Boost your immune health with homemade sauerkraut


When we eat unpasteurised, freshly fermented vegetables, such as sauerkraut and kimchi, we are giving our immune system as well as our gut a big health boost.

Sauerkraut contains numerous species of Lactobacillus, and more recently it's been discovered that it also contains species of Weissella alongside other beneficial bacteria. Recent research confirms that many of these bacteria are of particular benefit to our gut health and to strengthening our immune system.

The prebiotic inulin, found in onions, garlic, bananas, Jerusalem artichokes, chicory, is also a perfect booster for gut and immune health. Prebiotics are the food of our good gut bacteria.

Making your own sauerkraut, fermented kale, sprouts and other vegetable ferments is easy when you understand how.  Come to my online Workshop this Saturday (also available as a recording). Details on my Fermentation page
