It’s no secret that the food we eat greatly impacts all aspects of our physical and mental health. It’s especially important to include several sources of prebiotic-rich foods throughout the day for optimal results. Prebiotic foods are like fuel for good bacteria. They contain certain fibrous carbohydrates that nourish the good bacteria to help them to grow. This process helps build a healthy microbiome.

TikToker and gut health dietitian @olivia.ashton.nutrition shared 5 sources of healthy prebiotics that will help aid in digestion.

You can even pair them with other probiotic foods such as miso, coconut water kefir, dairy-free yogurts, raw cacao, kombucha, kimchi, and sauerkraut for even better results!
