Light and healthy summer salad

Fermented foods and beverages provide several health benefits. These products have been around for a long time and were originally popular because of their long shelf life and unique taste and texture. Now there are many different types of fermented foods, such as yogurt, cheese, beer and wine, sourdough bread, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, tempeh, and more! Each of these fermented foods provides similar health benefits. Lots of research is currently being done on fermented whole foods and their ability to promote human health. Studies indicate that fermented foods have the ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and overall mortality. They have also improved weight maintenance, glucose metabolism, muscle soreness, and inflammatory bowel disease. Specifically, kimchi and sauerkraut have been shown to decrease insulin resistance and improve insulin sensitivity, which overall improves glucose tolerance. Additional studies are starting to look at fermented food consumption and how it alters mood and brain activity, specifically depression. Overall, there are many positive health outcomes associated with fermented foods. By having fermented foods daily, you can help to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
