the system, can help with many digestive ailments, and aid in digestion.
Most of us have learned the yogurt is the best source of these good bacteria, also called probiotics. But is that true? Besides the problems with commercial milk products, most yogurts are filled with sugar or artificial sweeteners that counteract the benefits of the good bacteria.
Fermented foods have been around for centuries in many cultures. Fermentation is the original method of preserving foods. What a surprise to find out that this traditional, whole fermented food is one of the best sources of probiotics around.
