Both PREbiotics and PRObiotics are essential for optimal gut health and gut healing.
Prebiotics, are types of dietary fiber that the healthy bacteria in our gut feast on. Humans can NOT digest these types of fiber, but some types of gut bacteria can. Prebiotics allow our healthy gut bacteria to grow and thrive to improve gastrointestinal health and other areas of our health. Prebiotics may help with conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, increase bone density and strength, and improve brain function.
Some of the commonly-known prebiotic foods include onions and mushrooms.
Mushrooms are considered a source of prebiotics because they contain different types of fiber, such as chitin, hemicellulose, mannans, α- and β-glucans, galactans, and xylans.
