Go With Your Gut
by: Martina M. Cartwright, PhD, RD
Adding prebiotic and probiotic foods to your diet boosts beneficial bacteria and can improve overall health.
If your gut is in a rut, chances are your health is out of sorts too.
The gut, also known as the gastrointestinal (or GI) tract, hosts trillions of bacteria that can have profound effects on digestive health and overall wellness, which is why it’s a good idea to consume prebiotics and probiotics—dietary dynamos that work in concert to populate the gut with “microflora” that keep mind and body healthy.
