We’ve all heard of probiotics but what about prebiotics?🥑
Prebiotics are present in fiber-rich foods such as fruit and vegetables & wholegrains and act as food for the Probiotics. Probiotics are found in fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi and tempeh.🥑
They both support the body in building and maintaining a healthy colony of bacteria and other microorganisms, which supports the gut and aids digestion. Eating balanced amounts of both pro- and prebiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria, which should improve your health🥑
How are you supporting your gut health? For a start ensure you’re eating plenty of prebiotics like spinach, kale, brocili, avacados, berries (think colours of the rainbow) Feed the probiotics, a bit like fertilizing the crops and create good gut bacteria. The gut bacteria help with a variety of biological tasks. They also provide important nutrition to the cells lining your digestive tract.🥑
What’s your favorite prebiotic? Mine….. Avacados & Kale.
My tip for Kale, season with salt and pepper and drizzle in coconut oil then roast in the oven until crispy. What’s yours?
