Prebiotics Are Plant Fibers –
Prebiotics are plant fibers found in the food you eat. Many plants have them, but rarely in high amounts. And the plants that have the most (in order) – chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, dandelion greens, garlic, leeks, onions, asparagus, wheat bran and banana – may not be showing up on your plate very often.
Fiber in Food
Generally, most people don't get enough fiber. Ideally, if your diet is high in whole grains, vegetables and fruits, it can provide sufficient levels of fiber to feed your digestive tract’s probiotic bacteria properly. If your bacteria thrive, they can “competitively exclude” dangerous increases in pathogenic bacteria. But when good bacteria are diminished by low fiber intake, antibiotics, illness, unhealthy diets, stress and environmental challenges, your numbers of bad bacteria can rise.
Undigestible But Fermentable
Plant foods have two types of fiber. Soluble and insoluble. Soluble can dissolve in water and insoluble can’t. All fiber-containing foods have a combination of both. Prebiotic fibers are soluble fibers that are not digested in your stomach or small intestine, but travel to your large intestine where they are fermented. Fermentation breaks these fibers down to provide nutrient nourishment to your probiotic bacteria.
Absorption by Fibers
Both soluble and insoluble fiber types can absorb and carry significant volumes of water as they pass through your GI tract. This helps in softening your waste material, easing demands on your digestive system transport and reducing constipation. Plus, insoluble fibers collect carcinogens and other toxins, keeping them from being absorbed into your cells and bloodstream, and helping to move them out of your system more quickly.
4 Digestive Enzymes
Getting nutrients from any food requires the right levels of digestive enzymes. These digestive enzymes are naturally found in your mouth, stomach and small intestine. But as we get older, our levels of digestive enzymes may begin to decrease and may become deficient. ProBiotein gives you 4 digestive enzymes – amylolytic, fibrolytic, phospholytic and proteolytic enzymes – to help you digest starch and sugar, fiber, minerals and protein better.
Here to Help
Good “probiotic” bacteria do good things. They help regulate your immune system, digest your food, create energy and even synthesize vitamins. When they thrive, you’re at your healthiest. But when they’re diminished by antibiotics, illness or an unhealthy diet, they can’t work at their best. The 4 prebiotic fibers in ProBiotein can help keep your probiotic bacteria working well.
After starting to take ProBiotein, most people notice a good change in their digestion in 3 to 5 days. ProBiotein promotes a healthier GI tract, which may help begin to displace pathogenic bacteria, avoid constipation and shorten digestive transit time. That can mean less chance for pathogens to linger and do harm.
Take ProBiotein daily. Eat more whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Exercise.
