      That shit is pasteurized. Make your own or find a brand that hasn't been heated

      >That shit is pasteurized.

      While it's true that there are no live bacteria in that kraut, it's still very probiotic, same for pickles.

      anyhow, for me it's Danny Wegman

        Not really. Dead bacteria do nothing but pass through you. You want it live and healthy

        It's prebiotic, because it still has fiber. And the fermentation has broken it down and made it easier to digest. Probiotic means it contains live bacteria.

        Something that helped me was actually dark chocolate. I think it has to be 100% chocolate though, no refined sugar. Maybe add some raw honey if you want. I had stomach problems for a long time after getting food poisoning, but after I started eating 100% dark chocolate it went away.

        Raw fruits and vegetables would be good too even if they're not fermented.

          This thread reminded me that many of the probiotic strains that we use today for supplements, were not found naturally in kimchi or yoghurt. They were found in human feces.
          >Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG), ATCC 53103 was originally isolated from fecal samples of a healthy human adult
          >It was identified as a potential probiotic strain because of its resistance to acid and bile, good growth characteristics and adhesion capacity to the intestinal epithelial layer
          > Ever since, it has been one of the most widely studied probiotic strains, used in a variety of commercially available probiotic products.
          Found in human shit, then added to processed yogurt. Yum!

      I think homemade kefir would be the best in terms of probiotic strains (up to 60, iirc), and it's an especially good value when you consider that it's only $20 for the grains plus $3 in milk a week to keep them going.

      That's pretty neat

        I just buy it fresh every week or 2. Kefir is only like $3 a bottle anyway, and that way you don't need to worry about contamination when transferring the old kefir into the new milk.

          That's fine if you have a local source or something. I've read there's fewer strains in the commercial stuff like lifeway due to shelf life or taste reasons but never saw an actual comparison.
          I only occasionally wipe out my jar and just toss the grains and new milk in without being concerned over contamination. It's pretty low maintenance stuff.

      This. Forget supps or fermented foods to feed "good bacteria". The real answer is to eat as nature intended. A diet rich in fruits in their fresh whole form. The gut corrects itself when you don't put poison into it. Whole foods in their natural.state, it's that simple.

              People's gut microbiomes are increasingly getting depleted of the microbes required for good digestion and health. Over use of broad spectrum antibiotics and poor nutrition are two of the reasons believed to be behind this decline. Fecal transplants can repopulate the microbiome in someone who is suffering depletion by using a donor whose microbiome is still healthy. The main problem, beyond the "ick" factor, is that the new host environment might not be able to sustain the transplanted microbes, making repeated transplant necessary.

                There are tests, both doctor ordered and at home but we only know what a small percentage of what the different gut bacteria do. We know some that are "good" and some that are "bad" but for most, we have no clue. Tests can't help much beyond knowing how much of certain good or bad bacteria you have. If you only replace the known good bacteria and not the unknown good, you probably only get a fraction of the benefit of a healthy gut microbiome. Fecal transplants bring along all the mystery bacteria whose function we're clueless about and yes, it's possible it could bring along some bad bacteria with the good, but if the donor is in good gut health, the transplant material likely is mostly good.
                The bacteria however isn't the only issue. You need a welcoming environment for them to live in and thrive. Otherwise it ends up being like dropping a group of Amish in the middle of Newark. They might get a couple of houses and a barn built before the locals come along to murder them and burn everything down.

                >the microbes required for good digestion and health
                There's no such thing. We now know that, for example, lab mice born and raised in completely sterile environments, with completely sterile guts, are incredibly healthy and resilient in comparison to normal mice. They're stronger, more resistant to injury, and heal incredibly quickly when they are injured. Our bodies expend a massive amount of energy simply fighting off and repairing the constant damage from even "beneficial" microbes.

                The downside, of course, is that once taken out of those sterile environments, those mice are overwhelmed by "bad" microbes. The takeaway here is that the ideal amount of gut microbes is the bare minimum of "benign" microbes necessary to stave off infection by more virulent ones. Past that, they are actively harmful. Literal parasites. There is no such thing as a good internal bacteria or virus or fungi, just ones that are less harmful than others.

                It should be common sense, as you proved by reaching the correct conclusion without knowing about these types of studies. If you stop and apply even a second of critical thought to it then the idea that we need our bodies to be colonized by bacteria and fungi in order to be healthy is beyond absurd.

                we also know that they've been bred for abnormally long telomeres and basically all cancer research done on them is invalid, so.

                >You all are obsessed with bacteria, why?
                Have you not been paying attention to mass media for the past 20 years? The concept of "probiotics" has been pushed incredibly hard and the people you are arguing with have literally spent their entire lives surrounded by this propaganda. They "know" that it's accepted fact that eating lots of bacteria-laden foods is good for you because that's what every media outlet has been blasting them with since they were old enough to read.

