Alive and teaming with vital nutrients & beneficial bacteria, ferments are an indispensable nutritional staple. Not only is fermentation a source of preservation, but it also begins the process of pre-digestion by breaking down food into more accessible forms to digest. It is especially beneficial for foods that are otherwise considered indigestible such as soybeans, which are largely indigestible without fermentation. Once fermented though they become highly digestible and their rich protein reserves become accessible in products such as soy sauce, miso, and tempeh. Ferments are also able to break down toxic compounds found in some vegetables and are known for being high sources of antioxidants & natural probiotics. All of which contribute to the eradication of free radicles and to the healthy development of the gut microbiome.Water Kefir | is a refreshing lacto-fermented probiotic beverage inoculated with live active cultures & yeasts. Water kefir is made with water kefir grains (which are not true grains & do not contain gluten), and a water based liquid such as sugar water, fruit juice, or coconut water. As the water kefir ferments, it develops a complex network of beneficial microorganisms that can greatly improve the health of the colon and entire gastrointestinal tract as well as boost immune functions. If consumed on a regular basis the beneficial bacteria will begin to coat the lining of the intestines, improving overall gut flora & health.
