The Beneficial Probiotics for Leaky Gut: How Probiotics would help restore your gut (Paperback)
The digestive tract relies on beneficial bacteria and friendly microorganisms to process food. And to do this, the digestive tracts flora should be balanced. Certain types of foods we eat contain compounds that promote a balanced stomach flora. These compounds include probiotics, inulin, and fructooligosaccharides (FOS).Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live in the large intestines. These gut-friendly bacteria are called probiotic because they support our health in some ways. They improve the condition of the intestinal tract, promote better digestion and prevent intestinal inflammation.On the other hand, inulin and fructooligosaccharides belong to fructans. Fructans are long chains of fructose units obtained from plants. The difference between inulin and FOS is that the former is long-chain fructans while the latter is short-chain fructans. Probiotics and fructans are part of a healthy diet. They are derived from whole foods, fruits, and fermen.
