A robust, balanced gut microbiome is an important aspect of a healthy gut. In a healthy human being, approximately 6 lbs of beneficial bacteria inhabit the microbiome within the G.I. tract. Beneficial bacteria preform a number of life giving tasks, and without them we probably wouldn’t survive. Eating fermented food is a powerful way to supply the gut with probiotic bacteria to strengthen and bring diversity to the community. Lactic acid found in these foods promote the growth of healthy flora.
