Fermented foods are a wonderful source of beneficial bacteria in the best shape. Probiotics in capsules are deposited in the upper part of the digestive system and often do not reach the bowel, while fermented foods will carry good bacteria to the very end of the digestive tract.
The fermentation carries out a preliminary "digestion" of food, making it easier to digest. That's why fermented foods are easier to digest in people with damaged intestines. Fermentation releases nutrients from food, making them more available to the body: for example sauerkraut contains 20 times more easily digestible vitamin C than fresh.
You can ferment any product. Fermented foods should be introduced gradually beneficial bacteria and natural enzymes in fermented foods can cause an effect of extinction.
Never start more than 1.h.l. any fermented product per day.*
Depending on the severity of the condition, different people can enter the fermented products in different pace. If 1.h.l. there is the effect of extinction, let the reaction calm down a few days and then increase to 2 tsp 2 tsp When well tolerated, add a spoon.
Continue to gradually increase the amount of fermented food, controlling the effect of extinction. Best not to introduce more than one or two of fermented products at the same time. It is usually recommended to start with the homemade yogurt and sauerkraut juice, which often can be introduced at the same time.
*This recommendation applies to people with serious digestive disorders. If you are interested in fermented foods just as a healthy diet, you can eat them as usual always ate sauerkraut and kefir.
Sauerkraut is an ancient food that help in digestion and detoxification. First, use only the juice, and then gradually introduce into the diet very cabbage. Sauerkraut stimulates stomach acid and helps digestion. Most patients with digestive disorders suffer from a decrease in the production of acid.
Sauerkraut does not need the addition of bacteria for fermentation because all these bacteria live on the surface of the cabbage. Don't forget to add natural salt (in any case not jodirovannuju) before the fermentation: salt will inhibit the reproduction of putrefactive bacteria as long as bacteria will produce sufficient acid to neutralize them.
It is also important to carefully peremat cabbage in a bowl with your hands, until then, until the cabbage and carrots will not give enough juice (the salt also will help with this), so that all the cabbage as a result of the fermentation is fully submerged in the juice. If not enough juice, add water to cover all the cabbage liquid. If the cabbage is exposed to air, instead of fermenting it will rot.The fermenting vegetables with whey
