EcoBloom – A Prebiotic That Feeds The Probiotics

ecobloom

I discovered EcoBloom when I started on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my systemic yeast overgrowth. This prebiotic fiber is the perfect food for good flora (probiotics) that live inside our digestive system; known as the gut. The 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.

Get Cultured: The Benefit of Unsalted, Probiotic Food

The cultured food I am talking about here does not contain salt …. cultured buttercreme fraichecoconut kefir, cultured vegetables; all living foods made with probiotic starter*. NO salt. See more about that bit here.

When you eat unsalted, cultured food, the probiotics in them will go into your gut/inner ecosystem and set up shop where they make babies, grow in population, and essentially build micro-cities the size of New York City in a matter of hours. No joke. Once they settle into your gut lining they are in a position to support you in various beneficial ways.

The Nerdy Part of Food Combining

gutMany of you know that I’m a big fan of food combining. This is something I learned how to do when I was on B.E.D to heal yeast overgrowth and now years later continue to do with each meal. Practicing this one principle each time I eat is one of the reasons why I rarely get bloated or have stomach issues.

Proper food combining happens when you eat foods that are compatible with each other. That go well with each other. In nerdy terms of digestive chemistry the term proper food combining means”what foods to eat with what”.

Different food groups (starches, protein, fruit) require different digestion times and different gastric juices to break ’em down. Sound complicated? It’s not! I’ve been food combining for years. So do my kids 🙂
