Information about fermentation and microbiology has exploded on the Internet in recent years— I’m always scouring for the most up-to-date facts on the benefits of fermented foods.
Check out the list I’ve compiled to find a combination of NPR articles (check out what the Buddhist nuns in Korea have to say about fermented foods!), a Radiolab podcast on gut health, and the Microbiome Medicine Summit which includes dozens of leading health experts sharing about all aspects of healing with fermented foods.
This information is perfect if you want to be able to articulate why fermented foods are so important to your family members, health care practitioners, or, if you’re a wellness practitioner yourself, to your clients.

And more….You could spend a few minutes or many happy hours delving into these fun facts and important science findings.
What I love about these resources is that the information is so varied—you’ll find everything from the science to practical step-by-step instructions, such as Chris Kresser’s link on How to Restore Healthy Gut Flora Over the Long-Term.

Guts by Radiolab
“This hour, we dive into the messy mystery in the middle of us. What's going on down there? And what can the rumblings deep in our bellies tell us about ourselves? We stick our hand in a cow stomach, get a window into our core (thanks to a hunter who became a walking science experiment in the 1800s), and listen in on the surprising back-and-forth between our gut and our brain. And we talk to a man who kind of went out of his mind when a medical procedure left him (for a little while) gutless.”
