About fermented foods:
One of the best ways to improve our immune system and build resistance is through the regular intake of lacto-fermented foods. Fermentation is a time-honoured technique that prolongs the shelf life of highly perishable but highly beneficial foods like fruits and vegetables through the production of lactic acid bacteria with the absence of oxygen. It arrests spoilage and creates an acidic environment that is inhospitable to toxins and pathogens, while also improving the nutrient profile of foods.
