5. Fermented Foods
Another principle that’s highly regarded and recommended in an Ayurvedic lifestyle is fermented foods. Fermented foods have a host of benefits to the body, mostly due to their probiotic content. They also aid the immune system and help clear the blood and digestive tract of toxins. Fermented foods include kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt, cultured veggies, and miso as the most popular, though there are a few others you might be aware of too. Fermented foods are also high in certain amino acids that help prevent and treat inflammation in the gut. In Ayurvedic lifestyles, the gut is the main source of energy and wellness, and it is considered top priority to take care of it.
