Traditional Kimchi is a spicy, fermented condiment. This staple Korean food is made from cabbage, garlic, salt and other seasonings and vinegar and fermented for 3-4 months. The long fermentation allows the probiotics to grow and multiply, and the nutrients in the vegetables to be “pre-digested” and made more bio-available. There are 187 historic and current varieties of kimchi.
Kimchi is Korea’s best known food, the pride of Korea – a cultural icon and national treasure. It is served at almost every meal. The average consumption of kimchi is around 40 kilos per person per year.
Recognized as one of the world’s healthiest foods, kimchi is loaded with key vitamins, kimchi contains healthy bacteria that aid digestion, plus it is low calorie and high fibre.
It is more than just a spicy food. It is renowned for its restorative and rejuvenation properties and it scientifically proven to eliminate unfriendly bacteria and boost immunity.
In 2003 an outbreak of what became known as SARS occurred in Asia, while other countries were badly affected, Korea was virtually untouched. Also, the Korean chickens infected with the H5N1 (avian flu) virus, recovered after eating food which contained the same good bacteria found in kimchi.
Subsequent studies (on 200 chickens) by Korea Food Research Institute supported the theory that it enhanced immunity.
In fact several studies have shown that kimchi probiotics protect against even the worst viruses and bacteria. The “good” bacteria in kimchi produce bacteriocins – which are harmless to the body and the rest of your “good” bacteria, but are toxic to the “bad” bacteria. Kimchi also enhances the body’s immune defences with its effects on the body’s immune system – the Peyer’s patches (or aggregated lymphoid nodules which form a part of the body’s immune system) – inside your gut.
Enhancing your immune system is crucial to your well being. The single biggest risk factor for deadly infection or disease is a weakened immune system.
Research (Kor J. Microbiol, Biotechnol (2008) 36(2), 106-114) also shows that kimchi probiotics fights ulcer-causing Helicobacter pylori bacteria.
Further, kimchi produces beneficial SCFA’s (short chain fatty acids) which are reported to inhibit the development of invasive colon cancers. This is supported by numerous clinical findings, including some published in the Journal of Nutrition (2001: 131:3041S-3046S, and 2002: 132, 1012-1017).
Kimchi is so highly regarded in Korea that price increases in 2010, which followed poor weather conditions for harvesting the cabbage, were considered a national tragedy. However, you don’t have to worry about eating 40 kilos of kimchi each year or the price!

What are probiotics – and why do you need them?
As defined by word-renowned experts, probiotics are “live organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host organism.” This healthy bacteria helps support and maintain the necessary balance with unhealthy bacteria in the intestines.
Probiotics are consumed in fermented foods or dietary supplements with active live cultures. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and bifidobacteria are the most common microbes used in probiotics.
When you take antibiotics, you’re killing the “good” bacteria along with the “bad”.
The human body needs billions of probiotic bacteria to function effectively, and ideally we have large stores of them. However, due to poor diet, lifestyles, and overuse of medications, these “friendly” bacteria are destroyed. Replenishing probiotics is essential to:
- Restore the healthy flora in your gut…
- Produce B vitamins your body needs…
- Kill or inhibit yeast growth…
- Offset the negative effects of antibiotics…
