Tip of the Day

Fermented foods can help balance your gut microbiome–those microorganisms living in the gut. While many of the good bacteria from fermented foods might be killed by stomach acid, fermented foods can still provide health benefits from their byproducts including B vitamins, organic acids, and functional peptides. These help keep your immune system strong and your body happy.
