Fermented foods are the perfect way to eliminate toxins and refresh your body in time for Summer. After a winter of indulging in heavy comfort foods, like me, you’re probably ready to restore balance in your body and just feel lighter. Here are 14 Fermented Foods To Help You Cleanse and Detox This Spring so you can feel beautiful and fresh for Summer.
Health benefits of eating fermented foods include…
- Probiotic and full of fiber, making them great for digestion. Improved digestion can lead to less bloating, a flatter tummy and clearer skin.
- Fermented foods help your body absorb vitamins and minerals more efficiently. If your digestion is poor, you are unable to absorb the nutrients you are eating which leads to many health problems. Fermented foods are “pre-digested” and help break down food more efficiently.
- Energy! As a result of being able to absorb nutrients more efficiently and less energy being used by your body to digest, you will have an increase in energy.
