The Magic of Prebiotic and Probiotic Bacteria

Transforming Your Gut Health and Overall Health

Our gut is home to millions of bacteria that play a crucial role in maintaining our overall health. While some bacteria are harmful, others are beneficial. Prebiotic and probiotic bacteria are two types of beneficial bacteria that can transform our gut health and overall health.

The Science Behind Prebiotics and Probiotics

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres that serve as food for probiotics. They are found naturally in many fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and also help to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can in turn improve digestion and boost our immune system.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that help to balance the gut microbiota by reducing harmful bacteria and increasing the presence of beneficial bacteria when consumed in adequate amounts.  They are found in fermented foods like yoghurt, kefir, and sauerkraut, as well as in supplement form.
