You really need to read up on pickled foods and what they do for your intestinal tract. Sauerkraut or pickles from a health food store that contain live cultures can be found in the refrigerated section and will say that they have live probiotics.
I have a very advanced yeast infection ( candida ) . Too many carbs or sugar and I always have diarrhea. After being on kraut and pickles for about 3 months my bowel movements are normal 90 to 95 % on the time. I just eat a little kraut usually before a meal. Most of my candida symptoms are gone or should I say in better control now. I believe I still have quite a way to go but I can have more of a normal diet now.
