About Sunchokes + Prebiotics
Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes, are the fiber source used in Gist prebiotic beverages. These knobby, tuberous roots of a sunflower plant are a low-key, gut-friendly superfood. The nutrition fiber found in sunchokes feeds the gut good bacteria, working symbiotically with the body to build a healthy gut microbiome.
Scientists estimate more than half the cells in a human body are bacteria. Probiotics are the good bacteria that live within the digestive system, aiding health function and digestion. Prebiotics provide the essential nutrients to feed probiotic bacteria in the gut, helping them stimulate healing and combat bad bacteria overgrowth. A balanced microbiome is increasingly being viewed among health experts as an essential building block for overall mental and physical well-being.
