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.
"Prebiotics", whether it be a food source or a supplement should be taken with a meal.
Why you ask??? Because it "FOOD"
Whereas . . . "probiotics" are most effective when taken on an empty stomach. This will assure that the probiotic gets to the gut as quickly as possible without having to compete with food to be digested.
And with that . . . the best time to take a "probiotic" is either first thing in the morning on an empty stomach before breakfast or before going to sleep at night.
Now . . . if the food choices I gave you above aren't your cup of tea . . . and you're in need of a compliant "PREbiotic" . . . click here and purchase yours today.
Tomorrow we'll talk about "food"
