Belly Bugs and Prebiotics

 Belly Bugs and Prebiotics
Belly Bugs in the Gut

Most probiotic supplements are a complete waste of time and money and carry no benefit.  That’s why it’s important to choose a probiotic supplement that uses patented Micro-encapsulation Technology to protect each fragile probiotic cell as it’s delivered to your gut. In addition to consuming more probiotics, you’ll also want to be sure to consume more PRE-biotics on a daily basis to feed the healthy bacteria in your gut.

What are prebiotics?

As alluded above, prebiotics are a specific type of non-digestible fiber that stimulates the growth of the healthy probiotic bacteria in your gut.  By ensuring you are consuming ample probiotics and prebiotics daily, you can rebalance your gut bacteria and KEEP it balanced by feeding those healthy scavengers in your gastrointestinal tract that do so much for your health.

The most common prebiotic found in nature is a compound called inulin, and it’s found in modest amounts in these 8 foods:

Artichokes
Onions
Leeks
Garlic
Banana
Barley
Chicory Root

Still, getting enough prebiotics through the above foods alone can be difficult and would require you to consume large amounts of these foods daily.  For example, you’d have to consume 1.3 lbs of bananas or quarter pound of cooked onions daily to get 6g of prebiotic inulin.  The raw versions of the above foods contain slightly more inulin per ounce, but probably like you, we’re not people who eat raw onion or chicory root on a daily basis (We’ll share a nifty salsa recipe that you can enjoy from time to time in a minute that actually contains a good amount of these raw foods and a healthy dose of prebiotic fiber).

That said, because inulin is naturally sweet, coupled with its powerful prebiotic properties, it also makes a great addition to healthy food products.

What is “Gut Bacteria”

What is “Gut Bacteria”

What is gut bacteria

Within your gut reside roughly 100 trillion living Gut bacteria and maintaining the ideal ratio of “good bacteria” (known as probiotics) to “bad bacteria” is now gaining recognition as perhaps the single most important step you can take to protect your health and further along your fat loss goals.

With specific regard to fatloss, while the ideal healthy ratio of “good” to “bad” bacteria in your gut is 9 to 1, virtually every study performed on the obese population analyzing gut bacteria found higher instances of “bad” bacteria and lower levels of “good” bacteria within these individuals.  That’s a far cry from the ideal 9 to 1 ratio and you can bet it’s definitely a big reason why these folks are overweight and struggling to lose their stubborn belly flab.

That said, correcting this imbalance can have an immediate waist-slimming effect as a recent double-blind study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that test subjects who took active measures to re-balance their gut bacteria ratio were able to reduce their abdominal fat by nearly 5 percent, while the “control” group experienced no positive changes in body fat levels at all.

So what exactly CAN you do to re-balance your gut bacteria ratio and begin experiencing these belly-flattening benefits for yourself?

Below is just one method starting with today’s belly-flattening tip:
Overeat fermented foods, such as:

• Lassi (an Indian yogurt drink, traditionally served before dinner)
• Various pickled fermentation’s of cabbage sauerkraut, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash, and carrots
• Kimchi (a Korean fermented vegetable dish) 
• Tempeh
• Fermented raw milk such as kefir
• Plain, unsweetened yogurt

All of these foods are rich in “good” bacteria, and their consumption will help to re-balance your overall gut bacteria ratio.  Just make sure to steer clear of processed yogurts that are loaded with sugars and/or artificial sweeteners which have been shown to actually damage your gut bacteria ratio instead of help it.

That being said, the biggest downfall with fermented foods is that many people do not particularly enjoy their taste, and the amount you’d have to eat in order to get enough healthy bacteria to really make a difference is a bit impractical for the average person to consume.

For example, in order to get enough good bacteria into your intestine from yogurt, you would need to force down 10 to 30 servings of plain, unsweetened yogurt every single day of your life. What’s more, yogurt is lacking in several key strains of good bacteria, so even 10 to 30 servings wouldn’t be enough, However any added good bacteria in your diet is better than none at all.
