IMPORTANCE OF PREBIOTICS
Prebiotics can only be found in plant foods, mostly vegetables. Prebiotics are a specialized plant fiber that beneficially nourishes the good bacteria already found in the large colon. While probiotics introduce good bacteria into the gut, prebiotics act as a fertilizer for the good bacteria that is already present. They help your good bacteria grow and improve the good to bad bacteria ratio.
Not actually a nut, but a small root vegetable, Tigernuts are the highest food source of resistance starch, a highly beneficial prebiotic. Tiger nuts are also an excellent plant based source of protein. Eat by the handful as a snack or mix into salads, cereals, trail mixes or any other way you’d eat a nut!
