Fermented Foods Are A Revelation…

If you’re like me, you hear a LOT about foods and supplements you “should” be taking every day.

And sometimes it’s just easier to eat what’s fast, cheap, and often low-quality.

But what happens then?

Your waistline expands… your brain gets foggy… and you may even battle with illness you would otherwise have been able to kick!

That’s why I’m a huge fan of fermented foods.

Fermented foods have been around for hundreds of years.

They’re an awesome way to preserve foods while increasing their positive effect on your body, especially with regards to digestion.

Fermented foods are packed with beneficial bacteria.

And even if you don’t have a “Whole Foods” budget you can easily make fermented foods at home!

They Can Also Help You Lose Weight…

Probiotics from fermented foods can help you lose weight.

Researchers have found that women lost TWICE as much weight as their non-probiotic peers by consuming Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, a strain of lactic acid bacteria in probiotics.

Merely by taking two probiotic pills per day over 12 weeks, they lost a total of 11 POUNDS!

The study’s press release indicates:

“[P]robiotics may act by altering the permeability of the intestinal wall. By keeping certain pro-inflammatory molecules from entering the bloodstream, they might help preventing the chain reaction that leads to glucose intolerance, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.”

They May Even Make You Smarter…

Finding your brain a little foggy?

It may not be a problem with your brain… it may be your gut!

Antibiotics, sugar in our diets, processed foods and stress in our lives can all cause an imbalance of our gut flora.

To combat an unhealthy gut, eat more:

  • Sauerkraut and kimchi,
  • Tempeh
  • Miso
  • Kombucha
  • Kefir
  • Sourdough bread…

Just to name a few!

I personally love to drink Kombucha and take a teaspoon of Sauerkraut every time I think of it.  (I keep Bubbie’s sauerkraut in my fridge at all times!!)

If you’re in a city, you can likely find stores that sell Kimchi, especially in Korean grocery stores like “H-Mart”.

Although I live in a rural area, I am able to find fresh Kimchi in my local grocery store often, but sometimes I purchase a refrigerated version in a glass jar as well.

Another Trick To Lose Weight, Boost The Brain, and Fight Stress!

Do you know what else balances your gut, helps you lose weight, and even makes your brain more effective and sharp?

SlimTea, of course!

SlimTea is packed with flavonoids, for instance.

Flavonoids are powerful little antioxidants that have a host of health benefits.

A Cambridge study shows flavonoids, may exert beneficial effects in the central nervous system by protecting neurons against stress induced injury, promoting synaptic plasticity, memory and cognitive function.

In addition, SlimTea contains high amounts of L-Theanine, an amino acid.

This amino acid is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, and has been shown to potentially enhance relaxation, reduce stress (mental and physical), enhance mood, and improve cognition.

And finally, SlimTea helps you shed body fat.

It may not sound like a ton of weight, but burning a pound a week from here until summer can add up to some MAJOR weight loss.
Recently in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine, 102 overweight or obese participants were challenged to drink 8g of Oolong tea each day for 6 weeks.
An astounding 70% of the obese subjects showed a decrease of more than 1kg and 22% more lost more than 3kg.
In addition, 64% of the obese participants and 66% of the overweight participants lost more than 1 kg during the study.
