Dragon Herbs KimQi ProBio
Dragon Herbs KimQi Probio is freeze dried kimchi, a Korean dish made from fermented cabbage, red pepper, ginger, garlic, and sea salt. This tasty food is full of beneficial living probiotics, the "good" bacteria that reside in your gut and balance your intestinal flora.
Kimchi is a naturally cultured raw vegetable dish that originated in ancient Korea. Kimchi is such a popular condiment in Korea (the average person eats 40 pounds of it every year), that locals say "kimchi" instead of "cheese" when getting their pictures taken!
In ancient times, kimchi was made of greens and salt, and then transitioned to include sliced radishes. When chili was introduced to Korea in the 1500s, it became another great addition to kimchi. Different varieties of kimchi evolved from region to region, with the addition of fish or shellfish in certain areas. Family kimchi recipes were passed down from generation to generation, with most Korean wives learning the art of kimchi making from their mother-in-laws after marriage.
Kimchi is traditionally prepared in the fall, and preserved for the winter months when fresh greens are not as accessible. Earthenware pots are packed with cabbage (and sometimes radishes), marinated with mixed seasonings, and buried in the backyard of the home.
The tangy, zesty flavor of kimchi has surpassed geographical boundries, and this condiment-side-dish-pickle-or-salad dish is popular worldwide, more than 4,000 years after greens were first perserved as cultured, raw vegetables.
Health Benefits of Kimchi
Kimchi can boast of many health promoting benefits, with the most prevelant being the beneficial probiotic microbes that are produced during the culturing process.
Kimchi is a rich source of vitamin C. When captain James Cook sailed in the 1700s, he served his crew a daily ration of fermented, cured cabbage to fend off scurvy!
Kimchi is also high in fiber, and is a great source of vitamins like thiamine and riboflavin, two B complex vitamins, and essential minerals like calcium and iron. Kimchi is also a low calorie condiment.

Dragon Herbs KimQi ProBio contains over 200 varieties of beneficial lactic acid bacteria, including all essential probiotic bacteria needed by humans.

- • Compete with "bad" bacteria for resources in gut
