Prebiotics are food ingredients that enhance the actions of probiotics in the digestive tract, especially Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus. Inulin (a nondigestible fibre) is a prebiotic that helps promote the growth of these “good” bacteria in the colon. It serves as food for these organisms. The Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium actually digest the inulin for us and then increase as much as 5 to 10 times in volume. These special carbohydrates can be added to everyday food and drink, and because they are ‘non-digestible’, they are not destroyed, digested or absorbed as they travel through your digestive system. Reaching the colon unaltered, prebiotics work naturally in your gut to feed your own good bacteria helping them to grow and multiply. Therefore, prebiotic boosts your good bacteria levels.
Probiotics is a friendly bacteria that has been used safely and effectively for more than 2,000 years, proving their value to human health. Most often, probiotics have been consumed as part of cultured foods, such as acidophilus milk, yogurt, soy tempe. The friendly bacteria in these foods, specifically Bifidobacterium, multiply and establish colonies in the warm, moist environment of the human body by feeding on the prebiotic (oligo) and protein in the digestive tract.
