Forget everything you think you know about vegetables and let me tell you what happens when you culture them. Grow your own probiotics in a jar of vegetables, and you’ll be shocked and amazed at all they can do. I feel like I’ve been standing on the top of a mountain singing the praises of cultured vegetables for fifteen years and some have listened and others not, but I knew one day there would be a tipping point and that day is almost here. My life was dramatically changed from a jar of cultured vegetables that was teeming with billions of probiotics. It continues to amaze me and fill me with wonder but the help it provides can far surpass the things I have seen in myself and countless others. My everyday life is made better by eating a spoonful of these amazing vegetables. We keep a jar in our fridge at all times . . . okay, like at least six or more jars to be truthful. I like variety, what can I say? They will last for months on end.
I’ve seen them help myself and countless people with stomach distress, be it food poisoning or a virus or stomach rumbles. I’ve used it on my whole family for years and years. Nothing works as fast or better than a spoonful of juice or the veggies. It will make you a believer if you just try it the next time you have stomach distress of any kind. But that’s not all it can do.
Powerful Lactobacillus Plantarum
Saving thousands of infants
Respiratory infections dropped
But something else happened that they didn’t expect. The probiotics also began to help with other types of infections, including those in the lungs. Respiratory infections dropped by about 30 percent. “That was a big surprise, because we didn’t think gut bacteria were going to work in a distant organ like the lung,” Panigrahi says. They actually stopped the trial prematurely since it was working so well. “We were planning to enroll 8,000 babies, but stopped at just over 4,000 infants,” Panigrahi says.
Pascal Lavoie, a neonatologist at BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia, says, “These beneficial bacteria can push out harmful bacteria in the baby’s gut by changing the environment or simply using up resources. They also produce a compound that strengthens the wall of the intestine. It acts as a barrier to prevent the bad bacteria from going through the wall into the blood. The probiotic bacteria can jumpstart a baby’s immune system. Probiotics can be much more powerful than drugs.”
