You’ve probably already heard that probiotics can give your body the extra support it needs to get the most nutrients from your food and build up your immune system. Have you heard the term "gut health" but not known where to start?
GUT HEALTH IS ALL ABOUT ROUTINE
Building up your gut health is like brushing your teeth, it only takes a few minutes a day but the results are immediate and easily recognizable!
Stress, poor diet, medication, illness, and aging are the most well-known gut enemies. Adding probiotics from fermented organic vegetables is the best way to fuel the bacteria in your microbiome to be strong against those daily offenders.
A HEALTHY GUT IS A HEALTHY MICROBIOME
A microbiome is a collection of all the bacteria that inhabit our digestive system. A healthy and diverse microbiome can directly affect the wellbeing of their host (YOU)! But don't just take our word for it, here is a quote from an article published by the Harvard University Health department
"Microbes in the lower intestinal tract help us digest food, fight harmful bacteria, and regulate the immune system. But sometimes an imbalance of microbes occurs, leading to diarrhea and other health problems.”
WHO WORKS HARDEST FOR YOU BESIDES YOU?
Here at Farmhouse Culture, we use one of the oldest and most traditional methods of fermenting and the bacterial strains involved in the fermentation process vary depending on the naturally occurring bacteria on the cabbage, but you can find the most prominent strains of bacteria listed on the packaging of each specific product. The following good bacterial strains are commonly found in our products:
- Lactobacillus pentosus/plantarum, which has been shown to improve immune function.
- Lactobacillus paraplantarum, which can help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
- Lactobacillus koreensis, which may have cholesterol reducing abilities.
- Lactobacillus brevis, which can help keep good bacteria growing in your gut.
- Lactobacillus hammesii, which can promote antifungal activity.
