Strong health means a strong gut. The gut is central to the strength of the immune system, mental sharpness, and ability to synthesize and absorb nutrients.

Therefore, it is key to get the probiotic health benefits of pickled vegetables and other naturally pickled and fermented foods to start healing the gut and building back our health.
