Beneficial microbes have been living inside the human (and animal and insect) gastrointestinal tract since the beginning of time. Eating a diet rich in fermented foods, which contain massive amounts of beneficial microbes, or probiotics, is essential for optimal health.
Probiotic supplements can help, but most probiotics die before they reach the consumer. Making your own fermented foods and drink is a much more reliable and less expensive way to add probiotics to any health protocol.
Any vegetable can be fermented, along with apples and other fruits.
