Shape your Body, Fuel Your Gut

More bacteria live and work in one cm of your colon than the number of people who have ever existed in the world.

 

While you’re taking care of that gorgeous body, don’t forget what’s on the inside.

As astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said, “More bacteria live and work in 1cm of your colon than the number of people who have ever existed in the world…”

You might wonder: What are they doing?

Answer: A lot! A healthy gut includes many hundreds of types of bacteria and other microbes and they depend on what you eat every day.

Prebiotics are Nutrients for Your Inner Life – Pre-biotics Go Beyond Pro-biotics

Prebiotics are part of many healthy foods, most commonly fruits and vegetables, that pass through your small intestine intact (they don’t provide calories to you). They reach the large intestine intact, where they feed gut bacteria. When the bacteria consume the prebiotics, they provide a multitude of health benefits.

If you eat a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables, congratulations! You’re probably getting enough prebiotics, like dietary fiber and a micronutrient called polyphenol antioxidants from the colorful skins of fruits and veggies. If you don’t, BiomeBliss may be the perfect solution.

Prebiotics bolster the naturally occurring bacteria in your gut, so that they can flourish in both number and in their health-supporting activities. When they are well-fed, they produce healthy molecules in your gut and your body will feel the impact.

If you take probiotics that’s okay too, but you’ll want to feed those microbes too. Prebiotics are the force-multiplier for natural microbes and probiotics. They’ll have a better chance to do something useful.
