Feed your Gut With Prebiotics: Food for Good Bacteria

Feed your Gut With Prebiotics: Food for Good Bacteria

Eat more apples, apricots, peaches, grapefruits, bananas, artichokes, jicama, cabbage, asparagus, garlic, onions, leeks, barley, lentils, chickpeas to keep your prebiotic food supply up. These prebiotics feed the 100 trillion Probiotics in your gut, so keep them healthy and strong with the right food. Conversely, not enough prebiotics, and fibres and too much refined sugars and carbohydrates cause bad gut bacteria to flourish causing gas, bloating, food intolerances, gut inflammation and poor serotonin levels. Keeping probiotics plentiful means we can make digestive enzymes, vitamin B12, and maintain healthy hormone and estrogen balance. We then have better digestion, better energy and better mental health.

Probiotics are found in yogurt, kefir, miso, kombucha, pickled vegetables, tofu, tempeh, mirin. If taking a supplement...Take 50 billion per day to restore gut health!
