I discovered EcoBloom while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth. After reading Donna Gates’ book (see here) I realized this prebiotic fiber is ideal for re-establishing good gut flora, a.k.a. probiotics in our digestive system, a.k.a. “the gut”.
Good gut flora use EcoBloom as a primary source of food. This is a good thing, because the better fed they are, the better health we have.
EcoBloom is a powder made of 100% chicory extract and medium/long chain FOS (fructooligosaccharides). It does not feed bad flora (i.e. yeast, bacteria, viruses) that live in the gut, but does feed the good flora.
If you have a health issue going on where the bad flora are acting up and causing health problems then you are in a perfect position to bring in a concentrated food source that is perfect for the good flora. They will eat this food and grow bigger in #’s so they can return to their police role and keep bad flora in check and lesser numbers than they themselves. This is why feeding the ‘good’ more than the ‘bad’ is great 🙂
Ingredients: 100% chicory extract powder (called Frutafit Inulin or FOS)
- Feeds good flora living inside gut.
- Suppresses pathogenic growth (i.e. Candida, group B strep).
- Reduces toxins in liver and colon.
- Helps heal leaky gut.
- Stimulates immune system.
- Reduces colon pH.
- Enhances absorption of minerals, esp. calcium.
- Perfect for anyone healing with B.E.D. or GAPS.
Here is online quiz you can take to see if you have yeast overgrowth.
EcoBloom can be added to baked goods, salad dressing, Ujido Matcha, or green smoothies or into unsalted probiotic food (i.e. cultured veggies, yck) to help these already powerful foods become more potent.
