Prebiotics and probiotics work in different ways, but they are both important for maintaining a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut.
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that pass through the digestive system intact and are selectively fermented by beneficial bacteria in the colon. This process of fermentation makes short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are good for your health in many ways, like reducing inflammation, boosting your immune system, and helping to control your appetite. Prebiotics are found in many foods, including onions, garlic, bananas, asparagus, and chicory root.
On the other hand, probiotics are live microorganisms that help your health when you eat enough of them. These beneficial bacteria can help restore the natural balance of gut bacteria, which can be disrupted by factors such as antibiotics, stress, and a poor diet. Probiotics can also help boost immune function, reduce inflammation, and improve digestive health. Probiotics are found in fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi, as well as in supplement form.
Overall, prebiotics and probiotics work together to keep gut bacteria in a healthy balance and improve health as a whole. If you eat a lot of prebiotics and probiotics, you can keep your gut healthy and avoid a lot of health problems.
