Why are prebiotics important?

A natural balance of good and bad bacteria in the intestines is needed for proper digestion and to ensure our bodies are well nourished by the food we consume. When flora is out of balance, the body is not as equipped to digest nutrients, the immune system is compromised, and digestive issues can arise.

Our bodies need plenty of good bacteria, like probiotics, to achieve a healthy balance. We also need prebiotics, which are non-digestible carbohydrates that act as food for probiotics. When combined, they form a symbiosis of live bacteria and the fuel needed for it to thrive.

Consuming foods naturally rich with probiotics such as fermented foods (sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, etc.) and nutrition like Kura protein, which is complete with 4 billion probiotics, will feed the digestive system with good bacteria for optimal health.
