All well and good, but did you know that eating fermented food improves your mood. Decrease anxiety and actually is a anti depressant. It is true. Apparently the probiotic bacteria communicate with the brain by way of the vagus nerve. We know this because when the vagus nerve is severed the anti depressant effect stops.

They reduce inflammation and that reduces pain. They reduce cravings and that means sweets. (You do know that surgar and carbs cause inflammation and heart disease). And frequently there is a weight loss because of this factor. Constipation goes away.
