Prebiotics and Fibers: How They Affect Your Digestive Health

Prebiotics are ingredients in the food that induce the growth or activity of pre-existing beneficial bacteria, especially in the intestine (colon). The host microorganisms selectively use pre-biotics to produce a health benefit. Dietary pre-biotics are non-digestible fiber compounds that pass undigested through the upper part of the intestine and stimulate the activity of bacteria in the colon which manages digestive diseases and other health issues amicably. 

Digestive diseases are becoming increasingly common all over the world due to faulty lifestyles and indifferent food habits. Fortunately, fiber helps prevent and correct many of them. As a single ingredient, fiber is an incredible fighter against chronic diseases

EXOGENOUS PREBIOTICS (outside source):

Raw dry garlic, raw dry onion, raw wheat bran, whole wheat flour cooked, raw banana, raw oats, unrefined barley, whole grain, chickpeas, almonds, flax seeds

ENDOGENOUS PREBIOTICS (inside source for infants):

Breast milk contains oligosaccharides that increase the useful bacterial population in breastfed infants and strengthen the infant’s immune system.

There is no broad consensus on an ideal daily serving of exogenous pre-biotics. The recommended daily consumption range for general digestive support is from 4-8 grams. For those with active digestive disorders is from 9-15 grams or more. On average, the daily intake of prebiotics is 6 grams serving.
