What are Prebiotics and Probiotics?
Prebiotics-are non-digestible food ingredients that help stimulate the growth of bacteria in the digestive system that help promote good digestive health
Probiotics-are bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines camera. The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria that reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system.
What Does Dr. Oz and Dr. Junger say about Bacteria?
Dr. Alejandro Junger says a healthy person has more bacteria in their gut than cells in their body and that begins with the intestinal flora. Adding supplements and foods that contain healthy bacteria is essential for optimal health of the intestines leading to additional health benefits.
