Many modern diseases are linked to insufficient weak gut flora, which are killed by antibiotics allowing yeast and disease to thrive. Even if you didn’t take lots of antibiotics in your life- if you eat animal products, you are STILL ingesting antibiotics fed to the animals, which is killing your gut probiotics. Healthy gut flora is crucial for health. Most swallowed probiotics are killed in stomach acid, so it’s best to feed and reinforce the ones we have. Fiber is their main food source and these are their favorites. 97% of Americans don’t even get the minimum needed daily amount of fiber. Animal products have ZERO fiber. The number one killer in America is heart disease, and the top reason for that is animal products- including milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs, fish, chicken, creamy salad dressings, creamy soups, cottage cheese, cream cheese, cheesecake etc. They all have saturated fat, cholesterol, animal hormones foreign to the human body, including cancer antaginists like IGF-1, estrogen, methionine and choline.
Fiber helps remove cholesterol, estrogens and xenoestrogens from the body, which is why it’s great for helping prevent estrogen-driven cancers like breast, uterine and ovarian cancer- and prostate cancer in men. It helps regular movement through the digestive tract. The longer food stays in the colon, the more chances of colon diseases and colon cancer. It helps regulate and normalize blood sugar. It is the main food source of probiotics, which by the way are 2/3 of your immune system. It helps you lose weight and stay thin because it helps get rid of bad stuff in your body and it helps you feel full but doesn’t absorb into the body.
Refined bread, pasta, bagels, cereal, pancakes, fruit juice ARE NOT HEALTHY FIBER. They are low-grade, low-fiber products that feed Candida yeast, leading to disease. Even cooked vegetables are not the same anymore and are considered low fiber after being broken down by heat. The kind of fiber probiotics need is raw plant fiber, which is why most people are seriously lacking in healthy gut flora- it isn’t getting any healthy fiber! Which is why so many people are sick and overweight. At least take a spoonful of this prebiotic fiber every day to be safe.
Probiotic supplements are inadequate. Most supermarket probiotics contain Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium species. These species are specialized for digesting milk but they’re useless against more severe bowel diseases caused by chronic infections. There are over 10,000 strains of probiotics, so the best approach is to feed the ones already inside you and make them stronger.
You don’t want fiber products with FOS (fructooliosaccharides) which is an isolated sugar that feeds candida. People love it and companies try to glorify it as a great thing that feeds probiotics, and it does, but it it also feeds candida yeast which is 5 times stronger than probiotics, plus FOS causes bloating and gas. It’s ok when its still part of the plant, but not when its isolated. Other companies use it as their main ingredient because it’s mainly sugar and know people will get addicted to it and love the taste of their product and keep buying that product. But it’s self defeating to buy something to help the gut while at the same time hurting the gut by promoting uncontrolled candida growth that suffocates the delicate probiotics you are trying to nurture.
Be aware that ANY fiber can cause gas and bloating, and here’s why. The main food source for Candida yeast is sugar and refined carbs, and the main food source for probiotics (the good gut flora) is FIBER. When you eat fiber, you are feeding BILLIONS of microorganisms in your gut- that means billions of little critters eating, digesting, pooping and farting inside you. This is normal to all living things. You need these guys- they are your army fighting to keep you healthy and that army needs to be fed and anything that eats also poops and farts. This causes a buildup of gas inside you, but it is only temporary. The gas created from probiotics is not a bad thing. Noted you may not like having a bloated look for a few hours, but the next morning when you wake up, you’ll probably be more chiseled and better looking than ever!
