Research Around the World
Digestive health is rapidly becoming the most common area of “incurable” diseases. Modern day lifestyle takes a toll on the body, leading to chronic inflammation, and an imbalance of gut flora and the gut environment which can lead to inflammatory bowel disease.
Probiotics are found in everything from chocolate and pickles to hand lotion and baby formula, and millions of people buy probiotic supplements to boost digestive health. But new research suggests they might not be as effective as we think.
Beer and wine do have antioxidants, but find out why the wild fermentation process used to make them is NOT so great for your health. Food allergies affect approximately 12 million Americans, according to scientists. 1 And it seems they are on the rise, affecting a higher percentage of children than adults.
Soybean meal (SBM), a commonly used protein source for animal feed, contains anti-nutritional factors such as trypsin inhibitor, phytate, oligosaccharides among others, which limit its utilization. Microbial fermentation using bacteria or fungi has the capability to improve nutritional value of SBM by altering the native composition.
An in vivo experiment was performed with pigs to study the inhibitory effect of fermented feed on the bacterial population of the gastrointestinal tract. Results demonstrated a significant positive correlation between pH and lactobacilli in the stomach contents of pigs in dry feed as well as in the stomach contents of pigs fed fermented feed.
Cereals, legumes, and tubers that are used for the production of fermented foods may contain significant amounts of antinutritional or toxic component…

Probiotics and Prebiotics. They sound the same, but they’re quite different, and have different implications for the gut. What are probiotics? Probiotics are living micro-organisms, often bacterial, that are similar to the bacteria that naturally occur in the human body – particularly the intestine, and even more particularly the intestine of a healthy, breastfed baby.
