What are probiotics and prebiotics?

Probiotics are bacteria present in a person’s digestive tract, and they help support the body’s immunity and ability to absorb nutrients. Consuming probiotics and prebiotics can help keep a healthy and balanced digestive system and gut.

Probiotics occur naturally in cultured and fermented foods. Examples of food with naturally occurring probiotics: yogurt, kefir, miso, raw dairy, sourdough bread and starter, sauerkraut, kimchi and all other fermented veggies, kombucha and many cheeses.

Prebiotics are a type of non-digestible fiber compound. Prebiotics help feed probiotics. Prebiotics include raw chicory root, raw garlic, raw or cooked onions, raw asparagus, raw dandelion greens, raw leeks, raw jicama and underripe bananas.

Sakara has the best probiotics. These pills contain probiotics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes. * This is not sponsored. I love Sakara‘s message and their use of real food and ingredients in an elevated way. A post coming soon about my love for Sakara!
