Nature's #1 PRE-biotic Found In These Foods
An email I am sharing with you from Joel,
If you've watched our breakthrough Toxic Belly Bug video (now with more than 3 million views!) then you know the #1 thing you MUST do for your gut health, and overall health, is rebalance the "good" to "bad" ratio of bacteria in your gut by consuming more probiotics.
You also know that most probiotic supplements are a complete waste of time and money and carry no benefit. That's why it's important to choose a probiotic supplement that uses patented Microencapsulation Technology to protect each fragile probiotic cell as it's delivered to your gut.
In addition to consuming more probiotics, you'll also want to be sure to consume more PRE-biotics on a daily basis to feed the healthy bacteria in your gut.
What are prebiotics?
As alluded above, prebiotics are a specific type of non-digestible fiber that stimulates the growth of the healthy probiotic bacteria in your gut. By ensuring you are consuming ample probiotics and prebiotics daily, you can rebalance your gut bacteria and KEEP it balanced by feeding those healthy scavengers in your gastrointestinal tract that do so much for your health.
The most common prebiotic found in nature is a compound called inulin, and it's found in modest amounts in these 8 foods:
Still, getting enough prebiotics through the above foods alone can be difficult and would require you to consume large amounts of these foods daily. For example, you'd have to consume 1.3 lbs of bananas or quarter pound of cooked onions daily to get 6g of prebiotic inulin. The raw versions of the above foods contain slightly more inulin per ounce, but probably like you, we're not people who eat raw onion or chicory root on a daily basis (We'll share a nifty salsa recipe that you can enjoy from time to time in a minute that actually contains a good amount of these raw foods and a healthy dose of prebiotic fiber).
That said, because inulin is naturally sweet, coupled with its powerful prebiotic properties, it also makes a great addition to healthy food products... and that's exactly why we've included inulin prebiotic fiber in each of these incredibly delicious BioTrust Products:
==> BioTrust Low Carb (4g of fiber per serving)
==> BioTrust Protein Cookies (5 - 6g of fiber per cookie)
==> BioTrust Organic Protein Bars (14g of fiber per bar)
