KimChi stands apart from regular kraut because of the following components: Red pepper, ginger, garlic, and onion. What is notable is that each separate one of these four is among the top healing herbs throughout history. Entire books have been written about each of them – they have been used in hundreds of disease healing protocols. We know of no other food that contains all four of these super healers. Super hot! No kidding....know what you are doing before you order this kimchi!
