Now that you know “The What and Why of Probiotics” you’ll want to know about their helpful partners in health, prebiotics. Prebiotics are essentially food for probiotics. They encourage the growth of existing good bacteria in your gut and could stimulate the growth of probiotics. As a result, prebiotics help to favor an optimal gastrointestinal health. There are many foods that naturally contain prebiotics, but often at low levels. According to unlockfood.ca (a website with content from Canadian Dieticians), the following foods are a source of prebiotics:
- whole grains,
- chicory root,
- dandelion root,
- elecampane root
- Jerusalem artichokes
It would be challenging to consume enough of these foods to get the amount of prebiotic a supplement can provide. To simplify things, look for a probiotic supplement, like koena, which includes a prebiotic. koena features prebiotics in all its adult formulas and comes in a range of options to match specific needs. It is also dairy, soy and gluten free, vegan friendly and contain no allergens or GMOs
