InnerFuel Prebiotic is made with a plant-based prebiotic powder called Larch Arabinogalactan, which is derived from the bark and heartwood of the Larch tree.
PREbiotics and PRObiotics, what's the difference?
You have probably heard of the benefits to your digestive system from taking probiotics. They are made up of good bacteria that live in your intestines and are commonly found in fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir and yoghurt-based drinks.
These good bacteria help digestion, aid in vitamin production and also help fight against toxins. It is important to keep a good balance of these bacteria to keep you from feeling tired and bloated.
Many things in life can cause gut imbalance, such as eating processed foods, taking antibiotics, stress and even lack of sleep.
For probiotics to thrive, they need PREbiotics.
Prebiotic fiber is basically food for your good gut bacteria. Just like how our bodies won't function optimally without sufficient food, the good bacteria will also not function optimally without sufficient food - so the answer to your problems isn't to just take loads of probiotic foods, you also need to feed those probiotics with powerful nutrients from prebiotics!
Prebiotic fibers are found in many foods, here is a list of some foods that contain a good amount:
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- Pistachio Nuts
It is a good idea to have diverse gut bacteria and one of the best ways to support your gut health is to increase the amount of prebiotics in your diet. This will allow your body to absorb more nutrients from your food, contributes to the normal function of the immune system and metabolize fat. All of which will make you feel better!
- Organic acacia
