A recent study, conducted by psychologists at the College of William & Mary, found a link between diets high in fermented foods and reduced neuroticism and social anxiety. Long story short, eating sauerkraut could reduce that awkward nervous feeling you get when forced to be social. The reason for this is that the mind is affected by the microorganisms in your gut. And what helps the health of your gut? You got it, the probiotics in fermented foods like sauerkraut.
These findings from the preliminary research suggest that consuming probiotics could lessen anxiety and depression. So load up those brats with sauerkraut and make your way to the fun crowd at the cookout. Sauerkraut could be your new mojo.
