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.

So a daily helping of tiger nuts can help you feel HEALTHY and HAPPY! 

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. What you eat can quickly change your microbes, and your mood, but are you eating the right foods to help your good gut bacteria?
