A cocktail made of sauerkraut can be really tasty if you combine it with sweet fruit. Drinking such a drink will help you lose weight, but above all, it will be beneficial for your health.

Sauerkraut is often called the “queen of pickled cabbage” due to its great taste and health-promoting properties. It is a basic ingredient of traditional dishes, such as bigos or dumplings with cabbage and mushrooms. Various salads are also prepared from it, and some people eat it “solo”, without other additions. You can also prepare a delicious cocktail from such cabbage, which has a beneficial effect on your body and will also help you get rid of excess fat.

A cocktail made of sauerkraut will help you lose weight

Eating sauerkraut (in various forms) can help you lose weight for several reasons. Firstly, it is low-calorie (100 g is only 16 kcal), which means that you can eat a larger amount without a large increase in calories. Additionally, sauerkraut is rich in dietary fiber, which affects our feeling of satiety – it makes us feel full for longer, so we can easily put away high-calorie and unhealthy snacks (we guarantee that you won't want to eat them again). Such sauerkraut also supports the health of the intestinal flora, which contributes to better digestion and absorption of nutrients. Remember, however, that sauerkraut itself is not a miracle weight loss agent and should be part of a balanced diet combined with regular physical activity.

What other beneficial properties does sauerkraut have?

Sauerkraut is called a “superfood” – it is rich in vitamins and minerals. In addition to improving intestinal function, it also slows down the aging process and has anti-inflammatory properties. Its consumption also has a positive effect on our lipid profile and glucose levels, and supports the functioning of the immune system.

But that's not all – sauerkraut may have a preventive effect on cancer. It contains natural antioxidants such as vitamins C, A and E, as well as polyphenols and carotenoids, which reduces the risk of gastrointestinal cancer and hormone-dependent cancers (breast, cervical, ovarian and prostate cancer). These compounds belong to the group of antioxidants, thanks to which they eliminate the effects of free radicals (the excess of which is harmful to our health). Antioxidants play the greatest role in preventing cancer. This wealth of valuable ingredients gives sauerkraut its anti-cancer properties. For the prevention of cancer, it is recommended to eat at least 5 portions (400-600 g) of low-starch vegetables and fruits, including sauerkraut.
