The Probiotic and Prebiotic Connection

Over the years, The AIM Companies has stressed the importance of good gut bacteria known as probiotics. The latest research is now confirming the significance of prebiotics—types of fiber that good bacteria eat—establishing that these two go hand in hand to improve and maintain good health. AIM offers healthy sources of both: FloraFood probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics.

You and Your Gut Microbiome

All of the microorganisms that make up your gut microbiome (or microbiota) can be thought of as a nurturing and protective army. Your microbiome helps to keep you alive by performing many important duties, such as digesting food, absorbing nutrients, forming short-chain fatty acids (primary nutrient of cells lining the colon), producing vitamins and defending you from disease-causing pathogens.

Many of the pathogens your gut battles against are types of bad bacteria. These bad guys are believed to be factors in the onset of inflammation, obesity and a variety of chronic diseases by overpopulating your microbiome until they are out of balance with your good bacteria.

Consuming probiotics in FloraFood help to keep your gut in a balanced state. And with the latest research showing that probiotics thrive by eating prebiotic fiber that you cannot digest, AIM has a duo of products that supports a balanced microbiome.

FloraFood Probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics

As a source of probiotics, FloraFood contains three types of good bacteria: Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum. Each capsule delivers 3 billion good bacteria that back up your nurturing and protective army.

To help feed this army, the fit ’n fiber formula includes three types of prebiotic fiber: acacia, konjac (glucomannan) and guar gum. Each serving delivers a significant amount of food for probiotics: 8 grams of prebiotics to feed FloraFood’s 3 billion good bacteria, helping them to grow and reproduce exponentially to ensure a balanced microbiome.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.
