Fermented Foods for Better Gut Health

The gut has been touted as the second brain of the human body and regarded for its pivotal role in overall health and well being. The strengthened awareness in gut health has paved the way for the rich and varied world of fermented foods in gaining a lot of traction. Fermented foods may help in strengthening the gut and the 100 trillion or so bacteria and microorganisms that reside in the digestive tract.

Dr Michael Mosley writes in his book The Clever Guts Diet "One of the reasons why fermented foods are so good for the gut is that, gram for gram, they contain a huge number of different microbes. The microbes in fermented foods are also far more likely than most other bacteria to make it safely down into your colon because they are extremely resistant to acid, having been reared in an acidic environment”.

Along with the health benefits of fermented foods, there’s also the enjoyment in eating them! They add a tantalising tang and zest to your foods. But be warned some supermarket products have been highly pasteurised to the point all the beneficial bacteria have been destroyed. To combat this, make sure to look for natural or wild fermented foods.
