Probiotics vs. Prebiotics
Even when prebiotics and probiotics supplements have been available on the market for a while, people still have questions about them. We also received tons of emails and phone calls asking about what they are and what's the difference between them.
Well, the concept of prebiotics and probiotics is simple. The important point is how they can affect our body health.
So, let me first discuss the definition of prebiotics and probiotics. the concept of prebiotics was introduced about 20 years ago. Although the scientific community continues to challenge its definition, prebiotics is commonly known as "food ingredient that induces the growth or activity of beneficial microorganisms" according to the National Institute of Health.
Probiotics, on the other hand, are defined as "live microorganisms that are intended to have health benefits" based on the reseach article from National Center of Complementary and Integrative Health in 2016. These good bacteria can lead to fewer gastrointestinal issues such as gas and bloat.
Now you can easily tell the difference between probiotics and prebiotics, right? In short, prebiotics help fuel the production of probiotic, and probiotics take prebiotics as foods in order to maintain your digestive system with a healthy and balanced environment .
It is easy to find probiotic or prebiotic products not only in your nearby drugstores but also on the e-market. But is there any product with both prebiotics and probiotics?
The answer is YES!
