03:00 Food Number 1: Bone Broth. Healthy animal bones are rich in valuable vitamins and minerals like calcium, phosphorous and magnesium, and when consumed in stock form are easily recognized and absorbed by the body. Bone broth also contains collagen, the base material of our cells which is integral to cellular regeneration and healing. Drinking the broth can improve the appearance of your skin and can even reduce cellulite!
04:22 Food Number 2: Fermented Vegetables. A type of bacteria called Bacteroides is one of the most important and abundant bacteria in the colon. It is acquired at birth and is not present in any probiotic on the market because it cannot survive outside the gut in the presence of oxygen. Eating fermented foods supplies trillions of bacteria to impact our gut health and more yet-to-be discovered bacteria that could be the most miraculous of all for healing. Eat these: (kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, raw cheese, miso, tempeh, natto)
