Are Fermented Foods Good for You?
Miso, kimchi and yoghurt – fermented foods are tasty, but that’s not the only reason why they’re all the rage now. If you aren’t a fan of these foods, don’t turn your nose up yet! Read on to find out how they are not only beneficial for your body, but also for your skin.
1. They contain bacteria – the good kind
Found naturally in many fermented foods, probiotics are live bacteria or yeasts that are good for health. They are friendly bacteria that balance the amount of good and bad bacteria in the digestive system to keep the gut healthy. Probiotics prevent an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, protect the body against allergens and environmental toxins, and promote better overall health. Yoghurt, cheese, sauerkraut and kimchi are all good dietary sources of probiotics.
2. They aid in digestion
When you eat food, your body produces enzymes to help to break down the carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Fermented foods contain an abundance of enzymes that contribute to both improved digestion and absorption of nutrients in the gut.
3. They have beautifying effects
Instead of consuming these components, ORBIS has realised that by applying fermented ingredients directly to the skin, their beautifying effects can reach the skin directly for excellent results.
In Night Time Pack Koubijin, the same fermentation method as wine is used to obtain Chardonnay Grape extract. Chardonnay is also known as the queen of white grapes, and its fermented extract is rich in lactic acid, which has moisture-retaining and skin-softening effects. In addition, Low-molecular Hyaluronic Acid obtained from fermentation hydrates deeply, plumping up the skin. It also contains White Strawberry extract. Known as Japan’s miracle fruit, White Strawberries have skin brightening and collagen producing effects. An overnight mask, simply use it at bedtime and wake up to skin that is smooth, plump and glowing!
