Your Flora Family with Banana and Baobab
Dietary fiber in Banana and Baobab
Banana and Baobab contain a lot of soluble fiber. During the digestion of food, most carbohydrates, fats and proteins are absorbed into the bloodstream before they even reach the colon. This leaves little for the intestinal flora to digest. Dietary fiber, however, cannot be digested by human cells, so it reaches the colon relatively unchanged. Intestinal bacteria do possess the enzymes needed to digest fiber, and this dietary fiber feeds the beneficial bacteria in the intestines. Dietary fiber acts as a prebiotic for this reason and stimulates the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, which can have positive effects on overall health.
Tryptophan in Banana and Baobab
Banana and Baobab also contain a lot of Tryptophan. This is one of the nine essential amino acids found in the body. Tryptophan supports the nitrogen balance in the body, which helps in the production of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is also considered the "happiness hormone" and can contribute to regulating anxiety, reducing depressive feelings, wound healing and bone health.

Fermentation throughout the years
Fermenting foods is something of all times, cultures and civilizations. About 30% of the human diet consists of fermented foods. This is not an unnecessary luxury, as fermented foods consist of a complete ecosystem of different compounds and nutrients that support and protect the microbiome.
Fermentation health benefits
Research suggests that regular consumption of fermented foods may reduce the risk of certain cancers, it may support the immune system, it may protect the health of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract, and it may alleviate symptoms of Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics and prebiotics
The fermentation process significantly increases the level of nutrients which are, in this way, pre-digested into a bioavailable form. New nutrients are thereby created together with a wide range of metabolic and digestive enzymes, which are also sometimes called probiotics or prebiotics.
Living culture symbiotics with Kefir and Kombucha
The products from Living Nutrition are made of a combination of the two most superior fermentation processes: Kefir, made from fermented soy milk and Kombucha, made from fermented tea. This form of fermentation is also known as "symbiotics". The following differences are found between symbiotics and single probiotics:
Are grown synthetically in laboratories
Naturally fermented from plants
Only isolated bacterial species
More than 100 balanced and evolved bacterial species
Are attaching to maltodextrin, a form of sugar, to stabilize
Attaches to natural enzymes and peptides
Contains no digestive nutrients
Rich in nutrients for digestion
Prebiotic sugars or fiber added
Wide range of natural prebiotics
Many naked, exposed bacteria
A complete, living ecosystem in harmony with the digestive microbiome
Increased bioavailability due to fermentation
The above mentioned symbiotic fermentation process, allows nutrients to be enhanced from food rather than isolating and extracting individual components, which is often done when making single probiotics. In this way, the foods and herbs in Living Nutrition's products can be preserved in their natural and complete state, which increases their bioavailability and potency. This fermentation process also creates a whole range of new compounds that can support good health, such as enzymes and metabolites.
Fermented Soy Milk in Living Nutrition
Living Nutriton uses fermented soy milk for the kefir fermentation process. In fact, sprouted soybeans contain a host of exceptional properties, including a unique balance of nutrients such as amino acids and polyphenols. After the fermentation process, these nutrients form compounds that provide wonderful support for the digestive process, the healing of tissues and for creating the optimal environment for a healthy microbiome in the intestines.
