My nerdy write-up about unsalted cultured foods is here.

When you eat unsalted, cultured food, the probiotics that are inside them go into gut/inner ecosystem and set up shop. Once there, they make babies, grow in #’s, and build mini cities the size of NYC in a matter of hours. No joke. Once they settle in your gut lining they are in a strong position to support you in various beneficial ways.
