THE VALUE OF REJUVELAC AND OTHER FERMENTED FOODS IN THE DAILY DIET
Helps cleanse the intestinal tract:Lactic acid destroys harmful intestinal bacteriaBabies being breastfed within the first 48 hours of their life receive a sufficient amount of lactobacillus bifidus, a friendly bacteria culture in the intestine. However, introducing unnatural, cooked, and dead foods can destroy this culture.Developing a healthy strain of the friendly bacteria, such as lactobacillus, saccharmyses, and aspergillus oryzae (all of which are found in rejuvelac), strengthens resistance to foreign bacteria in the event of international travel.
Supplies nutritional elements such as protein, carbohydrates, dextrines, saccharin’s phosphates and vitamins.
Enzymes are the catalysts of life. Dr. Ann Wigmore believes “life begins with catalysts and continues only through them.” These enzymes break down food substance to simpler forms. Our bodies can only use the nutrients in this fully broken down state. Cooking can destroy these enzymes and bad food combinations will slow down or stop their action, causing incomplete digestion and purification in the colon. Eating live food packed with enzymes will ensure a strong enzymatic capacity for efficient digestion and youthful body.
Contains many enzymes, one of which is amylase, which breaks down glucose, starch, and glycogens and aspergillus, which is a common digestive aid.
The protein and starches contained in rejuvelac are predigested. They are broken down to their simplest form, amino acids and simple sugars. This makes the nutrients immediately available for assimilation, even for those with weak digestive systems.
