How fermented foods help the body

Fermentation has been done for years but it is said to be back as a food trend in a big way. 

Food Recipes Many opt for fermentation because it helps in increasing the nutritional value of food. It also has several other benefits. We take you through some of them...

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.
