A Healthy Gut Flora is KEY to Good Health!

The millions of microbes in your gut play a critical role in digestion, immune function and weight regulation, and they even have a role to play improving mood.

Understanding the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic is vital – Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria. Eating probiotics doesn’t always work well because they are killed by your stomach acids before they get to your gut.

But prebiotics are carbohydrates or fibre that gets to your gut and feeds your good gut bacteria. Feeding your ‘good’ gut bacteria can help you repopulate your gut flora and rebuild your gut health, changing your microbes, your health and your mood 

A daily helping of tiger nuts can feed your gut microbes and help you feel HEALTHY and HAPPY!
