A natto bean a day keeps the doctor away

Natto beans are superfoods that are full of protein, vitamin k, vitamin PQQ (powerful antioxidant) and probiotics. They have been touted to maintain bone density, keep skin and heart healthy, thin blood, among other things. Natto beans are really fermented soybeans and the fermentation is said to increase digestibility and nutrient absorption.

Because of the unusual taste, slimy texture and infamous smell of natto beans, some may find it difficult to like. I personally find that those on the shelves of supermarkets come with nice sauces and the smell is barely there.

Here’s to more natto beans and good health in the new year!
