Just as a garden needs fertilizer to grow when it’s become depleted, our gut microbiome needs fuel to grow when it has been wiped out by antibiotics, or other upsets that may alter the microbiome.
Why do we need prebiotics?
The gut microbiome is the collection of microbes in the gastrointestinal tract, many of which benefit every part of us, including our digestive, immune and mental health. While antibiotics are a necessary part of modern medicine, their bacteria-fighting properties do not discriminate between good and bad, meaning that both the helpful and harmful bacteria get wiped out. Once an antibiotic regimen is finished, our gut needs help to replenish the good bacteria and restore balance to our bodies.
One of the best ways to increase the good bacteria in your gut is with prebiotics. These non-digestible, fermentable dietary fibers act like fertilizer for the microbiome. The Ohtaka Superfood Blend in GI Recovery includes 50 superfoods, including fruit and vegetable powders, fermented from natural plant material and is designed to do the most good for your microbiome.
