How much electromagnetic radiation are you exposed to each day?
In our daily lives, most of us are exposed to low doses of radiation on a regular basis. Radiation sources include cell phones, x-rays, and airport screenings.
Low-dose radiation exposure can be more subtle than x-rays and cell phones, though. Daily we’re confronted with computers, smoke detectors, WIFI routers and cigarette smoke (source).
If we know we’re going to be exposed to more radiation on a given day (for example, traveling and going through security at the airport, or having a necessary x-ray), what can we do?
Vitamin C & EMF Protection (Anti-Radiation Benefits)
Amazingly, Vitamin C blocks the effects of radiation (source)!
Many fields now look to Vitamin C to combat the effects of radiation and prevent cancer. Vitamin C supplementation is valued as a preventative measure prior to nuclear radiation exposure. And Vitamin C is used by many practitioners during and after cancer treatment (source and source).
Experts who recommend Vitamin C as a form of prevention and treatment suggest 3 to 4 daily doses.
That's why I chose to make this High Vitamin C Sauerkraut with Rose Hips! I enjoy it daily with my meals (it’s delicious!) as a food-sourced, natural layer of defense for my body in a world bombarded with toxins.
While supplemental Vitamin C taken 3 to 4 times daily is unrealistic and costly… eating high Vitamin C sauerkraut is easy and inexpensive.
Fermented products have long been utilized for their EMF protection and anti-radiation benefits. This High Vitamin C sauerkraut with rose hips pairs probiotic (and Vitamin C rich) sauerkraut with an herb renowned for being a high Vitamin C food, creating a SUPERfood of bioavailable nutrients! The Vitamin C in rose hips becomes even more pronounced through fermentation.
The flavor is tangy and delicious!
High Vitamin C Sauerkraut With Rose Hips
No pound fermented sauerkraut just got even more special... Say hello to High Vitamin C Sauerkraut! It's tangy and delicious, but that's not all. This homemade sauerkraut also boosts the immune system and provides EMF protection! Do you need a DIY, budget-friendly way to shield yourself from daily radiation exposure? Get ready to detox with only 4 ingredients: cabbage, rose hips, water, and sea salt!
Finely shred cabbage, discarding core.
Place cabbage in large bowl with filtered water and sea salt. Stir slightly.
Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
Toss cabbage again.
Re-cover and set aside for an additional 30 minutes.
Pack into fermenting crock of choice, layering it as you go with dried rose hips.
Pour any remaining salted water in the large bowl over the cabbage and rose hips.
Press down firmly to pack tightly and remove air bubbles.
Let ferment in warm, dark location.
After 12 to 24 hours, pack cabbage down again to make sure that it is beneath the brine.
Allow to ferment for 7 days or longer. Transfer to cold storage where flavors will continue to develop.
Looking for another variation? Sometimes I add broccoli to my sauerkraut. Broccoli is also high in Vitamin C, and its nutrition becomes more bioavailable through fermentation. Broccoli and cabbage pair well together.
My Favorite Fermentation Tools
- I use this modern Korean crock, designed to make large, regular amounts of kimchi.
- These weights, fitted for Mason jars, help your ferment stay under the brine without any hassle!
- These airlock lids allow your ferment to breathe, while it remains anaerobic. No burping is necessary to release the built up CO2 with these lids.
- Finally, Wardee recommends and loves all Ohio Stoneware products, including the crock, lid, and weights!
Don't Forget The Extra Brine!
The above recipe uses a no-pound method that incorporates water and sea salt, much like pouring a salt brine over pickles. This method also provides extra brine, which I use for 2 purposes…
My family likes to drink the brine for a quicker source of probiotics. For instance, when we're eating in the midst of a busy day, and don't want to pull out sauerkraut from the jar with a fork.
I also use sauerkraut juice regularly to inoculate other fermented foods or soaked batters. Here are some recipes you may enjoy that use sauerkraut juice: Beet Kvass, Paleo Sourdough Waffles, and Paleo Sourdough Bread.
