Appreciated, I said I wouldn’t be touching supplements until the basics are covered, but hear me out… You need sufficient good bacteria for full digestion.
"It's not what goes into your mouth that counts, it's what makes it into your blood stream..."
Your body has to produce enzymes, and believe it or not, this is actually quite a taxing process. When a source of enzymes is included in the diet your body doesn’t have to work as hard, freeing up more energy for movement, your immune system, recovery, etc... As an example, the Eskimos found that when they fed their dogs fermented fish they could run all day - when they fed them fresh fish they couldn’t… So naturally the Eskimo people all started consuming fermented fish and fermented fish liver oils...
*The most physically perfect races on earth (Eskimo, Maori, etc) all regularly consumed some type of fermented foods - for more information, read: Nutrition And Physical Degeneration - Dr Weston A. Price*
In addition to stacks more energy, further benefits of consuming fermented foods / probiotics include but are not limited to: enhanced immunity - a healthy gut will absorb more nutrients than an unhealthy one. Probiotics have been shown to reverse ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and other gut inflammations that occur from a lack of sufficient probiotics. Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity issues/symptoms can be managed far better by adding probiotics. Probiotics have been shown to improve colon function. A healthy gut flora balance has been shown to help prevent cancer by nourishing enzymes that inhibit tumor production throughout the body, and so on and so forth… And for those who want to look great naked, a Japanese study found that those who increased their probiotic intake for four weeks lost 8.2% belly fat…
Good sources include fermented cod liver oil, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, certain types of yogurt and aged cheeses… Raw foods are very beneficial - eggs, unpasteurized dairy, etc... But the easiest and most palatable it probably a probiotic supplement.
