Now, in this video I’ll uncover how to improve your digestion naturally with fermented foods.
Fermented foods are really important to our overall health. And the reason that we want
to include fermented foods into our daily diet is because they have beneficial bacteria.
These beneficial bacteria play a huge role in your overall health when it comes to digestive
health, gut health hormone health, brain health, skin health, and in so many other areas of
your health. We want to make sure that we’re getting these
beneficial bacteria into our daily food regimen. But the other thing that we have to realize
is that most people are not. When we look at the food supply today it’s very clean.
There’s a huge benefit to that, but one of the problems is, because we’re not going out
to our gardens and grabbing food from it on a daily basis, essentially, we are not getting
the proper amount of probiotics that we need to sustain proper health.
There’s a sufficient amount of research out there that shows the amount of beneficial
bacteria that we have in our diet today versus what there used to be is drastically different,
it’s drastically declined. What we’ll do is talk about some different really great fermented
foods that can naturally help you improve your digestion.
Let’s go ahead and start with sauerkraut, and by the way at the end of this video I’ll
teach you which ones are going to be the heavy hitters which ones are going to going to offer
you the most benefit. Sauerkraut right here is basically
a fermented cabbage, really easy to make, we love making this in our home because you
just dice up some cabbage, put it in a mason jar, put some
salt in it and it’s very simple. But the benefits are, first of all it’s going to have digestive
enzymes, it’s going to contain probiotics, and then lastly, it’s also going to be rich
in vitamin C. Really, really, great fermented food here.
Kombucha is another one that we love. Now this came from the Asian culture and essentially
what you’re doing is, you’re taking a tea and you’re putting a bacterial culture in
it and then you’re allowing it to ferment. This is going to not only have some beneficial
bacteria and enzymes in it, but the other thing it’s going to help do is support liver
detox. Really love kombucha because it’s something other than water. If you want to have a good
fermented drink and you don’t want to drink soda, kombucha is a really great alternative.
Water kefir is also great. Now what you do is you take kefir grains, you put it within
water, and then you can make some really delicious tasting fizzy beverages that are flavored
to whatever flavor you prefer. My wife is always making, like, a cream soda one and
different flavors for the kids and they love it. Once again, a really healthy alternative
to soda. Pickles, now pickles are great because they’re
going to be loaded with vitamin K and they’re also going to have that fermented benefit.
Now one of the things we have to be careful about when we look at pickles, is not all
pickles are created equally. We want to make sure that we’re getting fermented pickles
and not just vinegar based pickles. In this whole process of making pickles, they’ll use
vinegar in many cases because it’s easier, less expensive, but you just don’t get the
benefit when it has a vinegar base versus a good fermented base. We want to look for
the fermented pickles over the vinegar-based pickles.
Next here is kimchi. Now kimchi is a lot like sauerkraut, just a little bit different. This
is a spicy Korean dish and essentially, it’s going to have the lactobacillus kimchi, which
is a very beneficial bacteria, which is proven to help digestion quite a bit. Kimchi is another
thing that you can make at home, very simple to make, very delicious. Check that out.
Next on our list here is cheese. Now cheese is something that mostly everybody loves,
as long as you don’t have a problem with dairy. When we look at cheese, first thing that we
want to do is, we want to make sure when it comes to any of our dairy, that we’re getting
a good grass-fed source, we’re getting it from a healthy sustainable farm, but the other
thing that we want to really watch when it comes to cheese, is to make sure that we’re
getting the cheese that actually is rich in probiotics, because not all cheese is rich
in probiotics, just because the probiotics don’t always
survive the cheese making process. Some of these cheese’s include cottage cheese, cheddar
cheese, Gouda cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Those are going to be the four best cheese’s
that you need to use if you want to get the most probiotics out of them. And cheeses also
are loaded with digestive enzymes and lots of different nutrients, so very beneficial
for your overall health. Next is yogurt. Same thing want to make sure
that we’re getting good, whole fat yogurt that is from grass-fed cows, sustainable source,
and yogurt’s awesome. And first of all, kids love yogurt and, that’s one of the things
that we love to give our kids because when it comes to children you want to make sure
that you’re constantly pushing that good bacteria, the good probiotics into their gut. Now a
lot of children out there are on multiple rounds of antibiotics throughout their childhood,
through ear infections, and flus, and things like that. The parents are taking them to
the doctor, they’re putting them on antibiotics, but one of the things that most parents fail
to do is actually go in and get the good beneficial probiotics back to their children. Okay? So,
you’re wiping them out, but you’re not putting anything else back in, and this can be really
devastating to a child’s overall health. It can create allergy issues, it can create gut
issues, and can create a lot of different imbalances for children. It’s very important,
not only yogurt, but all these different fermented foods, it’s good to make sure that you’re
adding it to your whole family’s daily regimen. Yogurt’s awesome, lots of probiotics within
that. Kefir, now kefir is basically where you take
a milk and then you put kefir grains in it, almost
like the process of making kefir water. Now kefir milk is going to be really beneficial,
because not only can you use cow’s milk, but you can use goat’s milk, you can use coconut
milk, there’s a lot of different ones out there. You can make this at your home, or
you can buy it. Now, I will tell you when you look at buying
any of the stuff in stores, it tends to be a little bit more expensive. Now you can make
some of it very easily and very inexpensively in your own home. When it comes to things
like kombucha, very easy. Water kefir, kefir yogurt, you can make these things in your
home. They’re very, very simple, so don’t think that you have to go to the store and
spend a whole bunch of money on it. Or you can just go and make it in your home and save
a boatload of cash. Remember that. Kefir’s great.
Now which ones are the best? If we’re looking for the heavy hitters that are going to offer
you the most digestive enzymes, the most probiotics, and the most bang for the buck, we’re going
to want to think water kefir. Right here, this is very simple and inexpensive to make
in your home. Yogurt, and also regular kefirs. They’re going to be the heavy hitters that
you can utilize. Now of course for me, not only do I use these
as much as I can, but I also take probiotics daily, because I think that it’s very beneficial
to take a probiotic supplement. I’ll go ahead and put a link to the one that I use in the
description below. Now I don’t take a probiotic and do this on a daily basis, but the days
that I’m not focused, and I don’t particularly put the effort into getting these fermented
foods into my daily life, I do use a probiotic. There are over 55,000 articles
stating in our PubMed research database, that you are going to benefit greatly from adding
probiotics into your daily health regimen. You want to do that.
The other thing I’ll do, is I’ll put a link to an eBook where we talk about some of the
top ones that I love to make and how you go about making them. I’ll put that in the
description below, it’s going to teach you how to make things like sauerkraut and kombucha,
some of these different fermented foods that will also be in the description, so be sure
to give this video a thumbs up. If you have any questions put it in the comment section
