ARE YOU SUFFERING WITH SYMPTOMS SUCH AS BLOATING, STOMACH CRAMPS OR CONSTIPATION?

Then you have probably started to consider your overall gut health and what you can do to improve it. Our knowledge of the importance of good gut health can be traced back over 2500 years when Greek physician Hippocrates stated, “All disease begins in the gut”. Today, modern science is discovering that our internal gut microbiome is responsible for our natural immunity to the world around us to plays a key role in our overall sense of mood and well-being.

The western approach towards all bacteria being bad and it's over usage of antibiotics has led to an unbalance in the natural ecosystems in which humans and bacteria have co-existed alongside each other since the dawn of our own time. Our fear of bacteria and almost nuclear response to removing it from all areas of our lives has left us in a pretty sorry state of affairs. By embracing the bacteria around us and learning to live in harmony we can once again restore the natural balance of this fragile ecosystem.

After all, like it or not our bodies contain trillions of bacteria. By killing them we are literally killing ourselves.

SO HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY GUT HEALTH?

By introducing a diet rich in probiotic bacteria and high fibre prebiotic foods we can begin to restore the natural balance of the gut microbiome and in return restore our overall health. A diet high in a variety of fermented foods is without a doubt the most gut-friendly thing you can do for yourself.

The old saying you are what you eat really rings true when it comes to a healthy gut microbiome. The Western diet of heavily processed foods often high in sugar and sweeteners and pumped full of preservatives and bacteria-killing additives has really thrown our natural microbiome bacteria out of balance. We have become intolerant to the food we eat, overweight from the sugar thrown into it and overall, in a bad way with not only our physical health but also our mental state of mind. With obesity and mental health problems at an all-time high, it’s clear for everyone to see how the link between the food we are choosing to eat and the health problems surrounding us.

OUR MISSION HERE AT FRESHLY FERMENTED:

We got obsessed with gut health around 5 years ago and since then we have made it our mission to offer a fantastic range of starter cultures to allow you to ferment your own gut-friendly probiotic-rich foods at home. It’s sustainable and simple and we try and do everything with as little impact on our environment as possible.

Sure, it’s a bit weird and some of this stuff tastes weirder than it looks. So, think of this as medicine. Take off your western hat and that disgust at this slimy thing in the jar and take the Eastern approach of respecting a medicine that’s been honoured and made the way it always has by a small team of gut passionate people on the south coast of the UK.

We care about the traditions and intended usage of these wonderful bacteria. So put down your stevia laden supermarket kombucha, throw away your drinking yoghurt flavoured kefir and embrace the real, traditional versions of these wonderful medicines and start your journey towards a healthy gut today!
