PreBiotics

are non-digestible fibers that feed the bacteria living in your gut. Prebiotics have a beneficial affect for the host by stimulating the growth or the activity of one or multiple bacteria in the colon.

However, most prebiotics on the market can feed both harmful and beneficial gut bacteria. As you can see, this is not a good option if you already have an imbalance of the good and bad guys, which is called dysbiosis. You don’t want more of the bad guys; you want more of the good guys.

Fibers are prebiotics BUT Only if they feed the beneficial microbes to provide a health benefit

When you feed the bad bacteria, you can experience or even exacerbate digestive issues like gas, constipation, diarrhea, and / or cramping.

The population of the beneficial bacteria can be easily diminished by

  • Antibiotics
  • Stress
  • Diet
  • Glyphosate
  • and other environmental toxins that enter our body through the water we drink, the air we breath.

You have two very good options to increase your intake of Prebiotics

Either through your diet or by taking a Prebiotic

Lets  look at foods first that contain prebiotics 

Oligosaccharides from Kiwis, Bananas, Artichoke, Lentils, tofu, Cashews, Pistachios, Beans, Split peas, Dairy like milk, Yogurt.

Inulin from Garlic, Leek and Oats, Dandelion Greens, Jerusalem artichoke, Bananas,

Beta-glucans from Mushrooms, Cereals

Pectins from Pears, Apples, Oranges, Citrus peels, Plums, Apricots, Peach, Carrots

Resistant Starches from Bananas, Plantains, Legumes, Oats, Beans,  Cooked and cooled Rice, Potatoes, Sweet potatoes, Corn

It is important to know that an Antibiotic treatment lowers the number of Bifidobacteria in the gut

A study done in 3-6 year old who took antibiotics were given different fruits and vegetables, Almonds and soluble corn fiber. The result showed that the number of Bifidobacteria was stable. The immune system is still developing in a 3 year old and it is very important to know that the Bifidobacteria can be supported so they can help in the immune respond while taking an antibiotic.

 The Bifidobacteria are important for anti-inflammatory processes, short-chain-fatty acid production.

What if you could count on a prebiotic that feeds

ONLY

the good guys?

Microbiome Labs has developed a prebiotic that only feeds beneficial bacteria. Those keystone bacteria are Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and Bifidobacteria

Akkermansia Muciniphila

plays an important role in metabolism and has been shown to promote fat loss. Low levels of A. muciniphila have been associated with obesity, diabetes, liver disease, cardiometabolic diseases, and low-grade inflammation.**

Faecalibacterium Prausnitzii

can increase the production of butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that can relieve intestinal inflammation. Low levels of F. prausnitzii have been associated with irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, and chronic constipation.**

Bifidobacteria

can also increase butyrate production and promote lean body mass. Low levels of Bifidobacteria have been associated with obesity, diabetes, celiac disease, allergic asthma, dermatitis, IBD, chronic fatigue syndrome, and psoriasis.**

Increasing populations of these protective bacteria is an integral part of reinforcing a healthy gut microbiome. Studies have shown that a more diverse gut microbiome is associated with a stronger immune system and a decreased risk for chronic illness.**

Introducing:

MegaPre Capsules and Powder

Mega Prebiotic is a cutting-edge Precision Prebiotic™ supplement made up of

  • clinically-tested, non-digestible
  • Oligosaccharides that can increase microbial diversity and selectively feed beneficial keystone bacteria like Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Bifidobacteria.

The oligosaccharides are derived from

  • non-GMO green and gold kiwi fruit,
  • non-GMO corn cob, and
  • rBST-free cow’s milk  (rBST: recombinant Bovine Somatotrophin is a growth hormone).

The findings of these oligosaccharide studies are quite impressive and have shown that Akkermansia muciniphila population increases by 8,000% in 5 weeks, F. prausnitzii by 100% in 4 weeks, Bifido by 10% in 6 weeks.

Increasing populations of these protective bacteria is an integral part of reinforcing a healthy gut microbiome. Studies have shown that a more diverse gut microbiome is associated with a stronger immune system and a decreased risk for chronic illness.

 Prebiotic, Megaprebiotic

MegaPreBiotic™ REINFORCES the beneficial microbial changes created by MegaSporeBiotic™ to promote a strong and diverse microbiome.**
