Everyone has a strong desire to live long in good health.

There are several factors for longevity. What is most important is to raise human immunity so as to be free from diseases.

Bodybuilding is good to this end, but regimen, too, has the lion’s share.

Kimchi, a traditional food of the Korean nation, has been known as a fermented food prerequisite to raising immunity.

As one of five health foods in the world, it is a low-fat fibrous food. It is rich in vitamins A, B complex and C, and germs favourable for health, which promote digestion and arrest the growth of cancerous cells.

It is divided into four kinds according to seasons, and has scores of kinds according to the demands of people and local areas. Its recipe is also different.

In recent years, leeks, Tanbaekcho and potato are used in making kimchi.

Amid the growing worldwide interest in it, the kimchi-making custom, a national intangible cultural heritage of the DPRK, was inscribed on the list of world intangible cultural heritage at the 10th Session of UNESCO Inter-governmental Committee for Protecting Intangible Cultural Heritage held in Windhoek, Namibia.

When SARS was sweeping over the world, a foreign media reported that the DPRK is free from the epidemic because its people eat kimchi.

Today, the world is threatened by flu and other epidemics. Such being the situation, you are recommended to take kimchi.
