Nuts Are Prebiotics
Nuts are also prebiotics: food for your bacteria. Substances in the nuts, and also in their skins, have been found to boost the good bifidobacteria and lactobacillus in the gut. Did you know that your good bacteria lower your cholesterol by using cholesterol as a food source? Did you know these good bacteria also reduce inflammation and protect your heart by keeping away endotoxins that can get into the bloodstream? Endotoxins are found in disease-causing bacteria that can penetrate a weakened gut lining. When endotoxins are released, our immune system sends out an alarm and creates inflammation throughout the body. You need to feed your bacteria lots of fiber-rich foods like nuts or your healthy bacteria starve to death inside your gut and then you wind up with leaky gut and a host of other problems. This recipe is the perfect way to accomplish the task and have a delicious probiotic treat. I hope everybody will start eating kefir nut butter. You can do this, right? It’s so easy and filled with billions of probiotics. Check out the video and recipe!
