Probiotics. Prebiotics. What’s the difference? Prebiotics directly feed the beneficial bacteria already present in your gut and are a food source for probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria used to replenish the bacteria in your gut and support your digestive system and provide other health benefits.
Non-digestible ingredients from certain foods and supplements that feed “good” bacteria and offer a health benefit.
Some prebiotics are forms of dietary fiber.
Nutrient sources for the good bacteria already living in your gut.
Certain prebiotics are selective: they primarily stimulate the growth of specific healthy bacteria.1
Increase the production of Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) that have been linked to health benefits.2
Scientifically shown to improve digestive health, overall wellness, and provide other health benefits, supported by clinical studies.3
Live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.4
Help replenish the community of intestinal microflora which can become unbalanced due to stress, illness, age and other factors.5
Two common probiotic types are Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
Sources include certain fermented foods, yogurt and other dairy products, as well as a broad range of food products. Dietary supplements are also a source of probiotics.
Clinical studies indicate a range of health benefits, dependent on the probiotic strain.6
Probiotics seed gut health
Probiotics are important because they replenish “good” bacteria to your gut. These “good” bacteria help support and balance your overall microbiome. When probiotics and prebiotics are combined, they may act in synergy – the prebiotics feed the live probiotic microbes, allowing them to work more efficiently and effectively.
