Ready to bolster your immune system?

Fermented foods are considered functional foods due to their ability to increase the levels of several functional components, such as vitamins, peptides and antioxidant compounds. The living microbes generate new bio actives by modulating the gut microbiota.  A healthy microbiome is believed to be important for immunity, cognitive functions, mood, and general health and wellness.

Fermented foods are preserved using an age-old process that not only boosts the food’s shelf life and nutritional value but can give your body a dose of healthful probiotics — live micro­organisms crucial to good digestion.

  • The digestive tract is teeming with some 100 trillion bacteria and other microorganisms, says Dr David S. Ludwig, a professor of nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
  • Research today is revealing the importance of a diverse and healthy intestinal microbiome (the microbial community in the gut) because it plays a role in fine-tuning the immune system and wards off damaging inflammation inside the body, which may lead to conditions ranging from obesity and diabetes to neurodegenerative diseases.
  • “It’s a very exciting, dynamic area of research,” says Dr Ludwig.

Antimicrobial properties

  • Lactobacilli isolated from fermented plant products, particularly kimchi, have antimicrobial properties due to the production of antimicrobial compounds during the fermentation process.
  • These probiotic lactobacilli protect against pathogens such as Escherichia coliListeria monocytogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus

How to make KIMCHI

Weight Loss

A study showed that consuming fermented kimchi altered gut microbiota composition and reduced the Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes ratio, a biomarker for obesity, while fresh kimchi consumption showed no change.

CARROT RELISH

  • Grate 4 cups of organic carrot (orange + yellow) 1 tablespoon grated ginger + 2 tablespoons Himalayan salt and massage until you have heaps of juice to cover the carrots – if you prefer you can make a brine.
  • Leave for the fermenting fairies to do magic, at room temperature for 3 days.
  • To please the palate of any carrot-loving bunny … add to a raw nut / kefir smoothie … with sprouted or activated pecan butter or 1 1/4 cups activated pecans, part of a Ploughman’s lunch or a Sunset Soup will make a delicious starter.
