Dr Oz: Prebiotics Feed Probiotics
You’ve hit that certain age and every time you eat, you feel like there is a battle going on in your stomach. When you’re stressed out, your stomach acts up. Do you ever eat a meal and feel as though you’re about to give birth to twins? If this is you, Doctor Oz has the remedy to help ease your intestines. You don’t have to live with belly pain any longer. You don’t have to look like you’ve swallowed a bowling ball. With his simple remedies, Dr Oz will have you feeling better in no time, which is why it is part of the How to Restart Your Body Dr Oz Show!
Dr Oz had 3 audience members join him on stage to elongate the intestines. (It had to have stretched out to at least 30 feet long.) This is what’s inside of you and can hold poop in you for 3-4 days at a time. (Not a good thing, though.) Food should move through automatically and should pass through the rectum with no problem at all. But this isn’t always the case.
Your intestines work best when you’re calm, but this too is not always the case. Between work home, the kids etc…, you may feel bloated, constipated and even have diarrhea. The good news is, you can restart your intestines with little effort.
How Are Prebiotics & Probiotics Different?
This is PRE-biotics and not PRO biotics, which Dr Oz has talked about several times. Pre-biotics and pro-biotics work together to keep the intestines functioning properly. While pro-biotics are bacteria, like yogurt, that aid your guts, pre-biotics are the food you eat to help the pro-biotics along.
What Foods Contain Prebiotics?
Pro-biotic foods include cooked grains, honey, bananas, onions and garlic. To get the maximum benefits, eat 2-4 servings per day.
