Fermented foods have taken the world by storm, as they help improve digestion, enable us to better assimilate vitamins and minerals and strengthen the immune system.

Many of these items you can buy in the store, but making them at home is fun, simple, economical and even better for you. With just a few ingredients and materials, you can start brewing your own delicious probiotic beverages for your family.
