Last week I promised you more great information on how Cultured Vegetables Help your Brain Power.
We have heard that we are what we eat, but more accurately we are what we assimilate. Every illness is related to digestion and assimilation. Basically, fermented or cultured foods are foods that have been through a process of lactofermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.
When you optimize the good bugs in the gut ( probiotics) through eating cultured and fermented foods you improve your digestion, immune system, mood, and brain power. You repair the “leaky gut and the probiotics (cultured foods) produce the neurotransmitter acetyl-choline which helps learning and memory. Autism, ADD celiac disease, fibromylagia, cancer and other auto immune issues have benefited and in some cases been eliminated by eating cultured foods. Cultured foods include yogurt, cottage cheese, whey, kefir, sauerkraut, pickled cucumbers, beets, beans radishes, tempeh, miso, kombucha tea and korean kimchi.
