How fermented foods help the body
Digestion: Fermented foods are easily digestible because of their probiotic content. The process of fermentation helps in making the meal more digestible because it breaks down, hard-to-digest cellulose in food.
Rich in enzymes: The body needs enzymes to absorb, digest and use the nutrients in one’s food. As you age, the body’s supply of enzymes reduces, which may lead to several ailments.
Detoxification: Fermented foods help in detoxification of the body. The beneficial bacteria in these foods flush out a lot of toxins.
Restores the balance of bacteria in the gut: Those suffering from lactose intolerance, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, yeast infections, allergies and asthma can live a healthier lifestyle if they include fermented foods in their diet.
