Kimchi has some amazing health benefits. It’s a fermented cabbage that’s made with a mix of salt, vinegar, garlic and spices, and contains healthy bacteria and probiotics for overall wellness, and is rich antioxidants. Kimchi has also been found to boost immunity and metabolism, and lower cholesterol levels.
