How Can Kefir, Kombucha, Sauerkraut improve your wellbeing and lead to a longer and happier life

Bacteria might sound like a scary word but that fear is irrational. These Probiotics will help you in your journey to a healthier, longer and happier life.

If anything abounds in nature, it's bacteria. 90% of the cells in our bodies are of bacterial origin. Without the human microbiota, we would not be able to have healthy growth, protection against body invaders or healthy digestion. It’s even responsible for regulating moods.

Here’s where probiotics come in. Found mainly in fermented foods, they are very beneficial for your gut health.

Probiotics are the link between fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, and kombucha. They are authentic living foods that are adapted to our bodies. These wonderful soldiers remain active in the body, design their strategies, and have an agenda: to prevent bacteria that are harmful to our health.

1. Sauerkraut

Fermented from cabbage

Sauerkraut is a fermented product derived from cabbage that is very common in Eastern European cuisine. During fermentation, bacteria and yeasts in the cabbage meet up with the sugars that are released by the fermentation process. The consequence of that battle is lactic acid which is a real fuel for the growth of probiotics. They bring many benefits to our intestinal flora, restoring the pH and the balance between acids and alkaline components. And they promote the absorption of nutrients from the body.

2. Kefir

Kefir milk

Water kefir is a drink made from kefir nodules. Kefir made with milk is a common drink in countries like Armenia or Azerbaijan.

The nodules of the water kefir are transparent and very fragile. These nodules are known as Scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast).

The properties of water and milk kefir are identical: many beneficial living bacteria and yeasts. They are probiotics that help you control your intestines and your immune system. Some doctors suggest it for allergies and skin problems.

3. Kombucha

Kombucha drink

One of the most valued probiotic drinks. It has a slightly acidic taste. Kombucha is obtained by the fermentation of tea with sugar. Yeast is added and a result is a large number of probiotics that helps digestion. It’s a fantastic option to replace soda and fizzy drinks and comes with a variety of added flavors. Even though sugar is present in its elaboration,  the final products are quite low in sugars and calories.
