Prebiotic foods help to feed your gut biome. The trillions of microorganisms in your digestive tract help to digest food and also help your hormones and your immune system.
If they are well balanced and are thriving this can help you to be more resilient and healthier.
To keep them "fed" well then it is important to reduce consumption of processed foods, in particular ultra processed foods. Instead swap in whole foods such as vegetables and fruit.
Typical well known prebiotic foods include:
Jerusalem artichoke (aka sunchokes)
Milk (from grass fed/organic/biodynamic sources)
Whole grains (not processed but the literal whole grain such as brown rice, barley, millet)
