Prebiotics

In recent years, you've likely heard the terms "prebiotics" and "probiotics" countless times. If you’re still not sure what they mean, the main idea is that prebiotics and probiotics can be used to keep the good gut bacteria balanced.

Probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, have been hailed as the ultimate support for the immune and digestive systems, however, probiotics would not be effective without prebiotics. Prebiotics are food ingredients that fuel the probiotics you consume and good bacteria in your gut.
