What’s Unique About This Breakfast Bowl Recipe?
First of all, our recipe contains BIOHM Super Greens Probiotic Powder, a powdered supplement packed with probiotics and super greens, such as wheatgrass, spinach, broccoli, and parsley. It has a formula that combines herbal extracts, fruits, and vegetables with enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics, which are essential chemicals in the body. To better understand the health benefits our powdered supplement can offer, let’s discuss what’s in it.
EnzymesWhat are enzymes? Enzymes, the specialized proteins in the body, are responsible for speeding up the body's chemical reaction rate taking place in the cells. They play a major role in the body's metabolism and digestion. Some enzymes aid in the breakdown of large molecules into small ones, so the body can easily absorb them. Other enzymes work by binding two molecules together to create another molecule.
PrebioticsPrebiotics are nutrients not digested by our body. Good bacteria that thrive in the stomach use them as a source of energy, providing a healthy bacterial influence in the intestine that the body can benefit from. One study on colorectal cancer revealed that people who regularly eat fruits and vegetables, in which prebiotics are mostly present, have a lower risk of developing the disease.
ProbioticsProbiotics are beneficial microorganisms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract with different strains that provide various health benefits. They conquer bad organisms, like digestive plaque, in the GI tract to reduce risks of diseases and infection. These beneficial organisms also help regulate immune responses to improve healthy reactions to organisms that promote infection and aid in suppressing inflammation.
Fruits are naturally rich in essential vitamins and minerals, but there's one nutrient many of the fruits contain: fiber. Fiber plays a crucial role in bowel movements.
Like fruits, vegetables are also high in essential vitamins and nutrients. Wheatgrass, for example, has high amounts of enzymes that help to break down food and absorb the nutrients. It also has a detox effect that cleanses the stomach, reducing the risk of experiencing abdominal discomfort, bloating, and gas. Spinach is rich in water and fiber which both help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation.

Why Is It Important to Have Breakfast?
Eating breakfast or digging into your breakfast bowl breaks the fasting period you had the night before, allowing you to replenish the glucose supply for energy and provide nutrients that help you make it through the day healthily. The overnight fasting makes your glycogen, the glucose stored in the liver and muscle tissue, supply low. Once your body consumes this glycogen supply, it starts to use fatty acids for energy. But without carbs, where you get your glucose, fatty acids are not completely oxidized, leading to reduced energy levels. Eating breakfast can also help you start your day healthily and feeling energized. This will allow you to have a productive day.
What Other Healthy and Nutritious Foods Can You Add to Your Breakfast Bowl?Aside from the breakfast bowl recipe we presented here, you can always have it your way and continue to experiment with a hearty breakfast. Don’t forget to mix in BIOHM Super Greens Probiotic Powder to further boost the digestive benefits of your first meal of the day. The following are the list of foods good for your digestive health:
1. Peppermint OilPeppermint oil is extracted from the leaves of the peppermint plant with the potential to help people with digestive issues. The oil contains menthol, a compound that can help relieve the symptoms of bowel movement issues, stomach discomfort, and bloating as it relaxes the muscles of the GI tract. It also helps relieve indigestion as it accelerates the movement of food in the stomach through the digestive system.
