What is a prebiotic?
A prebiotic is defined by as ‘a selectively fermented ingredient that results in specific changes, in the composition and/or activity of the gastrointestinal microbiota, thus conferring benefit(s) upon the host’ (Gibson et al. 2010).
Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible fibers that pass undigested through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and stimulate the growth or activity of advantageous bacteria that colonize the large bowel by acting as substrate for them.
What is the difference between a probiotic and a prebiotic?
A probiotic is a preparation of live bacteria as we find in yoghurt, dairy and supplements which can survive in the gut and thereby exert a health benefit. A prebiotic is a special type of dietary fibre which is not digested by the host and therefore reaches the colon where it is selectively utilised by the good bacteria that are naturally present in the colon, thereby improving the ratio of the good bacteria to the bad bacteria which will in turn lead to health benefits.
Can I take prebiotics if I’m already consuming probiotics?
Yes. The benefit of taking prebiotics with probiotics is that you are effectively covering both grounds; replenishing the body's good bacteria, and also feeding good bacteria already present in the gut.
What is the recommended dose?
For digestive and immune health, take 14mL daily. To help soothe minor skin conditions, apply topically as required or as recommended by your healthcare professional. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional. Not suitable for use in children under the age of 12 months, except on health professional advice.
