Also fermentation breaks down goitrogens, substances which are found in raw cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, chard, spinach, cauliflower, kale. It is important to break them down because although these vegetables are very nutritious in other ways, goitrogens can interfere with the functioning of the thyroid if taken in over a long period.

Cabbage and cucumber contain the culture that starts the fermentation process, other vegetables and even fruit can be added. Known as sauerkraut or kimchee, cultured vegetables are easy to make when you know how - here we share the quick and simple way.

  1. Hi Holly! First I will say I enjoy your blog very much. When I landed on this page I found the link to this video broken. Don't know it that was intentional and you already know about it or not, but thought I would let you know anyway. Thank you for sharing your years of research, knowledge and wisdom. Finding an individual that I truly resonate with talking about nutrition is not always easy to find on the the internet. You know, weed through all the crap till you find the grains of truth. Thanx again.
