Sauerkraut For Thriving Health

Sauerkraut For Thriving Health

Sauerkraut is simply fermented cabbage… but this affordable and easily accessible food has a lot more health benefits than meets the eye. Created over 2,000 years ago, Sauerkraut has grown heavily in popularity over the past few years.

This simple but powerful food contains probiotics that are vital for optimal digestive health.

Whilst more research is needed into the exact types of beneficial bacteria found in sauerkraut, we do know that they ‘feed’ the good bacteria in your gut and can help to combat inflammation.

Research has shown that probiotics help to reduce some digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation and may be beneficial to those suffering from conditions such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.

Optimal digestive health = optimal overall health!

Research into the importance of good gut bacteria is growing every day and the findings indicate how probiotics from cultured foods such as sauerkraut may reduce the risk of a number of conditions from depression to Alzheimer’s. Pretty crazy stuff!

This fermented goodness also contains enzymes that help the body to break down food into smaller, more easily digestible molecules which then helps the body to absorb more nutrients.

Sauerkraut for the immune system

Believe it or not, almost all of our immune system is found in our gut! So, considering Sauerkraut is full of gut-loving properties it makes sense that it goes hand in hand to boost your immune system

All of that good bacteria that Sauerkraut contains assists in keeping the lining of the digestive system strong and healthy. This means that it stops any unwanted toxins from coming (or “leaking”) into your body, therefore, this same bacteria may also support your natural antibodies and reduce your risk of infection.

When we consume fermented foods on a regular basis scientific evidence suggests it may assist in reducing your risk of infection, as well as aiding in faster recovery from viruses.

Sauerkraut is also loaded with Vitamin C and iron, both of which boost the immune system and help the body fight against infection.

Sauerkraut also contains vitamin K2, which plays an important role in maintaining optimal bone health.

Vitamin K2 activates two proteins that bind to calcium (the main mineral found in bones) which may contribute to stronger and healthier bones, this has already been found in several studies.

And most importantly… it’s delicious!

Not only does Sauerkraut provide so many incredible benefits to the body, but it also tastes great!

It can make a perfect addition to any dish. Buddha Bowls, Salads, paired with Veggie Sausages and or Roast, hummus and crackers as a snack, you name it!
