Your Microbiome. Your Health.

A healthy gut all starts with feeding it the right nutrition. If a healthy lifestyle and living your best life is important to you (like it is to us) you’ve likely already heard of probiotics and all the health benefits they offer.

But did you know prebiotics are just as important? So what is the difference between the prebiotics you need and the probiotics you take?

Well, the probiotic supplements you take can't do their job without prebiotic fiber. These non-digestible fiber compounds are called oligosaccharides and they ferment in the body. This results in a ton of good-for-you health benefits including boosting your immune system, lowering your risk of disease and yes - even helping with weight loss. 

So Prebiotics are special types of dietary fiber that feed the friendly bacteria in your gut. Now that we know how great prebiotics are for the health of our microbiome, we can’t stop there. Check out this handy list of the benefits and differences between prebiotics and probiotics:


Prebiotics

  • PREBIOTICS are a special form of dietary fiber that acts as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in your gut.
  • PREBIOTICS are not affected by heat, cold, acid or time.
  • PREBIOTICS can double the growth of good bacteria every 20 minutes.
  • PREBIOTICS provide a wide range of health benefits to the otherwise healthy person. Most of these have been medically proven.
  • PREBIOTICS nourish the good bacteria that everyone already has in their gut.
  • PREBIOTICS may be helpful for several chronic digestive disorders or inflammatory bowel disease.


Probiotics

  • PROBIOTICS are live bacteria in yogurt, dairy products and pills. There are hundreds of types of probiotics.
  • PROBIOTICS must be kept alive. They may be killed by heat, stomach acid or simply die with time.
  • PROBIOTICS require billions of bacteria to populate the gut and require the nutrition from PREBIOTICS to survive.
  • PROBIOTICS are not as clearly linked to health benefits as PREBIOTICS in healthy individuals.
  • PROBIOTICS must compete with the over 1000 bacteria species already in the gut.

Hunger is the body's way of letting us know it's time to refuel! In an ideal world, hunger strikes only every few hours and we are satisfied in between. If you can't relate to that, don't worry - you're not alone. From time to time, it can feel as if we are always constantly hungry, even shortly after eating. In this blog we're shining light on the top 8 reasons you always feel hungry, and how to combat them.
