Prebiotics: everything you need to know

Prebiotics: everything you need to know

Prebiotics are taking a bigger share of the supplementation market every year. They are crucial for a healthy gastrointestinal system and an overall healthy organism.

While prebiotics can be found in foods, such as legumes, oats, bananas, and berries, people often don’t get sufficient amounts of these substances into their system.

Moreover, most people get confused when talking about prebiotics; so, to simplify the matter, you should think of prebiotics as substances (e.g. fiber) that cannot get digested by the human GI system but serve as food for the good bacteria in your gut.

What’s the difference between probiotics and prebiotics

Understandably, people tend to confuse between probiotics and prebiotics.

After all, the difference is one single letter. However, and as we explained in our probiotics article, these are live bacteria that help restore the balance of your gut flora, whereas prebiotics is the food to that bacteria.

Conclusion

Both probiotics and prebiotics are important for a healthy gastrointestinal system, and we should all be modifying our diet to include food elements that contain these compounds.

Nevertheless, if you don’t think you’re getting enough probiotics or prebiotics through your diet, there is always the option of taking dietary supplements, which is a reasonable solution to avoid deficiencies and promote your health.

If you have tried prebiotic supplements before, feel free to let us know about the results you witnessed
