Building up your gut flora with sauerkraut

WP_001052

Without an healthy digestive system it can be difficult for your body to absorb the nutrients it needs to thrive.  This leads your body to say, “hey I need more nutrients” and you respond by eating more and still not absorbing the nutrients you need leading to weight gain and still not looking/feeling healthy.  Can help restore beneficial bacteria to your digestive system and build a healthier mucosal lining in your gut.

Now before you head off to the grocery store to buy yourself a tub of sauerkraut, if it comes in a jar most likely it has been cooked killing all the beneficial bacteria…assuming it was actually fermented to begin with. Some sauerkraut is sold as basically cabbage soaked in vinegar, though it may taste similar it does not have the added health benefits.

You should be able to find some genuine sauerkraut at a specialty store but given the 3-4 week fermentation time to produce it can be quite expensive.  Good news making sauerkraut is very easy to make yourself.

At a dose of 1/4 cup a day you will heal your “leaky gut” and begin to restore your digestive system to the way it was meant to be. 

Can’t stand the taste of sauerkraut?  Not a problem as always there is a supplement for that, once that I have used myself is Now Foods Super Enzymes which at less than $10 for 180 tablets is another way to quickly get some probiotics into your system to restore your gut lining.
