Fermented foods, such as Sakekasu, has 10 times the fiber than rice helping with constipation, and supposedly has over 100 enzymes which help lower cholesterol and prevent diabetes and obesity. Sakekasu also contains ceramide which promotes the natural exfoliation of the skin aiding with moisture, elasticity and removing discoloration.
