Improving Digestive Health with Prebiotics + Probiotics
Probiotics are a type of “good” bacteria that are normally present in our intestines and help to maintain the natural balance of organisms in our intestines. Probiotics reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote an overall healthy digestive system by aiding in food digestion, destruction of disease-causing microorganisms, and production of vitamins.
A probiotic would have a difficult time working effectively without prebiotics. Prebiotics, a non-digestible carbohydrate, are a form of food for the probiotics that assists their growth and function.
