Description - Probiotic and Prebiotic Recipes for Health by Tracy Olgeaty Gensler
The first cookbook on this hot health topicTrillions of bacteria naturally occur in the intestines, and most help protect the body from disease. These protective bacteria are called probiotics. Foods that nourish these good bacteria are called prebiotics. A number of factors can upset the balance between the levels of good and bad bacteria. There is evidence that consuming foods that are rich in good bacteria as well as foods that nourish these bacteria may help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the intestines and help improve health and fight certain diseases, like heart disease and cancer. This cookbook is organized by prebiotic and probiotic food recipes. Each of the 100 tasty recipes include instructions for properly cooking and storing food to preserve optimal levels of good bacteria.
