The combination of prebiotics and probiotics, also called Synbiotics is often discuss in the health and wellness world. Both of these play an essential role in maintaining a healthy gut, which in turn impacts immune health, as over 70% of our immune system is located at our intestine.
Probiotics are living microorganisms that can be found in fermented foods or taken as a supplement. These microorganisms are often referred to as "good" bacteria because they help to balance the gut microbiome, support nutrient absorption and relieve abdominal discomfort. When the gut microbiome is out of balance, it can lead to a range of health issues, including constipation, recurrent diarrhea, indigestion and excess intestinal gas.
Prebiotics, on the other hand, are a form of fibers that serve as food for the probiotics. Prebiotics are found in vegetables, fruits and whole grains. They help to stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, allowing the probiotics to thrive and do their job.
Probiotics have been shown to improve digestion and immunity system. Taking prebiotics with probiotics may make them more effective as prebiotics help the probiotics survive in your intestines.
So, who should take probiotics and prebiotics?
While everyone can benefit from these supplements, they are especially helpful for those with:
• Poor immune health
• Digestive issues, e.g.: diarrhea, constipation, bloating, excess intestinal gas
• Antibiotic treatment – to restore gut flora
• Skin problems (eczema)
• Overall health and well-being
When choosing a probiotics and prebiotics supplement, it's important to look for a product that contains a variety of different strains of bacteria. It's also important to choose a supplement that is shelf-stable and has been third-party tested for quality and purity.
