The Dynamic Duo for Better Gut Health
Yes, prebiotics, that promote good bacteria, and probiotics, that are good bacteria, work together synergistically; in other words, probiotics eat prebiotics. By adding health promoting functional foods, such as foods containing the dynamic duo into your diet, you can create a healthier you!
It’s recommended to include more prebiotics by eating foods with fiber, like bananas, soybeans, artichokes, raw chicory root, asparagus, leeks, garlic, and whole wheat foods. Introduce probiotics with fermented dairy foods like yogurt, kefir products and aged cheeses, which contain needed live cultures. There are non-dairy foods that have beneficial cultures too, like kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, tempeh and cultured non-dairy yogurts.
So go ahead and enjoy yogurt with some fresh fruit, sprinkled with some wheat germ, crushed nuts and a drizzle of honey. Your gut will love you for it!
