Prebiotic supplements are beneficial for gut health and the functioning of the digestive system. Prebiotics and probiotics are often used by those who suffer from poor digestive health, but also by healthy individuals looking to boost their digestion and the levels of beneficial gut bacteria.
Prebiotics and probiotics are two terms that you’ve probably heard a lot about in relation to gut health. Probiotics are the good type of bacteria that we need in our digestive system to balance the bad bacteria and they can help to provide a wide range of health benefits. You can consume these healthy bacteria through supplements or by eating a balanced diet, particularly one that’s rich in fermented foods, such as yoghurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, and sourdough bread.
Prebiotics are indigestible plant fibre that probiotics eat to produce more good bacteria and support a healthy gut and immune system. You can find prebiotic fibre in Jerusalem artichokes, asparagus, radicchio, apples, pears, fennel, leeks, chicory root and much more.
Prebiotic supplements are natural supplements that you can take to boost your intake of prebiotics and further fuel the production of probiotics. GoodnessMe stock some of the best prebiotic supplements in Australia with a great range of vegan protein powders, prebiotic blends full of fibre and nutrients, wholefood bars and formulas that are packed with both prebiotics and probiotics to improve and maintain the digestive system and promote overall health and wellbeing. Shop them online today with free delivery Australia-wide over $75.
Studies suggest that prebiotic supplements can maximise the benefits and deliver a range of potential health benefits to the body, including:
When you take prebiotic supplements, you are helping to feed the live microorganisms that your body needs to maintain optimal health. Since prebiotics are plant-based fibre that’s unable to be digested by the body, it travels down through the intestines to reach the colon where it is then fermented and transformed into food for probiotics, such as healthy bacteria and yeast.
Prebiotics are also unaffected by enzymes and gastric acids which is great news for probiotics! This means they can reach your colon intact without being destroyed or degraded in any way as can happen with probiotics when passing through your digestive system. Prebiotic supplements are also more durable with a much longer shelf life than probiotic supplements as they contain no living bacteria.
Prebiotic supplements come in different forms, from protein powders and handy sachets to on-the-go prebiotic snacks, such as wholefood bars. You can take prebiotic supplements on their own or combined with probiotic supplementation for the ultimate gut-friendly routine. Check out these popular prebiotic supplements available online at GoodnessMe:
You can take prebiotics by eating prebiotic foods, such as jerusalem artichokes, bananas and asparagus, or by taking a prebiotic supplement. If you’re taking a prebiotic supplement in powder form, it should be mixed into a drink, such as water or a breakfast smoothie, or stirred into food, such as cereal or yoghurt. Our Nutra Organics protein powders can also be used in raw and baked treats.
You can combine a prebiotic supplement with a probiotic supplement, creating what’s called a synbiotic effect. Try to take the probiotic about 15 minutes before the prebiotic on an empty stomach to ensure they don’t interact too soon. We recommend to seek advice from a health practitioner before introducing supplements and changing your diet.
