1. PREBIOTIC FOODS
Prebiotic foods are foods that do not break down in the digestive tract. Prebiotics are special plant fibres that help healthy bacteria grow in your gut. By feeding and growing these healthy bacteria, your digestive system will work more effectively.
Prebiotics are a source of food for your gut’s healthy bacteria. They’re carbs your body can’t digest. They go to your lower digestive tract, where they act as food to help the healthy bacteria grow. Microflora is the gut’s healthy bacteria that will help digest food. Vitamins such as biotin and vitamin K are made by microflora.
2. FERMENTED FOODS
Fermentation is a natural process where microorganisms like yeast and bacteria convert carbs — such as starch and sugar — into alcohol or acids.
The alcohol or acids act as a natural preservative and give fermented foods a distinct zest and tartness.
Fermentation also promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria, known as probiotics.
Probiotics have been shown to improve immune function as well as digestive and heart health.
Adding fermented foods to your diet can benefit your overall well-being.
