Just wondering if anybody knows an approximate count on how many probiotics are in a serving of non-pasteurized kimchi.

I want to try to get more probiotics from foods and take fewer supplements. Thanks.

I don't guess I know what you are referring to; the only kimchi I know of is a pickled vegetable variety that is originally from Korea...........

Don't count, just eat it!

I find that eating actual fermented foods like kimuchi, miso, tofu, sauerkraut, yoghurt etc have MUCHHH better effect than ingesting probiotics in capsules.

I eat kimuchi almost every day as I live in Korea now. I also suspect that the chili pepper in it has many killing properties as chili is known to be a sort of wonder plant in natural medicine.

If you stomach stand kimuchi, eat it. When I was too sick, I couldn't stand chili and even got allergic to it, so I didn't eat it. But now, chili does nothing bad anymore so I became a regular consumer.

You are so right about fermented foods being so much better than supplements. I wish I looked into this sooner.

It is too early to tell, but I really think eating the kimchi twice a day is also making my post-Lyme eczema better!

Yes I eat lots of unpasterized sauerkraut. I love the taste, but it also feels great and actually does give me energy-besides the probiotics in it its very high in Vit C.

Yes me too on the list of living probiotic foods. Yogurt / kambucha / kefir / krauts and probiotic relish, and soon -- probiotic fruit concoctions at some point. I'll be purchasing some natto and start eating that as well. Each probiotic concoction has its own benefits.

natto might be great to include, because it might repopulate intestines with vitamin k producing bacteria.

It would be interesting to see the biophoton emissions from pasteurized kraut versus non-pasteurized. I'm guessing there is a difference.

Another interesting thought, what foods are the most homeopathic. I suspect we might find out that cheese and butter because of the churning nature of how they are created. And the fact that micro-organisms created them. There is a great deal of subtle energy within them that might effect pathogens. I'm not sure how true that is, but I thought it was interesting. Cheese viewed as a homepathic, like curing like, and yet we only consider it as a food.

Ooops I hope the FDA doesn't get wind of this, they may ban cheese worldwide if it cured anything. I know I'll fool them, to the FDA, aspartame cures lyme! You better ban it!!!

Bob- have you tried natto? Most Americans, and a lot of Japanese, find it unappetizing. Just a warning...

I love cheese and try to find raw cheese when I can which isn't easy unless you can get a farm to buy it from. As for butter-I love that too haha-I buy organic cultured butter. It is so good, best butter I have ever had...although i have yet to try real raw butter.

Maria -- I eat everything, and I understand the issue. It's probably best mixed with other things.

My range is quite high -- including 160,000 hut cayenne pepper.

Soooo, I'm kind of interested in it, because of all it's bad press.

I'll buy one, see if I can stomach it. If I can, I'll make my own for awhile.

natto is the best way, i think, to populate vit k2 oriented bacteria in the gut.
