We’re guessing you've heard of prebiotics and probiotics — but do you know what they are? Nutrition research has shown specific components of foods that improve health, and prebiotics and probiotics are two substances that definitely do.
While these "nutrition boosters" are natural ingredients in many day-to-day foods, people often opt for dietary supplements to incorporate prebiotics and probiotics into their daily intake. That’s exactly where Welly comes in.
Prebiotics for Healthy Digestion
Prebiotics are essentially non-digestible fibers (carbohydrates). Where they are beneficial is that they act as a source of food for the healthy gut bacteria, which is responsible for a healthy digestive system. Consuming prebiotics doesn’t just improve calcium absorption but decreases allergy risk, and helps in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome as well. Welly’s Gummy Pops™ are packed with prebiotics, which go a long way in strengthening your digestive system.
Probiotics are the "good" bacteria — or live cultures — like those naturally found in your gut. These active cultures can help change or repopulate intestinal bacteria to balance gut flora. This functional component may boost immunity and overall health. For instance, probiotics have been used for the management of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.
High Fiber for Gut Health
Dietary fiber benefits are only now being spoken about. Did you know that high-fiber diets can increase your life expectancy and lead to a healthier life as well? These fibers make your gut microbes thrive. The bacteria aids in digestion and reduces inflammation throughout the body. Hence, it leads to protecting you from many common intestinal diseases. Exactly why we have added high fibers in all our Gummy Pops™.
Chicory Root Fiber
Chicory roots come with anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce pain, treat cancer, and decrease bile production. Studies have also shown that chicory root fibers can increase calcium absorption and prevent bone density loss. When it comes to the formulation of our Gummy Pops™, we have used 2.6gm chicory root fiber. This prebiotic goes a long way in regulating blood sugar levels and aids healthy digestion.
Pectin is a soluble fruit fiber made up of simple sugar. It leads to good digestive health, regulates cholesterol, helps in weight loss, and diabetes. It is found in apples, oranges, citrus fruits and berries. It is a rich water-soluble fiber that binds fatty substances and eliminates them from the digestive tract. Pectin has body detoxification benefits, and it helps regulate sugar and cholesterol levels in the human body. Exactly why it’s found in our Gummy Pops™.
Locust Bean Gum
Locust bean gum is a natural gum that comes from the seeds of Carob trees. It is a soluble fiber and a natural food additive. It is extensively used as a thickening and stabilizing agent — as an alternative to gelatin. It is gluten-free and promotes the growth of good bacteria to improve your gut health. It is also used for major health concerns like diabetes, heart diseases, gut problems, and even colon cancer. It is high in lipids, protein, carbohydrates, fats, and calcium.
Supplement Your Gut
The human gut is more complex than previously thought of and has a huge impact on your overall health. A healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, heart health, brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep, and effective digestion, and it may help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases. There are a number of lifestyle changes you can make to positively affect your gut health and as a result, your overall health. And it all begins with prebiotics and probiotics.
When it comes to supplements, Welly’s range of Gummy Pops are one habit that will lead to a healthier gut, and in the process, a healthier you. The Gummy Pops come with immunity, sleep and beauty benefits. Each Gummy Pop contains only what’s written on the label — exactly what’s required for your daily intake.