                These people are a lost cause. The average person simply isn't capable of breaking free from that level of brainwashing. For them, it's proven fact and no amount of contrary evidence or logic will convince them otherwise.

                . Even when confronted with both facts and the logic underlying them, most people who have spent their entire lives consuming propaganda are completely incapable of challenging that propaganda, regardless of circumstance.

                Rather than rationally consider the information being presented to him, this anon chose to focus on an irrelevant fact that let him feel that he was justified in dismissing this new information without consideration. Most people will do this in one way or another when confronted by information that contradicts their programming.

                >Studies on germ-free rodents contribute to much of our understanding of how gut microbes affect host organ development. Germ-free mice and rats tend to have smaller hearts and reduced cardiac output and oxygen consumption. Germ-free mice also have smaller liver and aberrant hepatic composition and thinner alveolar and capsule wall. The gut microbiota has a profound impact on intestinal motility, metabolism, and function, as well as intestinal morphology. Germ-free mice have markedly reduced proliferation of colonic epithelial progenitors, suggesting the gut microbiota is necessary for epithelial renewal to injury. Many of intestinal functions impaired in germ-free mice are reversible by deliberate microbial colonization. Recently, the intestinal microbiota has been found to influence brain chemistry and behavior in mice.

                >The absence of microbiota in GF rats resulted with relative hypotension compared with their conventionalized counterparts, suggesting an obligatory role of microbiota in BP homeostasis. Hypotension observed in GF rats was accompanied by a marked reduction in vascular contractility. Both BP and vascular contractility were restored by the introduction of microbiota to GF rats, indicating that microbiota could impact BP through a vascular-dependent mechanism.

                I guess you didn't share the source with us because you didn't want us reading all the parts about how GF mice live much longer than normal mice? Do you think that a GF mouse having a smaller heart than a normal mouse means that the GF mouse has a smaller heart than it should have, or that the normal mouse has an abnormally enlarged heart? When we're discussing whether or not being colonized by parasitic microbes is good for your health, do you think that organisms that have been exposed to those microbes since the day they were born are a good baseline?

      First of all, it's only constipation if you're trying to poop but can't. If you're not experiencing any discomfort or pain then you're probably not constipated.
      Secondly, the easiest way to loosen your stools is to increase your fat intake. Most of the time people get constipated because they have too much protein and not enough fat. Add oil or butter to your food and that will help get things moving.

        I take it when my meal is low in fiber, which is not often as I eat mostly brown rice, fish, and vegetables.
        It was recommended by my doctor.
        It kind of helps, like every other remedy.

        I pass stool every day but struggle to do so. After visiting doctors and trying every OTC remedy there is, I'm convinced it may be nerve damage.

      What was your process with this?
      I did a whole bunch in that same container.
      I put the sacrificial leaves over the top. A puck on top of that, then used an air lock. Let it sit out for a couple months. Then grew a bunch of mold.

        That poster is doing it dumbly but you were almost there. Sauerkraut needs to breathe its whole process. It's a lactoferment.

        I discard the outer two leaves, peel one more for the top like you did, shred and squeeze the salty cabbage until 4 ounces of liquid is produced, then pack as hard as I can into a mason jar.

        Put the leaf on top, submerged, top off with water if I was weak that day. Cloth, rubber band, dark place on a plate because it has a tendencies to bubble over sometimes in the first 2 days. You can put some river rocks on top if you want.

        You will get a white, milky bloom about a week in, that's normal. Just check every couple days to top off with water. It's like a house plant. Never suffocate it

        Mine is always done in 10 days. If the bloom has formed little semisolid rafts I tend to tip those out before transferring to a deli container for the fridge.

        Pro tip leave your cabbage out for a day or two. Trying to do it with fridge cold cabbage sucks major ass

        You don't use yeast, that will make a weird tea wine. Kombucha is largely aceto bacteria driven which is why the alcohol level is Mormon tier.

