Health Benefits of Tempeh

Health Benefits of Tempeh

What is Tempeh?

Tempeh is a soy product from Indonesia that is made through a controlled fermentation process. While it has been a traditional, staple food in that region for generations, it has only recently become popular in the rest of the world. The rise of veganism has made meat and protein-replacement foods highly desired, and tempeh has consistency and durability that allows it to be manipulated in many different ways.

Tempeh Is A Powerful Probiotic Food

Like all soy products, tempeh is an effective and nutritious probiotic food. Probiotic foods go above and beyond to support the body’s immune system. Probiotics can be characterized as microorganisms and yeasts. Contrary to popular beliefs, there are two types of bacteria and tempeh is the good kind.

With certain microorganisms in the body, it could lead to chronic illnesses, inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune disorders. That’s why you need a healthy diet of tempeh for its probiotic benefits. That said, probiotics help encourage normal thyroid function, bone health, and gut health.

One of the major health benefits of probiotic foods is supporting the digestive system against inflammation and ulcers. Other health benefits are defending against arthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

 Tempeh keep your heart health

We also know that fermented soy foods like tempeh have more bioactive peptides than non-fermented soy foods. (Peptides are smaller breakdown parts of proteins.) In the case of fermented soy foods, two key storage proteins—glycinin and conglycinin—are broken down by molds, yeasts, and bacteria into peptide fragments that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and blood pressure-lowering properties.

Contains natural antibiotics

Rhizopus moulds produce natural, heat-stable antibiotic agents against some disease-causing organisms. Indonesians who eat tempeh as a regular part of their diet recognize it as a medicine for dysentery and rarely fall victim to the intestinal diseases to which they are constantly exposed.

Grapefruit / SUPER FOOD

Grapefruit / SUPER FOOD

It Has Been Shown to Aid Weight Loss

Grapefruit is a weight loss friendly food.

It has several properties linked to weight loss, especially its fiber content, which helps promote fullness and reduce calorie intake .

Additionally, grapefruit contains few calories but lots of water, which is another characteristic known to help with weight loss .

Other studies have found similar weight-reducing effects. For instance, one study found that participants experienced a reduced waist size when they consumed grapefruit daily with their meals .

Grapefruit can lower triglyceride levels

There’s another reason grapefruit can be good for your heart: It reduces levels of triglycerides. Triglycerides are another type of fat—like “bad” LDL cholesterol—which can quickly clog up your arteries.

The same study that found that adding one grapefruit a day lowered cholesterol levels also found that this simple daily regimen —by as much as 27%. This was in patients who already had coronary artery disease and so were at high risk for heart attacks and other complications.

Red grapefruit, in particular, surpassed its “blond” cousins in lowering triglycerides.

Stroke

According to the American Heart Association, eating higher amounts of flavonoid may lower the risk of ischemic stroke for women. Flavonoids are compounds found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit.

The risk of ischemic stroke was 19 percent lower for those who consumed the highest amounts of citrus than for women who consumed the lowest amounts.
