Jarrow Formulas Inulin and FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) are soluble fibers that promote gut and overall health through their fermentation by gut flora, to yield important metabolites, including lactic acid and the short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate and butyrate.
These metabolites help to maintain proper pH in the gut, discourage the growth of unfriendly bacteria, reduce the absorption of toxic ammonia and positively affect bone health by increasing the bioavailability of dietary calcium. Moreover, acetate, propionate and butyrate promote the integrity of the intestinal cells lining the colon and promote healthy lipid metabolism.

Orafti®Synergy1 delivers both long-chain and short-chain saccharides to the gut, optimizing the growth of beneficial bacteria.

How to overcome picky eating habits as an adult?

Not sure how the situation is for you, but I bet you have foods you struggle with and don't enjoy eating. 
This is the same for me and my partner. We enjoy teasing each other about foods one of us dislikes, but the other person enjoys. 
He has no problem eating corned (canned) beef, which for me, resembles canned cat or dog food too much to even want to try eating it. 
Oat porridge just looks like vomit or sludge to me, and I won't try it, despite knowing it's a decent slow carb for breakfast. 
Likewise I abhor eating soft-boiled or runny eggs while he loves eating those.
 
Vice versa, he abhors using various condiments which I adore, such as sriracha (hot sauce) which I tend to use on almost anything that may be spiced up, piccalilli for fries. Nor is he crazy about eating fish or chicken that you need to pick clean yourself out of fear to choke on a hidden bone, while it gives me childish joy to eat with my bare hands.
 
Frankly, my partner has or used to have a rather limited range of foods he enjoys. This is probably an inherited trait as his biological father was known for being an extremely picky eater.  So much so, that it probably contributed to his early death in his late twenties. 
 
 

Snacking late at night: a habit you should embrace rather than be embarrassed about!

One of the most persistent food myths that are still lingering around and is almost universally believed, is how eating late at night is bad for you: you will gain fat, sleep poorly and suffer from gastric distress.
 
Since the early 2000s I grew accustomed to eating a late night meal of dairy protein before going to bed because it helped me to fall asleep more easily, especially after strenuous exercise in daytime. 
My partner would not eat that very same meal  before regular bedtime, but eat it after waking up after his first sleep cycle at around 3-4am.  
While both of us used to stick to quark in the past due to its higher protein content , we now prefer yoghurt because of the live probiotics in it, and may add extra protein powder to raise its protein content when we aren't eating skyr yoghurt. 
 
Since starting on this habit I've been annoyed by hearing this perpetual nonsense and would love to put this myth at rest. 
 Whether or not eating late at night is good for you or not depends on the quantity and quality of the food you eat eating throughout the day. 
 
Most people who do snack at night, don't make healthy choices, and go for that tub of ice cream, that bar of chocolate or bag of crisps, which is why eating late at night got such a bad reputation.
 
However, time doesn’t really matter. 

Why can resistant starch improve your blood sugar balance?

Among the most popular good intentions we have before the new year starts is to improve health and lose weight.
Sadly, for many of us, those good intentions fall by the wayside within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. The main reason for failing on any given diet is that it tends to be a too drastic change in how we tend to eat.
Which for most of us, tends to be a moderate to high-carb diet, which for most Dutch people tends to revolve around bread and potatoes. That will make it very hard if you want to make a switch to a low-carb diet as is the norm these days.

However, I've got good news for you! You may not need to give up on all of your carbs. Instead, you can try to switch from carbs that have a negative impact on your blood sugar balance, towards slow-acting carbs also known as ... resistant starch.
Even when you are quite happy about eating a (very) low-carb diet, there are still ways to increase the amount of resistant starch in your diet, without drastically increasing the amount of calories and 'net carbs'.

Therefore the article below will tell you everything about resistant starch you need to know.

Healthy bowel function: how does normal poop look like?

One of the major challenges during a heatwave is to drink enough water, so you don't end up dehydrated because the body evaporates so quickly. 
One of the more painful results of dehydration is needing to spend much more time in the restroom, sometimes even resulting in a hemorrhage. 
Vice versa, we eat more salads and BBQ-foods, both of which are known to cause diarrhea due to improper preparation or preservation. 
 
It is quite obvious that in order to have a pleasant and not too long stay in the restroom, our stools should neither contain too little nor too much water. Most of us will probably have a habit of quickly inspecting their stool, even if it is just the brief moment before flushing it down the toilet. Apart from observing the consistency of your stool, what else can you observe from inspecting your stool?

What are the different types of poop?

Poop, also known as stool or feces, is a normal part of the digestive process. Poop consists of waste products that are being eliminated from the body. It may include undigested food particles, bacteria, salts, and other substances such as improperly absorbed drugs.
 
Sometimes, poop can vary in its colour, texture, amount, and odor. These differences can be worrying, but usually, these changes are not significant and will resolve in a day or two. Other times, however, changes in poop indicate a more serious condition.

Food poisoning

By this time of year, it has become warm enough to spend more time in our gardens. We don't just spend time gardening, but will want to dine here, too. And possibly prepare food on the BBQ or at least prepare a food buffet on holidays such as Kings Day. Unfortunately, a festive meal especially during warm weather is almost automatically associated with stomach bugs.

For elderly persons, the cause of food poisoning is mostly different. They have frequently been raised in a time of food scarcity and are less prone to discard food that is past its expiration date. Or as happening during the current lockdown, they will want to go grocery shopping as little as possible, so they may be eating food that would have been discarded otherwise. However, at their age, they will become sick more easily due to reduced immunity than a young person who has less qualms about throwing out spoiled food.

