The terms ‘Prebiotic’ and ‘Probiotic’ are not immediately self-explanatory, so perhaps starting this blog with a quick definition is a good idea.
So what are probiotics? Probiotics are microorganisms that are live bacteria and yeasts.
You may well have seen them advertised as ‘good bacteria’. That’s because they can help strike a better balance in parts of your body – particularly your gut.
Prebiotics on the other hand are ingredients contained within food that support the development of microorganisms – most notably in the gastrointestinal tract. These support digestion and encourage the bacteria that does the legwork of breaking down what you eat. Prebiotics themselves actually aren’t digestible and will not be broken down by stomach acids and enzymes.
Both are thought to actively aid digestion and have positive effects on other parts of your body such as your metabolism. That’s why, if you suffer from any digestive issues, probiotics can be a great way to start to bring things back to their natural order and help you feel great.
Having a healthy digestive system is not only critical for your day-to-day comfort, but it’s also important when it comes to absorbing all those important vitamins and minerals that your food contains. Detoxification is also important when it comes to your digestive health, allowing you to live your life without worrying about your tummy and what’s going on in there!
