Dr Oz: Singing The Belly Blues?
Dr Oz shared that two of his Oz Nation super-fans made a video of their stomach issues, singing about their stomach and indigestion blues. Dr Oz just knew he had to welcome them to the show, and they shared that their stomach issues always come at the worst time and they go running for seltzer water, but don’t find much relief. Dr Oz said there’s actually a “power pair” that can help those with the belly blues: probiotics and prebiotics.
Dr Oz: Prebiotics & Probiotics For Healthy Gut
Dr Oz explained that there’s a battle in our bodies between the good guys and the bad guys. The good guys are the probiotics, and they can affect our moods and possibly even our weight. Prebiotics need to be given the right food like honey, oats, artichoke, garlic, onions, and bananas, to feed the good bacteria.
Natalia had a probiotic supplement sitting in front of her. Dr Oz explained that although probiotics can be found in fermented foods and yogurt, oftentimes those probiotics can’t get into your stomach. If you take a supplement it can get past your stomach. Dr Oz explained that you need to good probiotics in the right balance and feed them the prebiotics, in order to keep from singing the belly blues.
Dr Oz: Probiotic & Prebiotics Together
The two women said instead of their belly blues song, if they followed Dr Oz’s tips, they could instead be singing about belly bliss. Dr Oz then shared that they have a partnership with Usana, which makes a probiotic that you can take. It’s dairy-, gluten-, and sugar-free, and it’s a powder form, so you can add to beverages or food. Dr Oz then gave everyone in the audience a probiotic from Usana.
