Prebiotic supplements support intestinal flora and promote probiotic activity.
Prebiotics are particular types of fiber that cannot be digested by humans but can be absorbed by gut bacteria in the intestines. Prebiotics feed and nourish gut microflora and promote the growth of more good bacteria. A balanced microbiome is essential to many health aspects. Healthy gut bacteria influence digestion, calcium absorption, allergy risk, immune defense, blood sugar regulation, metabolism, mood, and cognition.
Prebiotic supplements are formulated to support a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, plenty of water, and rest. Foods high in prebiotic content are asparagus, onions, leeks, Jerusalem artichoke, and raw cacao.
