Here’s What People Don’t Understand About Probiotics

Probiotics are a huge – and growing – industry. Zion Market Research had it pegged at more than $40 billion in 2019, and they expect it to grow beyond $70 billion by 2026.

It’s not hard to see why they are getting increasingly popular. Probiotics are made up of the “good” bacteria that live in your intestines, and they play a key role in digestion. According to some research, they can also send signals to your immune system and help regulate inflammation.

Take another look at the image at the top of this page. Those wormy looking things are actually Lactobacillus acidophilus, one of the most common types of probiotics.

And it may not look like it, but those little critters have at least one important thing in common with you: they need to be fed in order to perform at maximum strength.

That’s why you need PREbiotics as well as PRObiotics

Probiotics actually don’t work without prebiotics. Prebiotics can deliver nutrients that strengthen beneficial bacteria and other microorganisms in your gut. Think of it like giving existing bacteria the nutrients they already like.

Consuming a balanced amount of both prebiotics and probiotics will go a long way towards promoting balance in your microbiome, the micro-ecosystem formed by the trillions of critters that line your gut. Think of probiotics like adding to the population of healthy microbes in your gut, and think of prebiotics like giving those probiotics the food they need to optimize performance.

You can get prebiotics from some foods that naturally contain them. They contain certain types of fiber found in vegetables, fruits and legumes. Although you wouldn’t be able to digest those fibers on your own, your good gut bacteria will feast on them.

Here are a few foods that are high in prebiotic fiber:

  • oats
  • broccoli
  • legumes
  • beans
  • peas
  • bananas
  • berries
  • onions
  • asparagus

How to get both probiotics and prebiotics

One of the best things you can do to support gut health is to eat a balanced diet with plenty of prebiotics and probiotics. Try to include some fiber-rich vegetables with every meal, and don’t forget about some of the all-natural supplements from Zeal:

SBO Probiotics and Prebiotics

By now you should appreciate the importance of both probiotics and prebiotics. This product is a masterful blend between the two. It is a simple, all natural way to help you with immune support, gut health, and digestion.*

You should also know that the probiotics come from strains that occur naturally in the soil. They are called soil-based organisms (SBOs) and they provide you with pure, fresh, unadulterated ingredients you can trust. From ancient peat, organic spirulina, to organic flax sprout, you're getting the absolute freshest SBO probiotics available.

Each time you swallow these pills, you provide your body with each of the following:

  • 60 billion colony forming units of raw organic prebiotic fibers and probiotics and prebiotics to support immunity, gut health, and digestive health. 
  • Friendly bacteria strains, such as Lactobacillus, that can help break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off "unfriendly" organisms that might cause diarrhea, IBS, leaky gut, and other unwanted gut health issues.*
  • A proprietary Prebiotic Organic Sprouted Fiber and Mineral Blend that is grown in small batches to ensure that you're always getting the freshest, most natural ingredients.

Enhanced Probiotic Gummies

It's almost unfair how good these gummies are

Both kids and adults like eating these for their great taste, and they are made from all-natural ingredients everyone will love. The raw cane sugar and plant-based pectin is largely responsible for their deliciousness, and you’re getting it without any high-fructose corn syrup or gelatin that you might find in other vitamin gummies.

But there is a lot more to these gummies than their delicious taste. They are packed with probiotics and prebiotics along with organic berry antioxidants to support immunity, intestinal health and a healthy digestive tract.*
