The Prebiotic Advantage

usda organicPrebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for probiotics. When probiotics and prebiotics are combined, they interact beneficially – Mayo Clinic

“A large number of human intervention studies have demonstrated that dietary consumption of certain prebiotic-containing food products can result in statistically significant changes in the composition of the gut microbiota that help improve immunity. The “prebiotic effect” has been associated with modulation of biomarkers and activities of the immune system, including a reduction of the concentration of cancer-promoting enzymes and putrefactive (bacterial) metabolites in the gut.” — British Journal of Nutrition

Most Americans get less than 4g of Prebiotics each day.

Higher intakes of Prebiotics are linked to benefits including:

  • Improved energy
  • Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Improved digestion
  • Lower stress response
  • Better hormone balance
  • Maximizes dietary mineral absorption
  • Helps maintain healthy weight
  • Helps support the immune system

Prebiotic fiber average intake according to latest survey:

Under 4g

Minimum Recommended daily intake:

4g – 8g

Recommended daily intake to improve digestive disorders:

15g

The antioxidants found in Aronia may help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. In fact, a scientific study revealed that Aronia was at the top of the list among more than 100 foods that were tested for antioxidant properties.

One study surmised a possible health benefit of Aronia Berries (and other berries containing polyphenols) for certain ailments and inflammation.18 Another health study showed that adding polyphenols in your diet may also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.19 Aronia was found to show anti-inflammatory results in human adult endothelial cells (HAEC). Scientists have also found that several compounds found in Aronia Berries are natural inflammation and disease fighters. The research suggests that Aronia Berries or Aronia Berry extract, may be helpful in fighting the development of abnormal cell growth in the lungs and colon. — American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

According to the Arthritis Foundation Turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory effect has the ability to reduce pain in individuals who are suffering from arthritis.

“The primary biologically active constituent of turmeric is the polyphenol, curcumin, an orange-yellow powder that has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which, in part, may contribute to curcumin’s potential to prevent such conditions as cancer, Alzheimer disease, heart disease, and arthritis, to name a few.” — Nutrition Today

Chestnuts

chestnuts
  • Great for digestion
  • High in antioxidants
  • Low in calories and fat, rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals.
  • High levels of healthy mono-unsaturated oleic acid and palmitoleic acids which are thought to help lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol).
  • Very low glycemic index.

Chestnuts contain copper that has been shown to exhibit antioxidant properties by preventing oxidative damage caused by free radicals in the body (1, 2). Deficiency in copper in the body is linked to an increase in free radicals and oxidative damage in the cells of the body (3).

Chestnuts also contain zinc, an essential antioxidant that helps prevent premature aging due to oxidative damage.

Some of the fatty acids found in chestnuts including oleic acid have demonstrated high efficacy in scavenging free radicals, and inhibiting the un-natural oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol.

The rich fiber content in chestnuts makes them ideal for improving the function of the gastrointestinal system. Studies have shown that soluble and insoluble fibers help increase stool frequency, stool weight, and bulk, all of which are essential for proper bowel movement. — Journal of Advances in Nutrition, Journal of Clinical Toxicology, and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Flaxseeds

flaxseeds
  • Good for blood sugar levels
  • Supports digestion
  • Weight control
  • Great for skin and hair
  • High source of vegan protein

“Flaxseed is emerging as an important functional food ingredient because of its rich contents of α-linolenic acid (ALA, omega-3 fatty acid), lignans, and fiber. Flaxseed oil, fibers and flax lignans have potential health benefits such as in reduction of cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, autoimmune and neurological disorders.

Flax protein helps in the prevention and treatment of heart disease and in supporting the immune system.” — Journal of Food Science and Technology
