We all know eating fiber is important however there are 2 types of fiber, soluble (which help us stool easily) and insoluble fiber which work harder in keeping us healthy. The insoluble fibers are what we call Prebiotics.

Most of us have heard about Probiotics, however PREBIOTICS which are very important for our health are not often talked about.

They are non-digestible Fibers in food that you eat that pass through the stomach and small intestine undigested.

Why are they Important?

You see, when you eat foods rich in prebiotic fibers e.g Tigernuts, the bacteria in your large intestine ferment these fibers and use them for energy.

Bacterial fermentation of Prebiotics produce a very important compound called BUTYRATE.

1) Butyrate keeps your Gut intact.

Butyrate provides 70% of energy for the cells of your large intestine. So, the less Prebiotic fibers you eat, your Colon cells can not produce Butyrate, hence start to die off out of lack of energy.

2) Butyrate may prevent inflammation-mediated ulcerative colitis (UC) and colorectal cancer.

This is why Scientists advise you to eat more prebiotic fibers daily as part of a healthy diet for good Gut health.

3) Butyrate has anti-inflammatory properties.

Recent scientific research has shown that Chronic Inflammation can cause/worsen Heart Disease.

Eating high prebiotic fiber foods like tigernuts protects you against Heart Disease.

4) Butyrate also modulates immune response in the body. Hence whenever you are faced with a serious infection, the butyrate your body produces from eating prebiotic fibers will help modulate your immune cells to fight such infections.

Tigernuts have a very high content of Prebiotic fiber.

Just half a cup of Tigernuts will give you a complete amount your Daily recommended Fiber intake.
