Our pumpkin pie smoothie contains both prebiotics and probiotics that can be helpful in building and maintaining a healthy bacterial environment in the gut. For more background on what a healthy gut looks like, read our blog post Fibre is Fighting for the ‘Good’ Side.. Research indicates that both prebiotics and probiotics are effective adjunctive therapies to help reduce risk and treat a wide variety of diseases ranging from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), atopic dermatitis, and cancer, to name a few. Both pre- and probiotics are good, but they are completely different, and one should not be confused for the other.
1Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
2Garnish with pumpkin seeds if desired. Sweeten with organic maple syrup if needed.
There is plenty of research supporting the use of both pre- and probiotics, but there is still more to be done in order to truly understand their benefits.
