Genetics may play a role, but diet is the real secret.
The thought of Kimchi may arouse senses of a pungent, spicy dish, which requires most Americans some getting used to. But along with the pungent odor, Kimchi has incredible health benefits inside and out.
Health Benefits of Korean Kimchi
Since Kimchi is a fermented food, it will contain live bacteria, also known as Probiotics. Consider Kimchi an ecosystem in itself, which can contribute positively to your own ecosystem.
- Healthy bacteria essential to immune system and digestion
- Strains of bacteria, such as Lactobacillus, break down indigestible food in your body and produce B-vitamins for your use.
- Cabbage is very low in calories and high in nutrients: Vitamins A and C in particular.
- Kimchi also contains garlic, a powerful immune booster
- This raw food contains active enzymes to help you digest food, and act as a catalyst for essential body functions.
- Kimchi keeps your intestines in good shape, reducing and healing ulcers, and possibly fighting cancer as well.
- Healthy vaginal health, including less bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections
Kimchi is a powerful health food, which promotes fat loss and reduces gas and bloating.
In other words, Kimchi boosts quality of life, and thats what I really care about.
