1)PROBIOTICS: These are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements.
The benefits of probiotics include their ability to support your immune, digestive,neurological systems, and also improve the health of your skin, crowd out bad bacteria, yeast and fungi in your gut and produce important nutrients like vitamin B12, vitamin K2 and butyrate.
Sources of probiotics:
Yogurt, buttermilk, curd,Kimchi, Kombucha tea,Kefir (dairy and non-dairy).Some types of pickles (non-pasteurized)
2) PREBIOTICS : These substances come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can't digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber.
When consumed, prebiotic compounds pass through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract undigested because the body can’t break them down. They then move into the colon, where they are fermented by the gut microflora. During this process, the prebiotics act as sources of fuel for the nutrients in the digestive tract, including the good bacteria that live in your gut.
Legumes, beans and peas, Oats,Bananas, Berries, Asparagus, Dandelion greens, Garlic and Onions.
Keeping your gut bacteria balanced is important for many aspects of health.
To do this, eat plenty of prebiotic and probiotic foods, as they will help promote the most ideal balance between good and bad gut bacteria.
At the end of the day, optimizing your gut flora may have major benefits for your health.
