Benefits of Pickles
Pickles have several different benefits, like:

- Control diabetes;
- Reduce Ulcers;
If pickles are stored fresh without being cooked, they preserve the antioxidants stored in them. Most noteworthy is that antioxidants protect the body against the threat of free radicals. Because free radicals are unstable chemicals that damage our DNA. Thus DNA becomes unstable itself thus creating more free radicals. Furthermore, free radicals are produced by cellular metabolism. So in order to protect ourselves, we need to consume a high amount of antioxidants.
Pickles help improve our digestion because they contain probiotics, which are friendly bacteria. Probiotics help in the digestion of food.Sometimes due to antibiotics and invading bacteria, the probiotics are killed.Therefore to counter this you should eat pickles that are made without vinegar. Fermented salt pickles help with the growth of probiotics, which will replenish the quantity that is in our digestive system and restore our health.
Fresh pickles supply our body with essential vitamins C, A, K, folate, and minerals like iron, calcium, and potassium. Vitamins and minerals are very important because they protect us from diseases, help build immunity, strengthen bones, enhances vision, as well as cure anemia.
