Prebiotics v.s. Probiotics
Prebiotics don't get much attention & not many really know what they do. Prebiotics are a special form of non-digestible carbohydrates that feed the probitoics (good bacteria). When prebiotics & probiotics are combined, they work together to create a healthy & happy environment inside your gut while promoting proper digestion. As you may know, your gut affects every part of your body, from your digestion to your immune system, your skin, your brain, hormones & your adrenals. When your gut health is compromised, you are at a much higher risk for a whole host of health issues.
