You may have wondered why Koreans look younger than their age. Well, here is their secret to staying young.
Korean food has been gaining great popularity across the world. After the first lady of the U.S Michelle Obama once tweeted a simple Korean kimchi recipe, it evoked a strong interest in Korean food in the US. Its popularity rose sharply after celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jessica Alba have said they enjoy it.
Making Kimchi is as easy as preparing salad. Kimchi is made by combining salted cabbage with a mixture of julienned white radish, red chilli pepper powder, minced garlic, salted seafood sauce and other ingredients. Or, you can simply grab a pack of kimchi at any Korean grocery store across New Zealand - they are offering many different types of Kimchi, all ready to eat!
Kimchi has many health benefits and contains high amounts of nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acid, and dietary fire. Research has shown that regular consumption of kimchi could help prevent some of the effects of aging and cancer. Kimchi was once selected as one of the world’s five healthiest foods by the American health magazine, Health.
