Prebiotics and Probiotics

Now you can have all the benefits of probiotics along with a balance of vital nutrients in one convenient and delicious dark chocolate-dipped snack bar.

Truth Bars combine 1 billion Probiotic CFU’s, fiber-rich prebiotics, micronutrients, and 'good' fats to help balance your gut’s microbiome.  A Truth Bar a Day, as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, can help you maintain a healthy gut that can digest your food properly and efficiently transport energy to power your body and mind.

Your Daily Truth Bar

A single Truth Bar, enjoyed daily, provides all the benefits of probiotics, plus fiber, Omega 3’s, antioxidants and nutrients that help to optimize your gut and stabilize your circulatory, immune, and endocrine systems.

Here’s why.

What are Probiotics? 

Probiotics are the strong, silent heroes of our digestive system.  They consist of “good bacteria” that help our bodies breakdown food to unlock the vitamins and acids to more easily pass through our gut walls to fuel our immune system and metabolic engine.  

Probiotics are live cultures that serve as peacemakers in our intestines, balancing our microbiome, the community of healthy, vigorous bacteria known as gut flora.  They are naturally found in our bodies and can be supplemented by pills, certain foods and Truth Bars, which are enriched with probiotics suitable for daily use.

Benefits of Probiotics

Taking care of the bacteria in your gut with the benefits of probiotics may be the single most important thing you can do for your health.

The benefits of probiotics are understood to:

Prebiotics and Probiotics

In order for probiotics to thrive long enough to do their work in our bodies, they need prebiotics to feed them.

Prebiotics and probiotics work hand-in-hand. Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible food ingredients that are linked to promoting the growth of 'helpful' bacteria in your gut. Simply said, they are food for probiotics. Prebiotics may improve gastrointestinal health as well as potentially enhance calcium absorption.

Prebiotics and probiotics do not naturally occur in the same foods—but they are both present in optimal amounts in every Truth Bar. That’s why a daily Truth Bar is the quickest, most convenient way to balance your gut with both prebiotics and probiotics in one healthy, scrumptious daily snack.

Prebiotic Foods

Prebiotic foods like garlic, onions, Jerusalem artichokes, jicama, and dandelion greens pass through the upper part of the GI tract and remain undigested. There they meet up with the 'good bacteria' from probiotic foods and help restore balance to a person's microbiome.

Probiotic Foods 

Probiotic foods include yogurt with live and active cultures, kefir, asparagus, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, miso, blue algae, and kombucha.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about PREBIOTICS and PROBIOTICS:

What is a Prebiotic?

Prebiotics come from plants, usually root plants that contain a lot of fiber and feed the good bacteria in your gut.

Why is it important to have both prebiotics and probiotics?

Probiotics alone cannot grow without a healthy gut to support them. When combining a nurturing base of prebiotics in the belly, with a good dose of probiotics, a garden of flora blossoms and fills the gut with a balanced microbiome.

Can your body make its own Conjugated Lineolic Acid?

You certainly have the gut flora to make your very own CLA. It’s one of the many things your lactobacilli and bifidobacteria do for you.

It’s important to have healthy gut flora to be able to make CLA. People with gut dysbiosis have a significantly harder job of it – possibly one reason why obesity and gut dysfunction tend to go hand-in-hand. So if you’ve been eating well for a while and your gut is humming along nicely, you can probably count on a substantial CLA intake from gut flora. If you’re eating is not so “healthy” or you simply aren’t producing enough good bacteria, Truth Bar can help by giving probiotic support to build up your colonies of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.
