Comforting spice cake with a little whipped cream warms the soul. Now you can also feed your gut at the same time when you make this prebiotic spice cake with Gundry MD PrebioThrive.
This prebiotic spice cake an easy treat that's made in a mug and utilizes the fibers in the Gundry MD supplement as the flour. Prebiotic fibers like acacia fiber, inulin, and oligosaccharidges help your gut flora thrive. All that aside, the cake is also very flavorful, moist and airy.
We're going to use a combination of cinnamon, ginger, and clove for the spice cake. Did you know, gram for gram CLOVES have the highest concentration of polyphenols of any food?
To get a bit scientific here, polyphenols are what's known as secondary metabolites, which means they are organic compounds produced by bacteria, fungi, or plants which are not directly involved in the normal growth, development, or reproduction of the organism. Polyphenols play another necessary role in the plant's well-being. They defend their plants against ultraviolet radiation or aggression by pathogens. In the last decade, there has been a lot of focus on the health benefits of dietary plant polyphenols as antioxidants.
Epidemiological studies and associated meta-analyses strongly suggest that long term consumption of diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's for example. That said, I've been sprinkling ground cloves on my baked sweet potatoes, coffee, and making lots of these prebiotic spice cakes.
Okay, let's make this comforting cake.
