The gate keeper that decides what gets in and what stays out!
If the gut lining is damaged or has a predominance of bad bacteria in the gut as opposed to good bacteria, then toxins can sneak through the gut wall and enter the blood stream, causing havoc to body and skin.
The gut or gastrointestinal system, refers to the long hollow tube that stretches from the tip of your tongue… right down to your rectum.
“Dysbiosis” refers to a state of imbalance among the colonies of microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, viruses, parasites, etc.) within your body.
The health and quality of skin is strongly linked to the health of the gut.
Enter: Sauerkraut Juice / Sauerkraut Saft / fermented cabbage juice / brine / kvass (sour beverage).
- To avoid any reactions introduce Sauerkraut juice gradually, starting from 1 teaspoon a day for 2-5 days, then 3-4 teaspoons a day for 2-5 days and so on until you can add a few tablespoons of the rich probiotic tonic into meals. Best not to heat or you will kill the good bacteria.
