Why We Need Probiotics AND Prebiotics

Written By Native Sun Nutrition & Functional Medicine on April 30, 2021

ProbioticsYour microbiome establishes itself at birth, dominated by a strain called bifidobacteria. The introduction of solid food gradually transforms it into an adult gut characterized by a diverse blend of microorganisms. However, as we age along with lifestyle choices, the diversity decreases, often translating into GI dysbiosis. GI dysbiosis can lead to anxiety, depression, autoimmune disease and more.

To protect yourself from GI dysbiosis, one of the best things you can do is supplement with probiotics and prebiotics. Native Sun Nutrition in Las Vegas carries the best of both and other gut-support supplements so you can keep a healthy, diverse blend of probiotics in your gut.

Why We Need Probiotics

A simple diet and lifestyle adjustment aren’t enough. The typical American diet leads to an alkaline gut, allowing bad bacteria to thrive. This is made worse when we take antibiotics and other pharmaceutical products, suffer from stress, lack of sleep, and a sedentary lifestyle. A steady supply of probiotics is a fast and effective way to promote a healthy gut microbiome.

Why We Need Prebiotics

Probiotics alone aren’t enough. They need prebiotic support. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that beneficial bacteria eat. They strengthen and significantly increase the good bacteria, and help suppress the bad bacteria, promoting an optimal environment for good digestive health.
