Probiotic & Prebiotic Awareness on the Rise

The Probiota Americas Conference in Chicago this past month produced exciting new information on probiotics and consumers awareness of their benefits. Some hopeful information came from a recent survey by AIDP which measured consumers usage of prebiotics and probiotics.

Probiotics & Prebiotics in our MicrobiomeWhat we learned is that the word is getting out.  In an article by Hank Schultz, he talked about the survey results. “In a poll of 400 dietary supplement users, it was revealed that more than 38% would be very likely or somewhat likely to try a prebiotic with strong digestive and immune health benefits. The survey also showed that 44% of these consumers had tried a probiotic supplement. Further results showed that more than 60% of respondents would be interested in buying a product that contained both a prebiotic and a probiotic.” This reflects a better understanding of the role these supplements have in digestive and immune wellness. 

Furthermore consumers would be more likely to try a product that was backed by research and human clinical trials. The vast majority of solid probiotic research has occurred in just the past 3 years with the conclusion of the largest consortium of scientific research on the human gut ecology called Human Microbiome Project. For the latest findings and research in relation to probiotics check our Microbiome Series with Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan.

What is the Difference Between a Probiotic and Prebiotic?

We know that feeding the existing bacteria is just as important as introducing new bacteria in the gut. Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of our beneficial gut microbiota. Probiotics increase the diversity of our bacteria and increase its numbers. Our clients have reported the most improved results when taking both a prebiotic and probiotic together for a two-three month period.

Fight Aging with These Fabulous Prebiotic & Probiotic Foods

fruits-155616_1280If you’re looking for the latest anti-aging secret, you should know the fountain of youth isn’t in a bottle or a surgeon’s scalpel. The produce aisle of your local supermarket contains the best anti-aging remedies. The best foods for anti-aging include essential fatty acids, antioxidants, plant compounds, and probiotic properties that can help you combat the ravages of time naturally.

Salmon: This popular fish contains essential fatty acids such as Omega 3s and minerals such as iron, calcium, and phosphorous. Salmon also contains vitamins D and E, both of which neutralize free radicals within your body.

Essential fatty acids play a role in the permeability of your cell membranes. Healthy cell membranes allow nutrients to enter and facilitate the release of toxins. This effect reduces inflammation throughout your body.

Dark fruits and veggies: These tasty treats pack a full dose of vitamin C in addition to powerful phytonutrients that prevent aging-related vision loss. Dark-colored fruits and veggies also contain compounds that decrease your risk of retinal damage, sparing your eyesight.

Prebiotic foods

These foods promote the growth and proliferation of the beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. They combat the effects of aging by promoting the absorption of vitamins and minerals essential to sound health.

Prebiotic foods such as whole grains, onions, bananas, and garlic provide the fuel for your body to digest the foods you eat by feeding the “good bacteria” or gut flora. The indigestible fiber from these foods travels to the large intestine, where it is broken down by the gut flora and provides the “fuel” necessary for the gut flora to proliferate.

Probiotic foods

Kimchi, kefir, olives, tempeh, miso, and sauerkraut work with prebiotic compounds to maintain the balance of beneficial bacteria in your gut. A growing body of research has demonstrated a correlation between a healthy gut microbiome and lower rates of systemic inflammation, autoimmune conditions, and lower risk of obesity and weight gain.

Probiotic foods such as yogurt and kefir also help your body fight the effects of aging by increasing the number of helpful bacteria in your gut. These healthy bacteria enhance the absorption of vitamins and minerals in all the foods you eat.

You can combat the effects of aging by eating a wide variety of fresh foods, including fruits and vegetables that are rich in color and that provide powerful antioxidants to fight disease and inflammation, and fatty fish such as salmon to provide Omega 3 essential fatty acids that help your skin maintain its smoothness and protect your heart.

Foods rich in prebiotic and probiotic properties work to nourish your gut flora, allowing for the full absorption of the nutrients and supplements vital to fighting the effects of aging.

No one relishes the thought of aging, but you don’t need to reach for the latest anti-aging cream or the surgeon’s scalpel. The latest anti-aging tools are as close as your local produce section.

Tips on Eating Foods That are Good for Your Gut

Prebiotic and Probiotic Good for your GutIf you suffer from gut problems, you probably want a solution for healing fast. Instead of turning to medication right away, consider improving your diet. Eating the right foods is an important part of keeping gut issues away and fixing them, if you’re already suffering. In combination with prebiotics (complex carbohydrate and fiber-rich foods) and probiotics (friendly gut bacteria), a healthy diet can mean all the difference in good gut health.

