Get Pickled!

Get pickled before you get yourself into a pickle!

A study out of the University of Maryland has shown that eating fermented foods may reduce anxiety.  More recently, there’s been extensive research about the brain-gut connection.  Some people even refer to the gut as the ‘second brain’.  These powerful, fermented foods significantly increase the “good” bacteria we need in our digestive system, reduce inflammation, contain anti-oxidants and give a boost to our immune system to fight infection.  So next time you’re in need of some Calmfidence before a big event, speech or interview, enjoy some fermented food:

Pickles
Sauerkraut
Probiotic Yogurt
Kefir
Kimchi
Kombucha
Tempeh
Miso

You can find all of the above at your local grocery store.  As always, moderation is key!
