Promote Gut-Health with this amazing Pre-Biotic
Prebiotics are not any type of bacteria like probiotics. Prebiotics are the food nutrients that feed the good bacteria in our body. Keeping healthy gut bacteria in balance is the key to a healthy immune system.
A healthy gut is the foundation for a healthy metabolism in which toxins are discarded and good food is properly digested providing minerals, vitamins and other vital nutrients to the body. Adequate bacterial activity in a healthy gut helps absorb the nutrients at the same time that protects the body from harmful overgrowth of bad bacteria including those which cause disease such as Pylori, Salmonella, Clostridium, and others. Even yeasts such as Candida are fine in small amounts; they only become problematic when their numbers increase uncontrollably in an unhealthy gut environment.
Recent studies have shown that Agave Inulin Powder helps feed the good bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus, among others. Not only does it promote restoration of good bacteria but creates a bulk of “puffed” natural fibre that helps promote bowel movement and helps with constipation.
Nutritionally, it is considered a form of soluble fiber and is categorized as a prebiotic.
The agave plant is grown for a period of 4 to 8 years until it becomes mature. At the time of the harvest, the "Jimador" cuts-off the leaves of the Agave, leaving only the core or "pina". The core is crushed to obtain the sap of the plant which is a sweet juice. This juice, which is rich in inulin, is filtered and then spray-dried to produce a fine white powder.
