Researchers are discovering that good bacteria affect our gut flora and even determines our mood and hormone balance.
Overall, the live bacteria found in raw fermented foods promote the health of our immune system and digestive system.
In modern times, it is much more difficult to maintain the proper amount of gut flora because of all the toxins, medications, and chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Things like antibiotics, food preservatives, pesticides, air pollution and chlorinated water all destroy these good bacteria. Even people suffering from chronic stress will have an imbalance of good bacteria. Once this happens, it paves the way for bad bacteria to take its place. These bad bacteria include parasites, yeast, and fungus.
The only way to prevent bad bacteria from entering your gut is to balance out the good bacteria and make sure it stays there. That way, the good bacteria fight the bad bacteria and keep your immune system and digestive system healthy. By taking naturally fermented probiotics, it is increasing the number of good bacteria which can detoxify your system and help you absorb nutrients more efficiently. If you have been taking too many antibiotics, the probiotics can balance the negative effects of that as well.
