Dr. Mercola Interviews Caroline Barringer (You Tube clip below). Learn how "reseeding" your gut with fermented foods and probiotics may be one of the most important steps you can take to improve your health. Poor diet and antibiotics can wipe out the beneficial bacteria in your gut, giving pathogens free rein to proliferate unchecked. Historically, people used to get large quantities of beneficial bacteria, i.e. probiotics, straight from their diet in the form of fermented or cultured foods. Each mouthful of fermented food can provide trillions of beneficial bacteria--far more than you can get from a probiotics supplement. Fermented foods are cost effective, easier than you might think to make, and give you a wider variety of beneficial bacteria.
