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