Absorption/bioavailability of nutrients is immensely important and a crucial condition for the efficacy of a dietary supplement. By fermenting medicinal plants, imbalances in the gut microbiome can be circumvented as the microorganisms participating in the fermentation process take on the biotransformation task by pre-digesting the plant.
