Everyone’s heard that probiotics are essential in a healthy diet. In fact, you’ve probably eaten plenty of probiotics without actually realizing it.  Greek yogurt, dark chocolate, green peas, sauerkraut, kombucha, and kefir are all foods containing probiotics, among many others. Probiotics are the good bacteria and yeast that help keep your gut clean. But what else helps these probiotics? They can’t possibly be doing this all on their own...

 

Enter prebiotics: a relatively new concept, first identified in the mid 1990's. Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for probiotics, causing the good bacteria to flourish. Hello Secret Soulmates, and thank you!

One of the best natural sources of prebiotics is Baobab. Baobab fruit powder is 28% prebiotic fiber by weight, which is very highly concentrated compared to other plant foods. Among its other powerful health benefits, such as skin and immune system support, Baobab plays a critical role in feeding your own microbiome of probiotics.

There are plenty of delicious meals that can be prepared using both probiotic and prebiotic foods. Baobab makes it much easier for anyone with a busy, active  lifestyle to get their daily dose of gut-boosting prebiotics. And of course, you as a "match maker" help to bring a beautiful symbiotic flourishing relationship together!
