We hope you had a chance to check out the Facebook Live interview with Microbiologist Kiran Kirshnan!
If not be sure to check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/SilverFernBrands/videos/626452807519052/
Kiran discusses the role that the right strains of probiotics along with a high fiber diet and the right eating schedule can do to restore your metabolism and increase fat burning. Silver Fern™ Brand’s products are specifically designed to make metabolic restoration easy.
But wait… there’s more!
Right on the heels of Kiran’s interview is an article published at IFT.com that discusses the important role that fiber plays in a healthy gut. Silver Fern™ Brand’s prebiotic soluble fiber pairs all of these same amazing benefits described in this article with probiotics proven to convert prebiotic fiber into even more fat busting short-chain fatty acid compounds.
Some key bits:
Hoffman explains that the goal is to develop food that can help maintain a balance, or a mutualism, between our body cells and our gut microbiome cells. When the system is in balance positive outcomes, including increased metabolism, enhanced cognitive function, and immune system development, are made possible. Dysfunctional microbiomes, on the other hand, are associated with issues including human chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and asthma.
In his role at Tate & Lyle, Hoffman has been studying how prebiotic fibers can impact the gut microbiome. Prebiotics are a selectively fermented ingredients that allow specific changes both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confer benefits. Certain prebiotic fibers have the ability to enhance the production of short chain fatty acids (SCFA), improve anti-inflammatory activity, and strengthen the gut barrier function. Tate & Lyle’s soluble corn fiber—Promitor—has been the focus of recent research conducted by the company and also by other researchers. It has been shown to have a good digestive tolerance because it is not rapidly fermented in the colon and therefore takes longer to metabolize. The fiber has also been shown to produce SCFAs at equal levels throughout the colon.