        Here's the moron proof way to do it:
        >buy a pint bottle of your favorite kombucha
        >make 1 quart of sweet tea using 8 bags of tea, boiling water and 1 Cup Sugar
        >brew 10 minutes
        >add 2 quarts cold water in your 1 gallon jar
        >add 1 quart super sweet tea
        >temperature should be less than blood temp
        >add your 1 pint bottle of kombucha
        >cover with cloth and secure with rubber band
        >let sit in warm dark place (top of fridge, behind tv) for 14-21 days
        >a SCOBY will form on the surface
        >repeat using 1 pint of booch, SCOBY, same tea mix
        >remember to transfer the SCOBY and starter to a different container, do NOT dump boiling hot tea on it
        >bottling booch:
        >3 ea quart jars with fruit and/or 1 Tbsp sugar each
        >don't use mason jars the lids rust, use glass juice bottles like pomegranate etc
        >sit caps on for 3 days, room temperature
        >this step carbonates your kombucha
        >put in fridge
        >meanwhile
        >2nd+ batches with SCOBY only take 10-14 days

        If you want to consume a pint a day, you will want to double your batch or offset with a second gallon batch by 5-7 days. That's what I do, it's just part of my Wednesday routine now.

      not everyone has open wound but millions of folks have this staff infection, and can be strung along by the medical industry. and in my case I feel like a money grab for them. and I need to help myself instead of trusting medical suits are doing all they can for my health.

    In fact where I spent many weeks on separate occasions the pulque was constantly being prepared, it was had as a secondary drink for breakfast even for children, it was not so much treated as a beer or shot but instead as a food and not heavily consumed.
    Find a first hand collector for best results also expect to spend nearly a week to begin to find a taste for it, as it would be similar to drinking or rather swallowing raw egg yolks in milk in terms of viscosity

The concept of "probiotics" has been pushed incredibly hard and the people you are arguing with have literally spent their entire lives surrounded by this propaganda. They "know" that it's accepted fact that eating lots of bacteria-laden foods is good for you because that's what every media outlet has been blasting them with since they were old enough to read.

                These people are a lost cause. The average person simply isn't capable of breaking free from that level of brainwashing. For them, it's proven fact and no amount of contrary evidence or logic will convince them otherwise.

    People with weak immune systems are the ones that have gut bacteria problems because their weak immune system can't manage their gut properly so bad bacteria take over.

        If you want a 'healthy gut microbiome' eat a daily vitamin so that your immune system gets all the nutrients it needs to function properly, because since 70-80% of all immune cells are in the cut, the immune system spends a lot of time managing the bacteria in the gut.

          also, eat a low fat diet so that the amount of bile in your digestive tract is low. bile suppresses immune function in the gut

    >Moreover, GF mice also exhibited reduced brain-derived neurotrophic factor expression levels in the cortex and hippocampus relative to SPF mice. The exaggerated HPA stress response by GF mice was reversed by reconstitution with Bifidobacterium infantis. In contrast, monoassociation with enteropathogenic Escherichia coli, but not with its mutant strain devoid of the translocated intimin receptor gene, enhanced the response to stress. Importantly, the enhanced HPA response of GF mice was partly corrected by reconstitution with SPF faeces at an early stage, but not by any reconstitution exerted at a later stage, which therefore indicates that exposure to microbes at an early developmental stage is required for the HPA system to become fully susceptible to inhibitory neural regulation. These results suggest that commensal microbiota can affect the postnatal development of the HPA stress response in mice.

    >A recent report has shown that germ-free animals display impaired development and maturation of isolated lymphoid follicles (ILFs)12. These inducible structures seem to form normally following the introduction of gut bacteria, suggesting a dynamic relationship between the immune system and the microbiota. Together with various morphological tissue defects observed in the intestines of germ-free animals, it appears that the entire ultrastructural development of the gut is intimately connected to intestinal bacteria.

    Whats the best way store sauerkraut longer term (6months) not in the fridge. Early in January using 5p free Christmas cabbages and they are about ready but i don't want to put 6 jars in my fridge for the next 3-6months and i don't have a basement or garage or anywhere colder than the house temp to keep them from further fermenting. Any suggestions?

      Sauerkraut can survive between lager and ale temperatures (40-55F) for a year in a cellar. If it's going somewhere above 60F you're going to have to can it, which pasteurized the microbes out. Still very krauty

      But for how little you're working with I'd consider staging and using different applications for your cabbage. Your kraut will probably be okay for 6 weeks or so out and active. Refrigerate two jars. You could pickle half of the cabbage for fish tacos or goulash or Cole slaw.

      If you're hell bent on keeping it active, you simply need a cool place to keep it

      plain then blend with actual fruit and honey instead of the goyslop ((fruit)) and sweeteners they are probably putting in it

        All I have available to me is Strawberry, Blueberry and plain. I like strawberry and blueberry. I wish we had peach, that sounds awesome... If peach was available here, I would wind up increasing my kefir budget by $20 a month.

    I've had garlic fermenting in raw honey for two months and I'm not sure how to access it. Do I refrigerate it and pull out cloves as I see fit, or ditch all the honey beforehand, or just leave it to keep fermenting without being airtight?

      use a spoon fork or fondue fork
      or pour it into a different jar and grab a few on the transfer
      what's going on in your head?
