Download and read online The Microbiome Diet in PDF and EPUB Cutting-edge science has shown that the microbiome is the secret to healthy weight loss and to feeling healthy, energized, optimistic, and at the top of your game. The microbiome is a whole inner world that lives within your intestines—trillions of tiny microbes that help you extract the nutrients from your food, balance your mood, and sharpen your clarity and focus. These beneficial bacteria make up a separate ecology within the body and have an enormous influence on your metabolism, your hormones, your cravings—even your genes. The microbiome's health is intimately involved with yours: when it flourishes, you flourish. When it craves sugar, so do you. When it operates at peak efficiency, so does your metabolism. And when your microbiome is out of balance, you might find yourself gaining weight or unable to lose weight, no matter how much you exercise or how carefully you eat. To achieve your ideal weight, you need the help of your microbiome. Now, drawing from nearly two decades of experience as a specialist in functional medicine and intestinal health, Raphael Kellman, MD, has developed the first diet based upon on these scientific breakthroughs. The Microbiome Diet offers an effective three-phase plan to heal your gut, reset your metabolism, and achieve dramatic, sustainable weight loss. The Microbiome Diet will help you...

Download and read online Handbook of Fermented Functional Foods in PDF and EPUB Fermented foods have been an important part of the human diet in many cultures for many centuries. Modern research, especially on the immune system, is revealing how these foods and their active ingredients impact human health. Handbook of Fermented Functional Foods presents the latest data on fermented food products, their production processes, and their nutritional and health benefits. Written by international experts in the forefront of fermented food science and technology, this book explores how fermentation of a food changes its composition, adds new nutrients, produces active ingredients or increases the bioavailability of nutrients, and how the live bacteria in some fermented foods enhance their nutritive health value. It covers fermented foods well known to western consumers - such as yogurt, cheese, pickles, sauerkraut, and fermented meat - and examines fermented foods with long traditions in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa - including gaio, kefir, natto, miso, kimchi, kocho, ogi, and togwa. In light of our increased knowledge of the health benefits of fermented foods, there is a great need for a single reputable source for current information. Handbook of Fermented Functional Foods fills this void by providing the first state-of-the-art treatment of the production of fermented foods, the microorganisms involved, the changes in composition that occur during fermentation, and most importantly the effect of these foods and their active ingredients on human health.
