HealingRadius would like to introduce the amazingness of fermented foods to your diet if they’re not already there. Popular staples like sauerkraut and miso (the ingredient that makes the soup at hibachi-style restaurants so delicious) have all been proven to heal the gut and do great wonders for our health in general.
The fermentation process involves turning carbohydrates and sugars into alcohol or beneficial acids, aka bacteria-boosting agents. Probiotics are found in such fermented foods, which are microorganisms that enhance the good bacteria in the digestive tract, healing a variety of health issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). And when you add fermented foods to your diet, you get a healthy dose of probiotics. We suggest starting with small servings and then working your way up.
