Health benefits of miso… what are they?
There are so many great health benefits of eating miso, though I will only give you five
1. Support Guy Health
With the fermentation process that is involved in the production of miso, this is believed to help promote levels of beneficial bacteria, known as probiotics. This bacteria can help a range of health issues including digestion and gut health.
2. Vitamin levels
There are studies that have shown that the beneficial bacteria in the gut helps to make vitamins, (Vitamin K and B12) as a by-product of their metabolism.
3. Reduction in risks of certain cancers
Eating miso regularly is thought to potentially reduce the risk of certain cancers, including Breast Cancer, especially in non-menopausal women. Miso also has a rich source of antioxidants which many further support its protective role in this area.
4. Enhance the immune function
With this being so such a rich source of probiotic, miso will help support your immune function and help fight infections. Consuming fermented foods like miso may minimize your need for antibiotic therapy when fighting infections.
5. Supporting brain health…
