A Free Guide to Gut Health at Flannerys

14/2/2024

Dive into the fascinating world of gut health at one of Peg Paste's premium stockists, Flannerys Organic Market. Consult with Flannerys’ friendly, onsite naturopath to explore the difference between prebiotics and probiotics, along with ways to boost your intake for optimal wellbeing.

Understanding the Difference: Prebiotics vs. Probiotics

Prebiotics and probiotics are often mentioned together, but they serve different purposes in supporting digestive health. Probiotics are live bacteria that are beneficial for your gut. They help maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in your digestive system, which is essential for proper digestion and overall health.

On the other hand, prebiotics are a type of fibre that act as food for the beneficial bacteria already living in your gut. They help nourish and support the growth of these bacteria, promoting a thriving gut environment.

Rich Sources of Prebiotics and Probiotics

Now, let's talk about foods that are rich in probiotics and prebiotics:

Probiotics: Probiotics are commonly found in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, and kombucha. These foods contain live cultures of beneficial bacteria that can help populate your gut with healthy microbes.

Prebiotics: You can find prebiotics in many plant-based foods such as garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, bananas, apples, oats, and flaxseeds. These foods are packed with soluble fibre, which feeds the good bacteria in your gut and promotes their growth.

Additional Ways to Boost Intake

In addition to focusing on nutrition, there are several other avenues to boost your intake of prebiotics and probiotics beyond dietary sources:

Supplements: Consider incorporating prebiotic and probiotic supplements into your daily routine. These supplements come in various forms such as capsules, powders, and chewables, providing a convenient way to support your gut health.

Oral Care Products: Some oral care products, like PEG PASTE Natural Toothpaste, contain prebiotics that promote oral health and the growth of healthy, good bacteria (probiotics) in the oral microbiome. Consider incorporating PEG PASTE into your dental hygiene routine to support overall microbial balance.

Skin Care: Certain skincare products, like creams and lotions, may contain prebiotics that support the skin microbiome, promoting a healthy skin barrier and reducing inflammation. Look for skincare products specifically formulated with prebiotic ingredients to support your skin's natural balance.

By exploring these additional avenues to boost your intake of prebiotics and probiotics, you can support a thriving gut microbiome and promote optimal health from within.
