Probiotics and Prebiotics? Let’s unravel the mystery of a happy and healthy gut!
Imagine that probiotics are tiny microorganisms responsible for maintaining order in our intestines. They are the good bacteria that protect and balance the colon, keeping the bad bacteria at bay. And to feed them, we have prebiotics, their favorite food!
Together, these two form an unstoppable duo to keep your digestive system in top shape during pregnancy. And the best part? Probiotics can also strengthen your immune system, relieve stomach discomfort, and even protect you from eczema.
Before rushing to buy supplements, take a look at the natural options! Yogurt with probiotics, kefir, dark chocolate, and pickled vegetables can be your new best friends! And for prebiotics, bananas, asparagus, oats, and many other goodies are on the list.
There are still ongoing studies to discover all the benefits they can offer for your baby, but one thing is certain: they help keep your gut bacteria happy! So don’t be afraid to try them out, and consult your doctor to find the best option for you.
Your digestive system and your baby will thank you. Enjoy these delicious and healthy foods!
