Prebiotics are the fuel probiotics need to grow the bacteria in the gut microbiome, making it as diverse and beneficial as possible.
What is the microbiome and what helps it flourish?
The microbiome is the collection of trillions of microbes living within your GI tract, many of which are beneficial. If you can improve the health of those good microbes, they can in turn improve your own health.
One of the key factors associated with a healthy intestinal microbiome is its diversity. Each species and strain has its own unique set of benefits, so the more types of beneficial bacteria you have, the more benefits you will receive. Therefore, it should be the goal of anyone looking to improve the health of their microbiome to improve its diversity.
Probiotics are one of the most well-known ways to improve the diversity of the microbiome, and the way to improve the effectiveness of probiotics is prebiotics. These bacteria-growing benefits go for both supplemental probiotics and the bacteria already present in the microbiome.
