Plantains are a wonderful prebiotic, meaning they feed the good bacteria in your large intestines. That good bacteria in turn produces short chain fatty acids, or SCFA’s. One SCFA in particular, butyrate, is especially important in protecting the brain, is an overall anti-carcinogenic, and is extremely anti-inflammatory!
