Probiotics Prebiotics were words I have heard for several years but until a few months ago I had know idea what they were and why they should be part of your daily diet. Before we get in my review I thought I would take this time to talk more about what are prebiotics and probiotics, benefits of using probiotics and why they should be in your daily diet. 

What are Prebiotics?

Prebiotics are plant based fibers that feed the good bacteria in the gut. Think of it like fertilization, the better fertilizer you use results in more healthier bacteria. Found in fruits and vegetables especially in complex carbohydrates like fiber and resistant starch.

Since these carbs are not digestible they pass through the digestive system and become food for bacteria and microbes promoting a healthy colon and gut. According the the Government Dietary Guidelines daily recommend fiber intake is:

  • Dietary fiber: 25 - 38g
  • Prebiotic fiber: 5 -  20g (From the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics)
  • Resistant starch: 20g

List of Prebiotic Foods: Be sure to find out how much prebiotic has making sure you add enough into your diet.

  • Allium vegetables such as garlic, onion, leeks, chives, and scallions are great choices. Add them to food raw for the best source of prebiotics.
  • Apple cider vinegar (organic)
  • Avocado
  • Bananas
  • Dandelion greens are leafy green vegetables that are made up of 25% prebiotic fiber.
  • Jicama (yacon), Jerusalem artichoke, and chicory root all contain inulin, a form of prebiotic fiber.
  • Peas
  • Potato skins
  • Soybeans
  • Whole-grain and sprouted-grain breads
  • Wheat germ, whole wheat berries

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are live strains of bacteria that add to the healthy bacteria in the gut. They are most commonly know for being in yogurt, but are in other fermented foods and supplements. Probiotics help digest food, heal leaky gut, promote healthy gut and fight disease causing cells.

The most common forms of the bacteria you will see are the groups called Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium as well as yeasts such as Saccharomyces boulardii. If your are taking probiotics be sure you are getting in your prebiotics to get the most benefit.

Benefits of adding Probiotics to your Daily Diet

  • Promote a balance healthy bacteria in digestive system  
  • Prevent and treat diarrhea
  • Mood support
  • Reduce allergy sensitivity and eczema
  • Reduce symptoms of certain digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
  • Immune Support
  • Help lose belly fat

Recap

Probiotics are for everyone, but not every probiotic is right for you. Before you start ask yourself these few questions: "Am I eating clean to make taking the probiotic worth it?" "What are you taking them for, mental, gut, health, vaginal support?" "Did I talk to my doctor before starting these?" After answering these questions you will have a clearer direction you are looking at.

Let's be honest if you are not eating clean diet 80-100 precent of the time, probiotics are not going to be very beneficial to you or your body. The saying you are what you eat is so accurate here. If you not giving the body the right amount of foods, the digestive system is going to be filled with bad bacteria, resulting in a probiotic trying to clean up the mess but never being able to create a healthy happy bacteria family! Heal the gut and many things will begin to heal, Happy gut, happy mind!

My Review of Seed Probiotics

It took me going through a few different brands over a years time before finding a brand that just checks all the boxes. Seed Brand Probiotic was the one that changed everything for me. After already being on probiotic throughout the year, fixed my diet by removing the food I was allergic or intolerant to and ate gut friendly foods I was still having stomach bloat. That bloat was telling me something is till unhappy in my gut and going over everything the probiotic was the one thing I could change. 

Thankfully I have some amazing friends that suggested Seed Brand and I decided to just order it! Let me tell you I am so happy that I listened because they are amazing, I have noticed less bloat all and all but defiantly after I eat not so gut friendly foods. My skin has less breakouts and my gut has no discomfort or pain anymore. I have recommend this brand and love hearing the positive feedback from others. This Brand is the real deal and will allow you to stop the probiotic search!

While Seed is healing your gut producing little packaging waste was a big concern to them. With that Seed Probiotic 1st month comes to you in a Refillable Glass Jar with a travel jar and the inserts are biodegradable &  compostable, its so cute. But wait there's more, the shipping box is constructed from ecological paper made from algae that would otherwise damage fragile marine ecosystems. From there after when you receive your refill it comes in a compostable sleeve with the foam inside made from corn allowing it to simply melt away under water. Can we take a moment to recognize just all the love this brand has for the planet and our guts:)

Check out Seed.com for more details about what microbiome and how there probiotics are different then most on the market. I also forgot to tell you that they are shelf stable meaning no need to refrigerate or worry about spoiling! Looking for a discount, Seed doesn't just partner with anyone and you actually have to take a class and become certified lol in a way to be affiliate with them. I am not affiliated with them but my dear friend Shae is and you can find a 15% off your first order code on her site, check it out here! Everyone loves to save money.

Talk to your doctor before starting any kind of supplement and remember, If eating clean isn't your way, that's okay just don't expect to get the full benefits! Do you take probiotics? If so have you seen a difference? Hand with me on social @simplychannon
