Posture is king!

Are you getting the full benefit of your probiotic?

Did you know that without Prebiotics your probiotics have nothing to eat and just pass through without providing benefits?

The term “PREbiotic” refers to the food that “PRObiotics” eat – which is primarily dietary fiber found in plant-based foods. One of the reasons high fiber foods like fruits and vegetables are so healthy for us is that they provide prebiotic fiber for our healthy probiotic bacteria to eat.

To be classified as a prebiotic, the fibre must pass through the GI tract undigested and stimulate the growth and/or activity of certain 'good' bacteria in the large intestine. Prebiotics include fructans and galacto-oligosachairdes (GOS).

So what can you eat to get your prebiotic to feed your probiotic?

Not all plant foods function in this way, but those containing specific types of soluble fiber—including wheat dextrin—do. Prebiotics are found in:
• onions
•garlic
•leeks
•soybeans
•chicory root
•honey
•banana
•Jerusalem artichoke
•cabbage
•Broccoli
