Prebiotics: The Most Important Part Of Health
Is there a food that improves probiotics? Probiotics are living things and need food, so what are the foods that probiotics need?
Today I'm going to be talking about prebiotics. Now I bet you probably thought I was going to be talking about probiotics or dietary fiber in terms of your overall gut health. But actually prebiotics are that silent partner, really the glue that I think holds all the of this together.
Essentially, what is a prebiotic? Prebiotics are just simply foods that the probiotics feed off of. The best way that I like to explain it, let's say that you have a lawn that you're trying to start, you throw down the grass seed, which are the probiotics. You have to throw down some fertilizer to get that grass growing good, green and strong.
So that's what a prebiotic is. It's essentially a non-digestible fiber that you consume and it passes your digestive tract, that goes through and eventually settles in your colon where it serves as food, as I mentioned, for the probiotics. So it's really important if you take probiotics, if you start taking prebiotics, as well.
In this podcast episode below, I explain which types of foods actually improve probiotics and the health of your gut. Just like fertilizer of a lawn; you have to give your gut the nutrients it needs in order to allow the probiotics to grow and be happy.
