Boost Your Probiotics with Prebiotics

Boost Your Probiotics with Prebiotics

July 2, 2014

Probiotics are living microorganisms that protect the body from harmful bacteria and are extremely useful in improving digestive health. Prebiotics are the nutrients that help the good living bacteria in your intestine. This helps in keeping the good bacteria in optimum condition so that they can be as effective as possible in improving your digestive health.

Prebiotics are actually food particles that humans can’t digest. When these food molecules make it to your intestines, the good bacteria use the prebiotics as food so they can grow, multiply, and push out the harmful bacteria.

The Difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics:

For everyone who is confusing prebiotics with probiotics, here are the major differences between them. Probiotics are living bacteria inside the body, while prebiotics are the nutrients that are required by the bacteria to thrive inside the body. Prebiotics and probiotics need to work together at all times in order to help improve the health of the digestive system. Prebiotics are needed by probiotics in order to survive living in the body and do their job of improving your health.

Finding Prebiotics:

If you are looking for the best way to acquire prebiotics for your body, then you should consume food which is rich in digestive fiber. They are usually found in vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains and fruits. Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet enables you to acquire all the prebiotics that your body requires and will enable the probiotics in the digestive systems to live longer and multiply. If you are looking for food that is rich in prebiotics, some of the best prebiotics include:

  • Fig
  • Kiwi
  • Papaya

ProbioSlim comes pre-loaded with prebiotics to help fuel its probiotics. The fig, kiwi, and papaya extracts in ProbioSlim act as a ready-source of fuel for the Lactospore probiotics. Combining probiotics and prebiotics? That’s just one more example of us refusing to take shortcuts when it comes to your health.
