Fermentation is a natural metabolic process that occurs when bacteria break down foods, turning proteins & carbohydrates into amino acids and creating easily absorbable nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, and digestive enzymes.
This means that the bacteria are actually pre-digesting the food so the nutrient value is available for instant absorption by our bodies, and our digestive system doesn’t need to do any work to break the food down. If food is too hard to digest, and we don’t have the bacteria in our gut to help with the process, this is when we run into digestive and gastro intestinal disorders.
Fermentation is a key factor in getting the best out of the food we eat. Through this process the bacteria change the original food into a nutrient dense form of the food.
It is important to understand bacteria’s role in the fermentation process but also in our digestive process. In our gut, one of the main things that breaks food down is bacteria, turning it into amino acids & nutrients which our bodies can then use. If you want to get the best out of your food, and eliminate digestive issues, it is vital that you take a good quality, living probiotic such as Immunity Fuel.
