Miso is a wonder, not just for it's flavor but the digestive health benefits are what really stand out.
Miso is a healthy, probiotic food that helps support digestion by adding beneficial microorganisms to your digestive tract. Nutritionally, miso paste is rich in several of the B-complex vitamins and contains essential minerals, including calcium, iron, zinc, copper and magnesium.
Miso fermentation helps improve the body's ability to digest and absorb foods. Miso also contains probiotics that can promote gut health and digestion. Having a healthy gut flora is very important because it helps defend your body against toxins and harmful bacteria.
