Pretty Prebiotics and Probiotics are a Guts Best Friend

by Jul 21, 2019Blog, Featured Blog27 comments

Bacteria, good and bad govern our health.  The amount in our body weighs as much as our brains! Because bacteria exist on and in our skin, airway, and digestive system, it acts as the first line of defense against a world of pathogens (infection agents). The bad kind; that which causes gum disease, or colitis, for example can lead to serious illness.  The good kind can break down toxins, carbohydrates, protect the intestines, and promote the repair of damaged tissue.  Each of us has our own personalized bacterial environment, called a microbiome that begins the day we are born and continues daily, helping to develop a healthy immune system. 

Our good bacteria’s ability to keep the bad in check is a delicate balance. When the microbiome is disrupted through the proliferation of harmful bacteria, it throws the immune system out of whack, setting the body up for inflammation.

Inflammation is the body’s warning system that something is wrong.  Persistent inflammation is hugely debilitating and can lead to such diseases as inflammatory bowel disease.  Researchers are studying how probiotics can reduce and eliminate chronic inflammation.  They are the living microorganisms found inside the gut that aid in digestion. As a living entity, probiotics need to be fed.  Prebiotics are the food for probiotics.

Prebiotics are undigestible plant fiber that feeds the probiotics; thereby supporting its work to reduce inflammation, increase the absorption of minerals, and promote weight loss.   Many whole fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of prebiotics such as bananas, onions, garlic, asparagus, oats, wheat, and soybeans.  The more prebiotics for probiotics, the more efficient and healthier your gut will be.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a
    superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot
    and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

      Hi Shauna,
      The easiest way to write is to just start. It doesn’t matter the organization, flow, or grammatical errors, you will fix those. More important is getting your thoughts out of your head and in writing. Don’t stop. Keep going. You can do it, and it gets easier with persistence.
      Best Wishes,

      I sure hope so. Writing a weekly blog takes a lot of research and fact-checking, but it is all worth it when we receive compliments such as yours.

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

      Hi Nishimori,

      I did not build my website. I hired a web developer on Upworks. Phil Albrecht is his name if you would like to consult with him. I do recommend him.

    With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique
    content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    • Andrea

      Hello Olliedelvalle,

      Thanks for being in touch. I don’t have a suggestion for mitigating the plagiarism of your writing. My only suggestion is to correspond with the plagiarizer and let them know that you are aware of what they have done. Perhaps that will put them on notice, and the behavior will stop.
      Good luck and best wishes for your continued success.
