What are "PREbiotics"

Okay so yesterday we spoke of the importance of "PRObiotics" and that a "spore-forming" one would be best.

Well today . . . we need to talk about the food that feeds "PRObiotics" and that would be . . .

"PREbiotics" . . . and guess what???

If you don't consume "PREbiotics" to feed the "PRObiotics" you won't be as successful in your mission of rebuilding your "good" bacteria.


Well . . . because they need to eat too.

Now . . . "PREbiotics" are types of dietary "fiber" that feed our friendly "good" bacteria in our gut. This helps the gut bacteria produce nutrients for the cells in the colon which leads to a healthier digestive system.

So what are some foods high in "prebiotics"???

Well . . . that would be . . . Chicory root, dandelion greens, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, bananas, barley, apples, konjac root, yacon root, jicama root, seaweed, and flaxseed.

Okay . . . so a key factor with "prebiotics" is this . . .

"PRE" and "PRO" should not be taken at the same time for them to work correctly with each other. Therefore . . . do not purchase a supplement that contains both.

You see . . . "PREbiotic" fiber helps feed and strengthen "PRO"biotic bacteria so they can be more effective "colonizing" the gut.
