Knowing Your Probiotics and Prebiotics
Have you heard people talking about Gut Health?
Gut health is a real thing that can become imbalanced, which could be because you lack good bacteria or have an overgrowth of bad bacteria. Side effects, such as gas, constipation, diarrhea, and bloating happen. Balancing out your gut bacteria does start with probiotics and prebiotics.
Probiotics are the good bacteria, while prebiotics is the good bacteria promoters. They work in collaboration with each other, so your gut does need both of them to keep your gastrointestinal tract healthy.
Foods can help with this.
Probiotics are the live microorganisms that can help prevent and treat some illnesses.
