We have evolved with these bacteria for centuries, but we’ve lost touch with them since the advent of refrigeration and misconception about the role of microbes in our health. Our overall health is enhanced when we bring them back into our diet. The bacteria produce beneficial byproducts like vitamins, hormones and anti-inflammatory compounds. They communicate with other bacteria and our cells to keep our gut terrain and overall health in balance.
