The Gut Health Puzzle

Chances are, you already know how important a healthy gut microbiome is to your overall health and wellness. It can have an impact on nearly every other part of your body, including your brain, skin, and even your immune system. 

A quick Google search will give you list after list of things you can do to improve your gut health, and almost all of them will talk about the importance of probiotics. While probiotics are an essential part of keeping your gut healthy, it’s often overlooked that they are only one piece of the puzzle. 

So what are the other pieces of the puzzle? Let’s take a look. 

Basically, prebiotics are lunch for probiotics. In fact, they are probiotics’ favorite food. Prebiotics are compounds that promote the growth of probiotic colonies and support their function in the gut. To put it simply, prebiotics are key to keeping probiotics strong and healthy. 

These are the puzzle pieces you are probably most familiar with. Probiotics seed your gut microbiome with friendly bacteria. Ultimately, the goal of probiotics is to improve the balance of bacteria in your gut microbiome so the harmful bacteria don’t start to outnumber the friendly ones. 

Digestive enzymes
This piece of the gut health puzzle is all about helping your body break down food and soak up more nutrients. Digestive enzymes break food down into absorbable forms that your body can recognize and utilize. In other words, digestive enzymes improve digestion and help you absorb more nutrients from the food you eat. 

In order to absorb these wonderful nutrients we actually need to consume them in the first place, right? So, highly nutritious superfoods are part of this equation as well. We are talking about foods like our organic Wild Microalgae® that are rich in a variety of minerals, vitamins amino acids, and more.

Now that you know more about all four pieces of the gut health puzzle, you are probably wondering how to make sure your body is getting all four pieces. One option is food. There are plenty of foods out there that include prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes. In fact, some of the foods you already love probably include one of the three. For example, bananas are a great source of prebiotics and pineapple is known to be packed with digestive enzymes.