Here are a few tips on eating foods that are Good for your Gut:

Choose Prebiotic and Probiotic-Rich Foods

Certain foods contain natural prebiotics and probiotics that help keep a healthy balance between good and bad bacteria in the gut. When you consume these foods on a regular basis, you’re constantly introducing friendly microbes into the intestines that will starve off bad microorganisms and keep them from taking over. Foods that are rich in natural prebiotics and probiotics include garlic, leeks, non-dairy yogurt, artichokes, dark chocolate, kim chee, kombucha, kefir, and sauerkraut.

Opt for a Food with Prebiotics and Probiotics for Breakfast

To get in the habit of eating lots of prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods for good gut health, make sure you start the day with these beneficial substances. Beginning your morning with a banana, or a smoothie with banana in it, gives your gut the healthy fiber it needs to feed friendly bacteria and help them proliferate. This is just one example of a breakfast with ingredients for good gut health.

Opting for a non-dairy yogurt—one without a lot of sugar that can feed bad bacteria—also allows good microbes in the gut to start multiplying after a night without food.

Choose More Prebiotics and Probiotics for Lunch

By mid-day, your body is ready for even more prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods. Remember, the good bacteria in our gut does not live forever. These friendly microbes are always doing their good work and then dying off, so it’s important that you keep renewing them and feeding new growth in the right way.

Lunchtime meals that are abundant in prebiotics and probiotics include green smoothies with coconut kefir and spirulina, whole grain bowls with fermented veggies, and kombucha with a fresh veggie salad.

Make Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Your New Best Friend

With your plant-based dinner, and with every meal, we suggest you take a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar to improve digestion. Apple cider vinegar eases bloating and inflammation, and it alkalizes the pH levels in your body. Wondering what that stringy sediment is at the bottom of the vinegar bottle? It’s the “mother tincture,” and it’s what makes apple cider vinegar so powerful as a probiotic.

The benefits of eating a prebiotic and probiotic-rich diet should outweigh any temptation to turn toward sugary comfort foods when your digestive system is feeling off. In many cases of IBS, and other digestive problems, it’s the sugar-rich foods that feed the bad bacteria and cause poor gut conditions in the first place.

In addition to adding the foods we’ve mentioned to your diet, consider taking a daily prebiotic or probiotic, such as Perfect Pass Prebiotic and Perfect Pass Probiotic, to improve the health of your intestinal tract.

Introducing: Good Gut Solution

We Have A New Name – Good Gut Solution

& you may have noticed the new logo up top.

Let me explain….
When Dr. Pam launched crohns.net 16 years ago, in 1998, her intention was to focus on patients with Crohn’s Disease. You may ask why Crohns Disease?  Though she had been working in natural medicine for many years, she was only seeing patients who drove to and walked into the medical clinic.  She desired to help more people, but wasn’t sure how to make this happen.

Then she met Jordan Rubin. It was during their luncheon together that she learned of his miraculous story and recovery, when doctors told him his crohns disease was incurable, and essentially, that he was going to die.  As we all know he didn’t die, he recovered fully and overcame his diagnosis.

Dr. Pam was so inspired that she launched this website to help Crohns patients all over the globe. How has this been going? Well, she’s done so with immense success, and together with the help of the rest of the team – we’ve helped thousands with Crohns achieve happiness, prolonged remission and, as as many would say, a new life. Allow me to share just two quick testimonials:

“I would like to share my 13 yr. old daughter’s experience….how probiotics saved her from, at the very least, a surgeons knife.” – Joe and Renee G

“Thank you so much for helping to turn my condition around. I am so happy I did not have to take steroids instead” – Linda L

But sometimes customers do not just have Crohns, some have Ulcerative Colitis, some IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and others, a recurring stomach ache that needed natural medicine. Others have SIBO, dysbiosis or leaky gut, or maybe a combination of symptoms and diagnoses. Then there were those with other health issues like skin problems, low energy, fatigue, inflammation, psoriasis, allergies, asthma, the list goes on, and on, and on. Dr. Pam, and the rest of the team here, have helped these people in over 78 countries.

Why Good Gut Solution?

Scientists know that the gut holds over 70% of our immune system. (1) Even our happiness is located in our gut as up to 95% of the bodies’ supply of serotonin comes from gut bacteria. (2)

So going forward, we’ve embarked on a new vision, with a new company name.

“Your digestive system influences all other systems in the body;  a healthy gut creates a healthy body. That’s the Solution.”   Dr. Pamela Nathan DHM L.Ac

And along with the new vision, we will be adding heaps more products in 2014. What remains the same is …..everything else. Same low pricing, same responsive website, same speedy shipping, epic customer service, and Dr. Pam with her team, guiding the vision of empowering people world-wide to realize their full-potential through optimal health, education and natural medicine.

I’ve learned heaps in just my short time here. You may be wondering,  as we’re often asked, “Where can I read some of these articles to stay up-to-date on the latest advances? Here, I’ll tell you. For all articles prior to 2013:
