Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres, which means the small intestine can’t break them down, so they travel to the large intestine and become food for the beneficial bacteria that live there. In other words, prebiotics are food for probiotics.
One of the most important of these fibres is inulin. Inulin improves gut health, nourishes the cells of our colon and helps to relieve constipation. Studies have also shown that inulin helps to regulate blood sugar, and helps us to absorb calcium and magnesium.
Our ancestors consumed a lot more inulin than we do these days. If you are on a mission to restore your gut, prebiotics are just as necessary as probiotics. Prebiotics are in fact a great daily addition for supporting over all gut health and well being,
The best source of inulin is Chicory root, which is the star of our Prebiotic Powder. It also includes ::
~ Dandelion root
~ Burdock root
~ Elecampane root
These fibrous roots are rich sources of inulin, and have a host of other medicinal benefits including liver support, cleaning the lymphatic system and maintaining adrenal health.
