For a functioning immune system and gut, it is of paramount importance to regulate the gut bacteria flora. As most bacteria – good and bad die in the stomach – you need to eat food containing probiotics that shall overcome this protecting barricade and penetrate into the guts carrying proper pre- and probiotics. Prebiotics is the food giving energy to the probiotics such as lactobacillus and acidophilus.
The best probiotics are traditional sauerkraut in extra virgin olive oil and such that smoothly run through the stomach such as high-fat yoghurt where the fat will protect the probiotics against the acids in the stomach and still keep the probiotics intact until it decomposes throughout the guts.
To keep the probiotics working the need of pre-biotics properly has of lately been proven to be of vital significance where we have two forms of pre-biotics where one is FOS substances (fructooligosaccharides) found in garlic, onions, asparagus, pineapple and tomatoes.
Another study recently discovered pre-biotic that is outstandingly important for a functioning probiotics is resistant starch found in raw or boiled and cooled starch such as potatoes, rice, lentils, beans and other fiber-rich vegetables.
Check out the following video that in an obvious way show the function of pre- and probiotics where you cut out the last minutes of advertising and replace such synthetic drugs with natural biological foods such as a mix of sauerkraut, extra virgin olive oil and garlic with raw potatoes.
