Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Enzymes: What Are Their Roles In Gut Health?
Before getting into the specifics of Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Enzymes, it is helpful to understand the overall gut ecosystem.
In your gut, there is a lining, and that lining is covered with organisms. The organisms live in a micro-ecosystem which is called a microbiome. Your microbiome is an important part of your overall gut health and what goes into the microbiome has an impact on your gut health. A healthy microbiome effectively supports overall wellbeing and health. A healthy gut biome typically has a balance of around 1,000 bacterial species. Prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes all play an important role in helping to support this balance.
AloeCure produces a number of products that help support this biome by providing prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes in a bio-available format.
What Are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics come from carbohydrates that are primarily fiber and that humans are unable to digest. While prebiotics may not be bio-available for humans, good bacteria that live in your gut eat this type of fiber and they are quite beneficial to supporting the biome. These gut flora, or gut bacteria, perform many essential functions in your body.
The food you eat plays an essential part in this delicate balance of gut bacteria. The key is supporting the good bacteria with a constant flow of prebiotics that helps support and encourage the colonization of your gut by these bacteria, thereby helping maintain a healthy balance.
The good bacteria help support a healthy gut flora and have been linked to supporting your immune system and a healthy body mass, among a host of other positive health outcomes. This is a significant part of the reason why it is important to support these biomes, especially when being exposed to environmental impacts or antibiotics, which can upset the balance of good bacteria in your gut.
When we designed our Probiotic + Enzyme Blend here at AloeCure, helping keep your gut in healthy balance was a considerable part of our consideration and why we decided to include 5 essential prebiotics that supports the good digestive bacteria in your gut. It’s a unique and natural blend designed to support your entire gut structure 24/7.
Furthermore, Pure Aloe Vera Juice acts as a fantastic natural pre-biotic. It helps not only support healthy immune function, but also helps maintain balanced stomach acidity, which supports nutrient absorption in your gut.
What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are the live microorganisms that actually comprise the biome in your digestive tract and are a critical component of your digestive tract. These microorganisms are found in nearly all food consumed, but are extremely concentrated in yogurt, dietary supplements, and fermented foods.
Different types of probiotics can have different effects on the body. For example, they can support your body's immune system. Probiotics can help your gut microorganisms to maintain a healthy community. Or they can help re-establish microorganisms after being disturbed, such as after an illness or when taking antibiotics intended for other bacteria in the body that unfortunately also impact your gut.
Probiotic supplements contain live organisms, and single doses usually contain a blend of microbes or strains of microbes. When taking a probiotic, it is important that you make sure you are targeting the primary strains present in a healthy human biome.
AloeCure’s Probiotic + Enzyme Blend contains 8 essential probiotic strains that help seed the growth of good bacteria in your gut. It also has 3 necessary digestive enzymes that support the breakdown of fats, proteins, and carbs in food.
What Are Enzymes?
Digestive enzymes are different from probiotics. Digestive enzymes are found all over our bodies and are microscopic protein molecules that have their own shape. Enzymes found in your digestive system primarily function by breaking down different types of food molecules into more basic components that are absorbable by your body. Once they're broken down, then the components can be absorbed through the gut wall and bloodstream.
Digestive enzymes are found throughout the digestive tract in various locations and are produced by your body as well as imported via food you consume. Within your body, enzymes are primarily produced in the pancreas, the small intestine, and the stomach.
Digestive enzyme supplements, such as AloeCure’s Probiotic + Enzyme supplement, can help to support the enzyme balance in your digestive tract, thereby supporting full nutrient absorption in your digestive tract.
In addition to AloeCure’s Probiotic + Enzyme supplement, Aloe Vera in the form of Advanced Formula Aloe Capsules and Pure Aloe Vera Juice are rich in enzymes and can help to support the natural balance in your digestive system. Whatever the case AloeCure features a number of products designed to support your digestive and immune health and wellness.
