Probiotics and Prebiotics

Probiotics and Prebiotics are all about gut bacteria. They are there to defend against illness and collectively known as your microbiome.

Gut Microbiome

Good bacteria line your gut forming a barrier, stopping harmful bacteria invading. They also have a job of turning fibre into anti-inflammatory compounds, and manufacture B vitamins, which turn food into energy.

Probiotics and Prebiotics Symbiotic Effect


Probiotics – types of live bacteria

Prebiotics – ingredients which feed your bacteria so aren’t live

When consumed together, pre and probiotics have what we call a ‘symbiotic’ effect – they work together to balance the bacteria in your gut.
