I recently read an article from Washington Post, 'Kimchi : Korea's affordable health care' where it reveals the health effects of Kimchi, one of the world's 5 healthy food. In Japan, Kimchi is already popular in normal households. I had the opportunity to eat Kimchi a couple of times when I went to a Korean restaurant. It wasn't as spicy as I expected, and although it was kind of sour, vinegarish tasting, it was pretty good. It had the unique neat taste of Korean food. Kimchi is abundant in lactic acid, and dietary fibers, which helps anti-aging, digestion, strengthens immune systems, and cleans out the toxic waste within the body. With all this health benefits with the taste... Why don't you give it a try!
