It boosts your immune system
Kimchi has lactobacillus, which helps boost your immune system by fighting off infections. Also, kimchi is naturally anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants, which get rid of free radicals and keep the immune system strong.
It improves digestive health
Perhaps the least surprising of the health benefits of kimchi is its effect on the digestive system. Fermented foods like kimchi can improve intestinal health by regulating the levels of good bacteria in the gut. These may also help reduce the occurrence of diarrhea and constipation. The probiotics in kimchi can also assist the digestive system in absorbing nutrients from the food you eat.
It regulates cholesterol levels
Researchers from Pusan National University in Korea conducted a study with 100 volunteers. To start, the participants were divided into two groups and given identical meals but with different amounts of kimchi. After a week, both groups showed drops in their cholesterol levels even if one group had more kimchi than the other.
In conclusion, the study found that eating kimchi can help lower cholesterol, even in small amounts. Healthy cholesterol levels lower your risk for heart diseases and strokes in the future.
