Probiotics and Prebiotics

The sufficient presence of probiotics in the intestines is essential for their proper functioning. Probiotics also help prevent inflammatory processes in the intestine. They can keep the intestines healthy by preventing the growth of harmful bacteria, strengthening the intestinal barrier after disruption of disease or medication. Probiotics need prebiotics to live and grow.

Prebiotics support the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, and in addition, certain prebiotics can lower insulin, triglyceride and cholesterol levels in people who deal with obesity.
