Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
Eating fermented foods has the ability to clarify and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. Think about your beauty as an expression of your health, not just the result of applying products to your skin. Focus on what’s happening internally to glow externally.
Just pause a moment and let that sink in!
A healthy gut full of diverse gut bugs is a precursor of a healthy body and soul. If you feel well you look well, some might say, radiant! Having a good lifestyle is reflected in the quality of your skin. Fermented foods have remained hidden in the beauty toolbox for thousands of years. Traditional dishes like Sauerkraut and Kimchi can help in the prevention and treatment of both acne and wrinkles. Probiotics can also help you slim down as balancing your microflora can reduce cravings for carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol. Yes, the answer seems to lie within, not on the surface.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics, consumed in fermented foods, are a potent form of anti-ageing that can reduce inflammatory skin conditions and boost the skins overall health. This addition to your diet can result in giving you a glowing complexion. Probiotics help you digest and better assimilate the nutrients from your food, which means your skin receives more of the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals it needs to be healthy. It's much harder to look and feel good when you're tired, consuming probiotics boosts your immune system and makes digestion easier. In the end, you have more energy to look your best!
Research into fermented products is a growing market due to the impact probiotics have on our health. Emerging research suggests that gut microbes also affect the hormones that regulate our metabolism such as Leptin which is particularly known for limiting appetite. In addition to influencing our thirst for sugar the pathogenic bacteria, the bad guys, may also make it more difficult for some people to feel full. If you don’t register that you are full when eating it can lead to overeating and subsequent weight gain.
So, consider adding these fermented foods and beverages to a diet of nutritious, whole foods. You'll be feeling and looking better in no time. Consuming fermented foods will help to build the gut ecosystem within your body which will bring you into balance, prevent disease and allow you to radiate your inner beauty and health.
