Prebiotics and Gut Health

Go with your gut

As you may have heard, your gut microbiome is one of the most important components of your overall health and well-being. The microbiome is a relatively new area of study, but researchers continue to find links between it and many diseases, including obesity, diabetes, allergies, asthma and autism. In fact it’s estimated that nearly 80 percent of all immune system cells are located in the gut, and these cells help keep the body strong and healthy.

A healthy gut microbiome will help you digest food and absorb nutrients more efficiently, protect against harmful bacteria, support immune function and even influence your mood and mental health.

But what does this have to do with prebiotic fiber? It turns out that prebiotic fiber can help promote a healthy gut microbiome by feeding good bacteria that live inside your digestive tract. These good germs will then work together with your body’s natural defenses to protect against disease and keep your digestive system running smoothly, as well as aiding in absorption of key nutrients.

So what is prebiotic fiber?

Prebiotic fiber is a type of dietary fiber that is non digestible. The official definition of prebiotics is “a substrate that allows certain beneficial microorganisms to grow.” Prebiotics are found naturally in some foods, like onions, garlic and bananas. They also come in supplements and probiotic foods, like yogurt or kefir. In order to benefit from prebiotic fiber, you must eat it regularly.

With the knowledge that prebiotics help aid in the absorption of nutrients, BIO PEAK Perfectly Balanced Hydration incorporates prebiotic plant fiber in every serving to help maximize the benefits of our exclusive organic nutrient blend.  Better gut health = Better absorption = Maximum benefits
