Elderberries contain polyphenols, powerful micronutrients packed with antioxidants, that offer protection from the development of many diseases. One study states that “polyphenols act by enhancing the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting the growth of pathogens, thus exert prebiotic-like effects.” You can find that study here. https://bit.ly/2BI4tEc
Did you know that 70% of your immune system resides in your gut? When your immune system is weak, more times than not it can be linked to what’s going on in your gut.
The gut MUST be in balance for optimal immunity. To do this, avoid diets filled with processed, sugary and fatty foods like simple carbs and gluten. These foods allow for bad bacteria to grow exponentially, putting the gut out of balance.
What can you do to have a balanced, healthy gut?
For a healthy gut, eat more fruits, veggies and more fermented foods, like sauerkraut or yogurt, which are great sources of probiotics also known as good bacteria. It’s also important to consume prebiotics, food for probiotics which can be found in foods like asparagus, onions and apples. And don’t forget to eat foods rich in polyphenols like elderberries, blueberries, almonds and broccoli.
