Teeccino delivers prebiotics in every cup

Every cup of Teeccino is naturally prebiotic due to its inulin that naturally extracts from chicory and dandelion roots during brewing or steeping. Prebiotics are nutrients that help support good digestive health by nourishing probiotics, the microorganisms that live in your digestive tract and positively affect your health in many ways.

Inulin is a prebiotic soluble fiber found in many common foods such as wheat, garlic, artichokes, sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes) and raisins, albeit in small quantities. However, chicory and dandelion – two of Teeccino’s main ingredients – contain much higher amounts of inulin than any of these foods.

Our modern diet provides us with around 2 – 3 grams of inulin a day, but our ancestors ate 15-20 grams daily because they ate more roots and tubers where inulin concentration is greatest. The good news for Teeccino drinkers is that a substantial amount of inulin from chicory (between 390-650 mg in each cup depending on brew method) is naturally extracted with hot water during brewing.

Inulin supports beneficial digestive flora

It turns out that we are hosts to trillions of microorganisms, also called “microbiota”, that play an essential role in our optimal health. Over 1,000 species inhabit our guts. Studies show that a strong and diverse population of probiotics is necessary for good digestive health. In order to have a healthy microbiome, you need to feed your probiotics with prebiotics. Inulin is one of their favorite foods!

Inulin is now a popular food additive that is found in all kinds of foods like nutrition bars, ice cream, yogurt and bread as well as nutritional supplements. In yogurt, inulin supports the effectiveness of the probiotics such as the bifidobacteria that make yogurt so healthy for us. Rather than being commercially extracted, Teeccino’s inulin naturally extracts into your cup straight from the chicory and dandelion roots during brewing.

The benefits of a diverse microbiome

Beneficial microflora increase the efficiency of digestion while also increasing the production of B vitamins and absorption of minerals. They also affect various immune functions that further promote good health. They may even affect important health concerns as such as heart health, mood, and your weight. They protect the integrity of our intestinal tract to prevent leaky guts and are involved in many other bodily functions. Science is discovering daily more ways our microbiome impacts our health and how important it is to keep a balanced and diverse group of species intact and flourishing in our microbiome.

Harmful bacteria have been shown to decrease in population after an increased inulin intake. By supporting the healthy digestive microbiota to become dominant, inulin creates a climate in the colon that prevents harmful bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella, from growing.

Supplementing with a probiotic that contains live lactobacillus and bifidobacteria while consuming a prebiotic like inulin creates a potent duo called a “symbiotic” that helps improve your digestion and your health. However, you can’t ingest the majority of the 1,000 species of microbiota in a supplement form. This makes it so important to nourish your microbiota with prebiotics!
