Prebiotic supplements can be taken regularly to help increase and drive the growth of good bacteria in your gut.
Due to the low levels of prebiotics in foods, an effective route to achieve the required dose is to fortify frequently consumed foods with prebiotic ingredients and/or use them as supplements.
The unique, insoluble fibres that comprise prebiotic supplements provide the ideal food for beneficial bacteria, such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.
Prebiotic supplements differ from probiotic supplements in that they are highly stable and reach your gut intact, where selective fermentation can take place. In addition, not all prebiotics are the same and some are more selective for good bacteria than others, thereby providing them with unique properties.
Prebiotics have numerous health benefits and it's easy for you to incorporate them into your daily nutritional plan. Since they are heat resistant they are versatile enough for use in a range of applications, including cooking.
