Our prebiotic blend is made using nothing but plant-based whole foods, just as mother nature intended.
Flourish has created a blend of nine natural plant-based ingredients that support the gut by feeding the good microbiome. This is key to improving gut health and digestion.
“All disease begins in the gut.”
– Hippocrates, approx. 2500 years ago
Clearly, Hippocrates was onto something, as everyday more research is showing just how important and influential to our body the gut really is.
Like our fingerprints, our gut microbiome is unique to each of us. It’s packed full of over 1500 different species of probiotics, the bacteria that lives and thrives in our gut to keep the body balanced and healthy.
Because our gut microbiome is unique to each of us, the levels of each probiotic species and the number of total probiotic species housed within it will vary depending on the person.
Maintaining a healthy balance of probiotics in your gut comes down to feeding the existing probiotics – and not simply topping them up.
Most probiotic supplements only contain 10-15 different species of probiotics. When you take these probiotics, the only bacteria topped up in the gut will be the specific species that are found in the supplement – which means that over 1000 other species will be left ignored and unfed.
Probiotics eat prebiotics. In order to feed all of the probiotic species in your gut (and not just 10-15 of them), you need to eat prebiotics.
Because the body will always find equilibrium and balance, prebiotics will only feed the probiotics in your gut that need topping up.
With a whole food, plant-based prebiotic supplement like our Prebiotic Blend, your unique microbiome can decide for itself which probiotics to feed in order to better balance out the bacteria in your gut.
Because the healthier your gut microbiome, the healthier you are.
Whole food, plant-based & pure
Like prebiotics, resistant starch is another type of food for probiotics and is named for its resistance to being absorbed higher up in the intestinal tract.
Instead, it bypasses the upper region in favour of the lower part of the intestinal tract – where the probiotics in your gut microbiome spend their time.
Inulin fibre, found naturally in chicory root, is one form of prebiotic that probiotics love to eat. We use chicory root as the key ingredient in our Prebiotic Blend to ensure that the bacteria in our gut microbiome is getting the food it needs to thrive.
Green bananas are another form of resistant starch that the probiotics in your gut microbiome love to eat. That’s why it’s another key ingredient in our gut-loving blend.
Common digestive health issues:
Can also help with:
Start slowly with half a teaspoon for the first 2-3 weeks and then build up to a whole teaspoon.
For people with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, half a teaspoon may be all that you can tolerate. It can take 2-3 weeks to start seeing results (less bloating, solid stool, regular easy bowel movements, less pain after eating, etc).
If after eating a meal you experience flatulence, pain and gas, take a teaspoon of our Prebiotic Blend with half a teaspoon of our Turmeric Blend. After 20 minutes, the discomfort should ease significantly.
