Probiotics and Prebiotics

“Gut Health” is such a big thing at the moment.. And so it should be. Our Gut is classed as our “2nd Brain” which means when our Brain is out of sorts, our whole body is. Same goes for our Gut.

You have no doubt heard about Probiotics and Prebiotics. I will keep this short and to the point as to not bombard with too much overload.

Basically, Probiotics are found in yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, miso, kombucha, pickles, traditional buttermilk, Natto, cheddar, mozzarella and Gouda.

These are foods full of friendly bacteria that helps keep our Gut (flora) healthy. We now know that we need to eat these and are good for us, but we now need to feed that bacteria. Bring on the Prebiotics ! Our body can’t digest this type of fiber but the Probiotic bacteria is what eats this ! 😱 Prebiotic foods are chicory root, dandelion greens, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, bananas, barley, oats, apples, Konjac root, cocoa, burdock root, flaxseeds, yacon root, jicama root, wheat bran and seaweed.

Eating a balance ⚖️ of both the prebiotic and probiotic foods may see improvements in your health.
