Advantages of Prebiotics
One of the biggest advantages of prebiotics is that they are highly stable, being unaffected either by temperature or long-term storage.
Prebiotics are also resistant to the body’s enzymes and gastric acids, which means that they are not destroyed, digested, or absorbed as they travel through your digestive system. Prebiotics reach the colon intact and unaltered, where the selective fermentation of good bacteria takes place.
Consequently, they can be added to almost every type of food, drink, or supplement without compromising their effectiveness.
