Why Ferment?

Probiotics play a key role in helping you build a balanced gut microbiome. Beyond probiotic supplements, fermented foods are a natural way to work probiotics into your diet, and the options are both plentiful and enjoyable. 

From sauerkraut to kimchi, from kombucha to kvass, fermented foods are a nutritional powerhouse that should work their way onto your plate every day.

Fermented foods are also said to maintain the integrity of the gut lining, balance the body’s pH, serve as natural antibiotics, antivirals and antifungals, regulate immunity, control inflammation, facilitate the excretion of toxins, and increase the bio-availability of vitamins and minerals.

There is a wealth of information available on the microbiome and the benefits of fermented foods. Here are links to some of our favourite sites:
