What is the difference between pre and probiotics
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that are essential in maintaining a healthy digestive system and boosting vitality. They support our immune system making sure we are protected from getting sick! The levels of probiotics in your body are also closely linked to that all important area of gut health.
So wondering where probiotics can be found? Look no further than your fridge or pantry! Probiotics are in everyday foods like yoghurt, aged cheese, sourdough bread and other fermented produce.
Prebiotics on the other hand are carbohydrates our bodies can’t process, that become fuel for probiotics. The more prebiotics your probiotics get, the better your health will be. They are found naturally in foods like onions, legumes, garlic, bananas and asparagus. Prebiotics are also often used as a replacement for fat and sugar in processed foods to increase fibre and probiotic health.
