prebiotic-vs-probiotic


Prebiotics

  • PREBIOTICS are a special form of dietary fiber that acts as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in your gut.
  • PREBIOTICS are not affected by heat, cold, acid or time.
  • PREBIOTICS can double the growth of good bacteria every 20 minutes.
  • PREBIOTICS provide a wide range of health benefits to the otherwise healthy person. Most of these have been medically proven.
  • PREBIOTICS nourish the good bacteria that everyone already has in their gut.
  • PREBIOTICS may be helpful for several chronic digestive disorders or inflammatory bowel disease.


Probiotics

  • PROBIOTICS are live bacteria in yogurt, dairy products and pills. There are hundreds of types of probiotics.
  • PROBIOTICS must be kept alive. They may be killed by heat, stomach acid or dimply die with time.
  • PROBIOTICS require billions of bacteria to populate the gut and require the nutrition from PREBIOTICS to survive.
  • PROBIOTICS are not as clearly linked to health benefits as PREBIOTICS in healthy individuals.
  • PROBIOTICS must compete with the over 1000 bacteria species already in the gut.
  • PROBIOTIC species have been shown to be helpful for childhood diarrhea, irritable bowel disease and for recurrence of certain bowel infections such as C. difficile.