Foodborne illness, more commonly referred to as food poisoning, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. According to reliable data 1 in 6 persons will contract some form of food poisoning every year.

Food poisoning symptoms

If you have food poisoning, chances are it won’t go undetected. Symptoms can vary depending on the source of the infection. The length of time it takes for symptoms to appear also depends on the source of the infection, but it can range from as little as 1 hour to as long as 28 days. Common cases of food poisoning will typically include at least three of the following symptoms:

How to prepare for a quarantine such as COVID-19

Like most of you, we have been following the news on the COVID-19 virus pandemic closely since early January.
With a rapid increase of both infections and people who have been in contact with infected persons, the amount of people who need to go into quarantine, rapidly increases too. Never mind how the entire population in Italy is forced to stay inside with more countries to follow soon.

With ever stricter rules in place, people suddenly realized they are not prepared for events like this, and started buying goods left and right without much of a plan.
Like most of you, I have also not given this much thought, so it stands to reason to go take a look in the USA where 'prepping' for disasters is popular, and rightly so because of the more dramatic weather conditions. Because people in North America generally live much further away from supermarkets and do not always have access to good tap water and electricity power may go off for longer periods of time,most advice given is superfluous for our society where power outages are rare and tap water reliable.
Hence that part of the advice was omitted in the article below.

What is quarantine?

The main rule of quarantine is: "nobody comes in and nobody goes out". If you are in quarantine, you are distancing yourself from people aside from the ones in quarantine with you, like your family or roommates. The reason for this is to stop the spread of an illness or possible illness.

What causes gall stones and how to get rid of them?

Many people suffer from gallstones. While it's possible to have gallstones and not know it, severe cases can lead to rupturing of the gallbladder and even death. Understanding your gallbladder and naturally supporting it with the right nutrition is imperative for good health.

How to get in enough fluids and not feel embarassed 

Whomever is interested in health and fitness will have been told countless times to drink enough fluids to stay healthy!
What they never tell you, is how to combine drinking plenty fluids with being out and about on the road or stuck in a place where you aren't allowed to take potty breaks! Yikes!

I can't even begin to tell you the amount of times when I was cycling some event and needing to pee so badly, but not find a bush to hide behind. Or, when I did see one, already have gone past it, and of course you never ever turn around, but pedal onwards.
Oh, how I envied my shameless male companions, who simply could get off at a tree and empty their bladder.
But even men encounter a problem when it comes to what is called, doing a 'number 2'.

Can artificial sweeteners harm gut health and make you gain weight?

Early September we published an overview of various natural and artificial sweeteners that are currently available and possible avantages or disadvantages associated to them.
Until very recently the clear-cut explanation of all official governmental dietary agencies as well as most mainstream dieticians was that artificial sweeteners are harmless and not a single iota of proof was available to the contrary.

Even your humble writer still believed sweeteners are relatively harmless as by definition, rats and mice aren't human so evidence about harmfulness for those laboratory animals doesn't prove too much.
However, over time more and more evidence has come up that artificial sweeteners are truly not as good for your waistline as you think they are, in ways that wasn't looked at before. Our gut microbes, which have a bigger influence on your weight and insulin sensitivity than we realize, are negatively inflenced by the artificial sweeteners we ingest.

Artificial or natural sweeteners: which one is the best choice?

For several decadese, there's a disturbing trend in which the majority of the population has gained weight as a result of overeating and/or underexercising.
Most experts agree on how a big part of the over consumption is caused by ever larger portion sizes of junkfood. Junkfood is very cheap to make, as it can be stored for such a long period of time and lacks in the most expensive macro nutrient: protein. It also has virtually zero micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and most of all, the precious antioxidants we derive from vegetables and fruits.

An ongoing discussion is how to stimulate lower calorie intake as well as making exercise more attractive.

Do we guide the general public by offering colour codes, in which green colour signifies the 'right' choice and a red colour the 'wrong' one, whatever the guidance may be. Don't get me started either on fake margarine being promoted and real butter and coconut oil being damned as 'evil saturated fats'.

Or do we punish the industry by banning over-sized junkfood? It isn't even so long ago when the standard sized bottle of lemonade was 'only' 1 litre or less! Now 2 litres is quickly becoming the norm. 

A few weeks ago the Dutch government published her decision to stimulate the choice for lower- and zero calorie drinks by lowering the taxation on mineral water as well as that of artificially sweetened soft drinks.

In the light of the upcoming 50% increase of taxation on all foods from 6% to 9% as of January 1, 2019, the majority of people was outraged!
How is it possible outright beneficial health foods such as vegetables and fruits aren't subsidized and get 0% taxation?

A lot of people stipulated how artificial sweeteners are not good for your health, while others reassuringly sussed these complaints, stating that e.g. aspartame has been researched for decades and barely any negative side-effects have been reported.

Hence why we are on a quest to find out more about low-glycemic low-caloric sweeteners. Are they good substitutes for real sugar?

Separating chaff from the wheat or the importance of indigestible fiber

Sandwiched in between sugar and the starches are a group of carbohydrates called oligosaccharides, that we never heard much about until recently, and most people  probably still have no idea what they are.

Be kind to your bowels!

Probiotics or beneficial bacteria are important for good digestive health. In order to keep these same bacteria happy and thriving, they need to be fed PRE-biotics, in other words, fiber!
Fiber is the undigestable part of vegetable foods. The most common source of fiber are beans and legumes, onions and garlic, cabbage, unpeeled potatoes as well as fruits such as raisins, figs, prunes, berries and (unripe) bananas.
