Digestive herbs full of bioactive substances
Herbs are rich in aromatic compounds that add flavor to your food. They are not only flavorful but also highly nutritious. Herbs are packed with vitamins, minerals, and bioactive compounds that serve as essential building blocks for enzymes. Moreover, herbs are known for their high concentration of antioxidants. As a result, herbs play a significant role in vital body processes such as digestion and metabolism.
The benefit of fermented herbs
Similar to food, supplements, and herbs can also undergo fermentation. This practice is becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. Through fermentation, the naturally occurring phytochemicals in herbs, for instance, become more bioavailable, allowing for better absorption by your body. This enhances the benefits derived from the various beneficial substances present in the herbs.
