  6. The Pros of Probiotics & Good Gut Health
    • What are Probiotics?
      Probiotics are living bacteria that work together with your body providing numerous health benefits. They are beneficial bacteria that help maintain proper balance in your digestive system
    • 70-90% of your immune system is located in your GI tract.
    • We have 100 trillion bacteria in our colons, including over 1000 different types, with most of them being beneficial.
    • Human brain 3 lbs VS Bacteria living in a healthy body 3.5 lbs
    • “Probiotics are the next vitamins” – Dr Shekhar Challa
    • Even though probiotic-rich foods are healthful choices, you need to take a probiotic supplement to ingest enough bacteria to make a difference. Supplements are especially important if you’re treating a specific illness, such as IBS or other health issues.
  7. Prebiotics – Living microorganisms that benefit health when consumed in sufficient amounts.
    Prebiotic Foods – Fruits, Vegetables, Grains
    Probiotics – Substances in food that humans can’t digest, which probiotics use for energy. Many types of dietary fiber are prebiotic.
    Probiotic Foods – Yogurt, Kefir, Fermented Foods
  8. Prebiotic Labeling – You can also find prebiotics in foods like granola bars and cereals. Inulin and oligosaccharides are prebiotics that you might find in a food ingredients list.
    Probiotic Labeling – Not every kind of yogurt and fermented food contains probiotics. Look for the phrase “contains live and active cultures” and specific bacteria strains in the ingredients list.
  9. The Journey
    • Pre-and probiotics are found in food and supplements
    • Both travel to the lower digestive tract
    • Prebiotics are fermented by probiotics
    • Beneficial effects on our gut and overall health
  10. PRE-biotics – Food for bacteria, Substances that can only be metabolised by gut bacteria and not the human host.
    SYN-biotics – A combination of both pro and prebiotics.
    PrO-biotics – Live bacteria, active bacterial cultures.
  11. 6 Health Benefits of Prebiotics
    1. Improved digestion
    2. Stronger immune system
    3. Better nutrient absorption
    4. Sustainable weight loss
    5. Natural detoxification
    6. Stress support
  12. Prebiotic Killers
    • Consuming prebiotics with tea, caffeine or aerated drinks
    • Overuse of prescription antibiotics
    • Alcohol (except red wine)
    • Smoking
    • Sugar
    • GMO foods
    • Lack of exercise
    • Emotional stress

    • Poor sleep habits
    • Unhealthy fats
    • Tap water with chlorine and fluoride
  13. What is a Prebiotic?
    A prebiotic is food for beneficial members of your resident microbial community – we can’t digest prebiotics, but certain beneficial microbes can. Your resident microbes can produce a variety of beneficial compounds (for example, short-chain fatty acids) from the use of prebiotics. These can promote a healthy gut – and beyond. In more technical terms, a prebiotic is a substance that is selectively utilized by host microorganisms conferring a health benefit.
  14. Do we need both fiber and prebiotics?
    Most of us do not get enough fiber in our diets. Increasing fiber-rich foods and prebiotic-containing foods or supplements will help promote gut health and benefit your gut microbiota, too.
