What Is A Prebiotic?

Have you heard of prebiotics? No, I didn’t say a probiotic. A PREbiotic. If you are like me, you may be just learning about prebiotics and their benefits to overall health, but they have been around for a long time. In fact, they are in foods such as onions and asparagus, so they have been a LONG time. Prebiotics work with the probiotics (they are actually the food for the probiotic bacteria) so prebiotics and probiotics work together to help promote overall health.

Prebiotics don’t contain bacteria, like a probiotics do, they are fuel to help bacteria grow. Prebiotics are a type of dietary fiber and act as food for human microflora.

So why take a prebiotic?

An unbalanced gut microbiome can lead to bloating, digestive discomfort, and irregular bowel movements. Prebiotics improves gut microbiome health, and when you are feeling healthy, you are happier, right? So, I would say that prebiotics also promote overall happiness 🙂

I have been taking Country Life Gut Connection Energy Balance. I like it because it not only improves gut microbiome health (meaning it helps keep my happy digestive tract on track) but it also helps support clear energy. And who doesn’t need a bit more energy?
