Fermented foods are rich in probiotic bacteria so by consuming fermented foods you are adding beneficial bacteria and enzymes to your overall intestinal flora, increasing the health of your gut microbiome and digestive system and enhancing the immune system.
Top 5 Reasons to Add Fermented Vegetables to your Diet:
1. Improves Digestive Health
The probiotics produced during fermentation can help restore the balance of friendly bacteria in your gut and may alleviate some digestive problems like of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). What’s more, fermented foods may also lessen the severity of diarrhea, bloating, gas, and constipation.
2. Boosts Your Immune System
Due to their high probiotic content, fermented foods can give your immune system a boost and reduce your risk of infections like the common cold
3. Makes Food Easier to Digest
Fermentation helps break down nutrients in food, making them easier to digest than their unfermented counterparts. For example, lactose — the natural sugar in milk — is broken down during fermentation into simpler sugars — glucose and galactose
4. Weight loss
Studies have found links between certain probiotic strains — including Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus gasseri — and weight loss and decreased belly fat.
5. Heart health, Lowers Blood Pressure and Bad Cholesterol
Fermented foods have been associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Probiotics may also modestly reduce blood pressure and help lower total and “bad” LDL cholesterol.
