Are you looking for an easy way to add prebiotic fibers to your
diet? If so, then Virtue Prebiotic Mixes are for you. Just add one
level tablespoon to your milk, almond milk, or yogurt, and you get 5
full grams of prebiotic fiber from inulin sourced from chicory root.
Wheat Belly program recommends first supplementing with a high-potency
probiotic (e.g., 30-50 billion CFUs per day) for 3-5 days prior to
supplementing with prebiotic fiber sources. Because prebiotic fibers can
sometimes provoke gas and bloating, we start with only one serving per
day for the first week, build up to one serving twice per day after
that. The maximum daily intake should never exceed two servings twice
The Difference Between Probiotics and Prebiotics
prebiotic is a type of fiber that supports the growth of “good
bacteria” in the digestive system. In a food ingredient it is
typically listed as inulin, or perhaps chicory root fiber. It can help
promote good digestion which is beneficial for immunity, absorption of
minerals, regularity and overall bowel health.
Probiotics are live bacteria found in yogurt and many dairy products as well as in the form of supplement pills. They are considered “good bacteria” and promote overall bowel health and support immune function. Many people beginning the Wheat Belly lifestyle will take a course of probiotics for 30-days or so to help restore a healthy balance of gut bacteria.
