Probiotics are associated with a variety of health benefits, including improved digestion, better immunity, and even increased weight loss .
Here are 8 fermented foods and drinks that have been shown to improve health and digestion.
Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, natto, yoghurt, and kefir contain healthy bacteria called probiotics, which can help reduce inflammation and improve insulin resistance.
