You are what eats what you eat…

The modern diet can wreak havoc with your digestion. Having a healthy population of good bacteria in your gut helps you digest food, and bolsters your immune system.

A diet high in processed foods and sugar can create an imbalance, leading to bloating, IBS and even much more severe health problems down the road.

A probiotic is a live food containing good bacteria. For most people, the easiest option will be a live, full fat (no added sugar) yoghurt. If for any reason you don’t/can’t eat dairy, live sauerkraut/kimchee or miso can be an alternative, or you can purchase probiotic tablets online.

Prebiotics are foods which feed the good bacteria in your stomach. The best sources are Chicory Root, Jerusalem Artichoke, Dandelion Greens, Garlic, Leek, Onion, Asparagus and Banana.

Why not try a good bacteria friendly breakfast of full fat live yoghurt, with a sliced fruit and berries?
