Probiotics are living bacteria that are needed for good health, which means good digestive health. , We tend to create them in our intestines, and we need them in balance to regulate our body functions, including hormone regulation. There are many different companies marketing their own strong probiotic brand, but whether we need them remains questionable. There are many forms of probiotics that occur naturally in our diet ̵
Probiotics, whether from food or nutritional supplements, are known to be beneficial, especially for people suffering from leaky gut or other intestinal disorders. They are also beneficial if you have just received a round of antibiotics. So the answer is which type of probiotics work best? Since there is so much controversy and there are so many different strains to choose from, I personally think that it is best to seek advice from your personal health advisor. Read your ingredients carefully and stay away from foods that are advertised as probiotics (like yoghurt) but contain too much sugar and artificial sweeteners.
What about prebiotics? Prebiotics keep probiotics alive. Most of our prebiotics come from our foods, including garlic, linseed, honey, quinoa, berries and sweet potatoes. If you have consumed too much animal protein and you have a poor diet of processed foods and are not adequately herbal, you need to improve prebiotic function by eating genuine foods.
Prebiotics are a type of non-digestible fiber. Prebiotic compounds pass through the upper part of your GI tract and remain undigested. Once they have passed the small intestine, they reach the colon and there they ferment. This fermentation is produced by the intestinal flora. The probiotics that we consume work more effectively if we have a sufficient number of prebiotics. It is the prebiotics that open the door to a higher level of health. It makes the probiotic more effective. Imagine prebiotics as the fuel that keeps the good bacteria alive. Probiotics and prebiotics work together to play a fundamental role in maintaining a good balance of intestinal bacteria.
My favorite prebiotic is called psyllium husk in powder form. I like to combine this with some organic apple juice and aloe gel and let my customers drink it morning and evening. I call it broom or cleaning drink. I do not think we take the time to eat well with our fast-paced lifestyle. This beverage helps to better balance the intestinal flora by removing waste (bad beetles).
