Fermented foods are popular all around the world, and people enjoy all kinds of these beneficial foods, from sauerkraut and kimchi to kombucha.
Fermented foods have in fact been through a process of lacto fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on sugar and starch in the food and produces lactic acid. This process preserves the foods and leads to the formation of various probiotics, beneficial enzymes, and B vitamins.
The consumption of fermented foods, as they are high in probiotics, brings beneficial bacteria into the digestive system and maintains a balance of the bowel health.
Therefore, the digestive enzymes function better in absorbing food. Probiotics also support the production of antibodies and strengthen the immune system, preventing various illnesses and diseases.
Ginger is a common ingredient in fermented foods, due to its beneficial properties. It effectively soothes inflammation, treats various diseases, and even fights cancer. Its main bioactive compound, gingerol, has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
