Healthy Holidays with Plexus

Stress and fatigue can make us reach for snacks throughout the day, and without noticing, we can easily accumulate pounds on the sly. Getting all the nutrition we need from our food is also becoming increasingly more crucial as the nutrients in our soil are depleted. A healthy shake could be the solution to fuel and nourish our bodies. A Plexus meal replacement can do just that, as it delivers all the nutrients you need for a feeling of satiety.

Plexus meal replacements can help you fight hunger pangs, maintain your ideal weight, and keep your muscles lean. They also contain crucial prebiotics to balance your gut microbiome. Senior Nutrition Scientist at Plexus, Michael P. Rogowski, Ph.D explains why you need to take prebiotics on a daily basis:
1. Prebiotics are a great source of fiber: The FDA recently increased dietary fiber recommendations from 25g/day to 28g. Some approved fiber sources that are also prebiotics include: inulin and inulin-type fructans (FOS), galactooligosaccharides, polydextrose, and guar gum.

2. Prebiotics are a healthy part of your diet: Potent antioxidants naturally found in fruits and vegetables, like flavonoids and polyphenols are prebiotic substances for healthy gut microbes.

3. Prebiotics have cross functionality:  The microbiome is composed of over a thousand species of microorganisms. Despite recent advances this field of research it is still new. We are still working toward identifying the most efficacious and potent strains for candidate probiotics. Prebiotics are selective in their ability to be used by microorganisms. But they can foster the growth of numerous beneficial strains, as opposed to enhancing the colonization of just one or a handful typically found in probiotics. 

All formulas contain 5 grams of dietary fiber, including prebiotic fiber to support digestion and gut health and digestive enzymes, bioavailable forms of 24 vitamins and minerals – including 5-MTHF, calcium, and methylated folate, amino acids as well as plant-based healthy fats. They are free from GMOs, gluten allergens, artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, and artificial preservatives.
