Rejuvelac Premium PD Recipe
You will be amazed at how quick and easy it is to sprout and ferment one organic ingredient to create this probiotic-populated sweet water with a refreshing tart finish. Through Protective Diet Education you are learning the ‘why’ of The Microbiome Population Project, as well as the ‘how’ to develop a health-promoting resident microbiota by simply consuming recipes like this and others found on Protective Diet. Start with a small health shot of Rejuvelac before meals and see how your digestive system responds. If your resident gut microbes are not accustomed to fermented foods or a diet abundant in raw vegetables and fiber Rejuvelac might move things along faster than usual. Rejuvelac is a direct population transfer of health-promoting natural microbes. These healthy microbes are beneficial to us when we feed them a diet containing fiber and resistant starch. They rely on resistant starch and polyphenols from plant foods. Healthy microbes ferment and digest resistant starch and produce butyrate. Butyrate is an anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acid. We must eat fiber, particularly resistant starch, every day to give them energy to provide us with this protective anti-inflammatory wash I call the butyrate bath. This bath floods our entire system, including our brain, reducing the risk of obesity, metabolic disease, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and inflammatory pain. Rejuvelac was created by Dr. Ann Wigmore, an American holistic health practitioner, naturopath, and raw food advocate born in 1909.
