Chinese Medicine has always stressed the importance of digestion and its influence on our health and wellbeing. One way to promote gastrointestinal health is by eating foods high in good bacteria such as good old Sauerkraut. This simple old age recipe of fermented cabbage is packed full of natural probiotics. Probiotics can help to enhance gut, immune and mood function amongst other things. Just remember to either make it yourself (ideally) or purchase a good quality organic version from the refrigerated section of your local health food store. Don’t buy the cheap store bought shelf stable Sauerkrauts as they have low (if any) good bacteria and may have sugar and other preservatives in them.
