Functional Foods

FUNCTIONS OF DIGESTION.

A diet rich in whole foods including fruits, vegetables, dairy, and whole grains feed healthy bacteria in your gut fostering a healthy microbiome. 

Fermented foods such as kimchi, yogurt, and tempeh as well as polyphenols found in green tea, dark chocolate, and red wine promote gut health.

Prebiotics and probiotics work together to maintain healthy gut bacteria.  Prebiotics feed healthy bacteria while probiotics are new bacteria.  Think of probiotics as "laying new sod" and prebiotics as "fertilizing the lawn".

A healthy gut is important for overall health. Research shows healthy gut bacteria work to enhance immune function, improve digestion and absorption, and can even positively affect your mood.
