WHAT ARE PREBIOTICS?
Prebiotics are plant-based fibers that nourish the good probiotic bacteria that already live in your gut. They are a unique type of fiber that the human body can’t digest, but instead serves as food for the probiotics. The prebiotics work with probiotics as a team to help your gut thrive! This can lead to a happy, healthy gut…which leads to a happy, healthy you!
LISTEN TO YOUR GUT
Prebiotics may be small, but they are important to nourish certain probiotic bacteria. Probiotics naturally exist in your digestive track already. Instead of adding more hungry probiotics to your gut, feed the ones you already have! This may help support gut health and promote overall health by:
Sure, there are natural food sources like green bananas and onions that also contain prebiotics, but usually in small traces. You’d have to eat at least 15 green bananas to get an effective dose of prebiotic!
We made it simple and convenient, saving you from eating bananas all day long. One can of Wonder Drink Prebiotic-packed Kombucha is zesty, fun and functional, with only 10 grams of sugar in each 12 oz. can. Your gut will thank you! Happy gut. Happy life.
PREBIOTIC KOMBUCHA – YOUR GUT’S BEST FRIEND
We wanted to make a kombucha that had a little something extra, a gift of goodness for your good, live gut bacteria. We created the first and only Prebiotic Kombucha using prebiotics from an organic plant fiber called xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS). XOS selectively nourishes good bacteria without promoting the growth of unwanted bacteria. Unlike some other prebiotics and dietary fibers, XOS does not cause side effects and does not require consumption in large doses.
PREBIOTICS VS PROBIOTICS
Prebiotics and probiotics are the buzzwords in gut health and they’re on shelves everywhere. But how are they different? Which is better to focus on for gut health? What roles do they play in helping us live our best lives?
- Do not naturally occur in the gut
- Are not live bacteria
- Are plant-based fibers that promote growth of probiotics
- Remain stable for long periods of time
- Are not as sensitive to outside environment
- Are necessary for Probiotics to survive and thrive
- Are used by probiotics to make short-chain fatty acids, which defend our bodies against harmful microorganisms
- Can naturally occur in the gut
- Are live bacteria and are most effective when alive
- Are good bacteria nourished by prebiotics
- Are sensitive to heat, moisture, and acid
- Do not always survive shelf life
- Need nourishment to survive and compete with 500-1000 different types of bacteria in the gut
- Use prebiotics to produce short-chain fatty acids to help defend our bodies against harmful microorganisms
