Good Guts

prebiotic fibre 

A daily helping of tiger nuts can help you feel HEALTHY and HAPPY! 

Understanding the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic is vital – Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria. Prebiotics are carbohydrates, that gets to your gut and feeds your good gut bacteria!

High Fibre

fibre for health

A fibre rich diet can help to promote bowel transit, prevent constipation, diverticulosisbowel cancer and haemorrhoids.  Dietary fibre can also help obesity by keeping us fuller for longer and helping slow the release of glucose and insulin. Soluble fibres have been shown to help normalise serum cholesterol levels by binding directly to cholesterol, decreasing the chance of re-absorption and promoting excretion.

Low Sugar

reduce sugar consumption 

People are eating more sugar than ever before, and experts now know that it can damage our health in many ways. Adding sugar to drinks is associated with diabetes and weight gain.   Whilst naturally occurring sugars in whole foods such as fruit and vegetables are ok - we need to cut down on 'free sugars' which is sugar that is added to food and drink, either by ourselves, manufacturers or cooks.
