Prevention is better than cure: Why we championed Prebiotics

Why we championed Prebiotics

It’s science. A healthier gut means a healthier you. But how does it work? We all have good and bad bacteria cruising around deep inside. And for the good guys to keep us healthy, they need to gain the upper hand in the gut. This means they need to thrive and multiply, which can only happen when they’re fed. Their favourite food? Prebiotics - the foundational plant fibre blend in every sip of Deeply. 


The Positive Power of Prebiotics

Prebiotics are non-digestible nutrients found in fibre-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, pulses, nuts, seeds and you guessed it - Deeply. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in our gut, supplying the energy necessary for their optimal functioning.

After consumption, prebiotics reach the lower digestive tract, bypassing digestion. It’s here that gut bacteria happily feast upon prebiotics through a process called fermentation. This fascinating transformation gives rise to a range of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) - the three main ones being: acetate, butyrate and propionate. And these acids bring about many health benefits for our body, including anti-inflammatory, immunoregulatory, anti-obesity, anti-diabetes, anticancer, cardiovascular protective, hepatoprotective, and neuroprotective activities. 


The Bottom Line

At Deeply we believe prevention is better than cure. To nurture a healthy gut, prebiotics are essential. While including probiotics as a dietary supplement tops up bacteria that may or may not thrive in your gut, prebiotics are the essential daily food that help your good microbes to thrive and multiply.

By including prebiotic-rich Deeply in your daily routine, you can enhance the levels of good bugs in your gut flora - fostering a thriving and healthy gut ecosystem. It provides the necessary nourishment for gut bacteria to thrive and delivers numerous health benefits to help you feel your most vibrant self. Benefits may include: better skin, better sleep, better mood, and a better functioning immune system.

Prioritising prebiotics means prioritising your gut health - leading to a happier and healthier you. Easiest way to do this? Feeding the good guys in your gut with a Deeply every day. Easy.
