Are Probiotics Necessary & What Are Prebiotics?

Updated: May 30




PRE-biotics are a specific type of fiber that facilitates the growth and maintenance of specific beneficial bacteria within the intestinal tract, while PRO-biotics are the beneficial bacteria themselves.โฃ

Taking probiotics can help here as well, but you need to choose the right strains and doses for your goals while also ensuring that they colonize by feeding them the fiber and prebiotics they need.โฃ

Many people eliminate fibrous foods from their diet when they suffer from certain intestinal conditions because the fiber causes them distress. If you do that, then you need to ensure that you supplement with pro- and prebiotics to maintain intestinal health. ๐˜๐˜ง ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต, ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ (๐˜ฅ๐˜บ๐˜ด๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ) ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ.โฃ
