Prebiotics and probiotics are hot topics of nutrition. Research has begun to show benefits of these on gut health. Prebiotics promote the development of “good” bacteria in the gut, while probiotics are the live cultures of “good” bacteria that repopulate in the digestive tract. Why is this important? Our gut is home to many functions in our body, and restoring the “good” bacteria can help to boost our immunity and manage symptoms of digestive disruption. Sauerkraut is a natural form of probiotics! Cleveland Kraut is fermented sauerkraut and can help to restore that good bacteria in our gut, and promote health benefits!
