2. Digestive health
It has long been known that sauerkraut is very beneficial to your digestive health. Recent studies has confirmed this long-held belief and even provided some insight into just how it helps. Your gut contains over 100 trillion microorganisms. That might sound like a bad thing, but these “gut flora” as they’re called are actually good bacteria that help you digest food. Probiotic supplements are often used to increase the numbers of these good bacteria.
That being said, sauerkraut actually has natural probiotics that can boost your gut health and digestion without you having to take a single supplement. After all, why resort to pills when you can eat a naturally fermented cabbage that will be just as beneficial to the health of your gut? If you want to reap the benefits of a healthy microbiome in your gut then adding sauerkraut to your meals is the best way to do so.
