Expert Fermentationist Reveals the One Food We Should All Be Eating [Expert Interview]

I recently had the summerbockprivilege of speaking with well-known Fermentationist, Summer Bock.  Our conversation changed the way I think about fermentation and healing of our gut through natural probiotics.  While people have long understood the benefits of probiotics and fermented foods, it is only recently that science has begun to link the two and really explore the far reaching benefits of healthy bacteria in our guts.

Listen in as Summer reveals the one fermented food we should all be eating daily as a part of our PCOS diet to help heal our gut. The goal is to establish a healthy ecosystem in your gut which contains a balance of good and bad bacteria.  The result will be a stronger immune system, clearer skin, lower sugar cravings and lessened anxiety and depression symptoms.

    I love the idea of probiotics, and I have been taking Align probiotics. As Summer states though you need at least 8 strains of bacteria to balance the gut, and Align does not have 8 strains. Align also has some other pretty scary additives. I am scared to make my own sauerkraut, and I live an hour away from a metropolitan area. I understand consuming the right foods is the best solution, but we only have a Walmart for grocery shopping. So many of the lovely health food options you offer have ingredients that are not across the board for rural Americans YET. Is there a pill form of probiotics you can recommend other than Align? As a result of this post, I have switched to Ultimate Flora which says it has 10 strains of bacteria. Is that correct? I adore your site, Amy. I recommend you on a daily basis. Thank you for all your hard work. It means so much to the rest of us. Summer was an excellent choice for an interview.
