Welcome back to the blog! Today we are chatting all about probiotics and prebiotics to get everyone’s gut happy and healthy. As a family, we make sure to include at least one of our Favourite Vegan Probiotics in our bellies each day along with their partnering prebiotic friends. If you are new to adding either of these to your diet, then you may be super surprised at how many of these you are already intaking!
What are probiotics? Why do I need them?
They are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your digestive system and your overall health. Live bacteria may not sound good, but in fact, these are good bacteria that are super helpful because they keep our guts healthy. I am a firm believer in our gut being the basis of our health – so you bet your butt we ensure that we reach our daily requirement for them!
Another great benefit of probiotics is that they help your body to fight the good fight when you are on antibiotics. Antibiotics are great for fighting infections but you do lose a lot of good bacteria during this fight. By adding probiotics to your daily routine while also taking antibiotics, you are ensuring that your body is well armed for the big battle.
Probiotics also help to balance your good and bad bacteria to feel as good as you should. SO many of us have no idea how good our bodies can feel; we are so used to feeling sluggish and tired all the time. By listening to our bodies and taking the proper precautions, we can find out how amazing life can truly be.
