Weekly Nutrition Tip
Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible food ingredients that are linked to promoting the growth of helpful bacteria in your gut. Simply said, they're "good" bacteria promoters. That's right, not all bacteria are bad! Prebiotics may improve gastrointestinal health as well as potentially enhance calcium absorption. Bananas, onions, garlic, leek, asparagus, artichokes, soybeans, and whole-wheat foods are great pre-biotic choices. To obtain more probiotics in your diet and reap the benefits, try enjoying fermented dairy foods and incorporating them into your diet. Yogurt, kefir products, and aged cheeses contain live prebiotic cultures. Some non-dairy foods will also contain benefirial cultures, including kimchi, sauer kraut, miso, tempeh, and soy beverages.
