Do you want to boost your health, energy, and mood with one simple change? Then you need to learn about prebiotics. These are not the same as probiotics, which are live bacteria that you get from foods like yogurt and sauerkraut. Prebiotics are compounds that feed and support the growth of good bacteria and fungi in your gut. These microorganisms use prebiotics such as fiber to grow and produce beneficial substances like vitamin b12. The relationship between our microbiome and our body is complex and not fully understood, but we know that our diet plays a key role in it.

Different types of bacteria, fungi, and yeast in our microbiome prefer different types of fiber or food. Some of the harmful bacteria thrive on sugar and simple carbs like white bread. Some of the good bacteria prefer complex carbs and various fibers like those in whole foods like apples or celery. For a healthy biome, we need a balance of different bacteria. We don’t want to have too much or too little of any group.

The best way to achieve this is by eating a diverse range of prebiotic foods every day. Focus on plant-based whole foods. Choose different grains, herbs, spices, fruits, and vegetables. Eat some of them raw and some of them cooked when appropriate. This will help you feed as many different microorganisms as possible. Over time, you’ll create a thriving microbiome that will benefit your whole body. A healthy microbiome can boost your immunity, digestion, mood, and energy levels. If you are taking probiotics, prebiotics are essential to help them flourish and thrive in your gut.
