Hi! People around me have been really ill this autumn and winter. One after one they have succumb to flu, pneumonia and nasty colds. Not once have I picked up any of them and I’m sure it’s due eating at least 1/2 cup of fermented vegetables a day and drinking a small glass of either water kefir or kombucha every day. It is so easy to ferment at home, sure you need a little bit of patience, but you are growing your own healthy bacteria and they need a bit of time to flourish. More and more research points to the importance of healthy gut flora. I’m convinced we will see even more breakthroughs in this area in the coming years.
