Fermented Foods from The Better Health Store

The brain and gut are connected, and fermented foods are full of zingy flavors and beneficial bacteria. The Better Health Store sells fermented products like yogurt, sauerkraut, kombucha and tempeh. Shop online or in the store to find a vast selection of herbal, organic and holistic health items.

            Fermented foods are created by the introduction of natural bacteria. The fermentation process reduces bad bacteria and allows for fermented food to last longer and grow good bacteria. They may reduce heart disease risk and aid digestion, immunity and weight loss. Many contain probiotics because they are added or they naturally occur in the food.

            While fermented foods and beverages have become increasingly popular and mainstream, they have been part of the human diet for centuries. The fermentation process was originally a way to preserve foods, improve flavor and eliminate food toxins. Today, more people are turning to these foods for their potential health benefits.
