Pre- and Probiotics
For a healthy gut, we need to make sure we have a good population of both prebiotic and probiotic bacteria in our system. Did you know that you have more bacteria in your gut than cells in your body? Think of prebiotics as food for probiotic bacteria, so you need one for the survival of the other. Oats, almonds, kiwi, bananas, and garlic are excellent prebiotic foods. Yoghurt, fermented vegetables, cheese, and grains are the most potent sources of probiotics.
