Here's the scoop: PRE-biotics, not PRO-biotics, are the be-all and end-all of gut health. Prebiotics are the nutrients that make your probiotics thrive. Keeping the microbiome (your community of probiotics) healthy and diverse depends on eating prebiotics. I've been fascinated by prebiotics ever since I learned from our customers that drinking Teeccino was improving their digestive health. I went searching for the answer and discovered that inulin, the prebiotic soluble fiber in chicory root, was known to improve regularity.
That was back in the ‘90s. Now science has learned so much more about prebiotics and their essential role in the health of the microbiome ~ well, I just had to create some Teeccino blends that would bring even more prebiotic benefits to your cup. Many popular diets prohibit foods rich in prebiotics like grains and beans, which can result in digestive health problems if you restrict these foods for too long. If your probiotics aren’t well fed, they’ll chow down on your gut lining. Not good for you at all!
Taking probiotics to improve your digestion? 90% of the critters that live in your gut aren't available in a nutritional supplement because they’re anaerobic – they can’t live in the presence of oxygen. Nevertheless, you can nourish the thousands of species of probiotics in your gut by consuming prebiotics.Teeccino has always provided inulin, a prebiotic from chicory root that naturally extracts during brewing. Now with Prebiotic SuperBoost™, a concentrated, plant-based blend of 2 prebiotics, vegan GOS, gluco-oligosaccharide. and organic XOS, xylo-oligosaccahride, your cup of Teeccino can have an even greater beneficial impact on your health.
