When most people think of health supplements for the gut, they think of probiotics. Probiotics are packed with beneficial “gut-friendly” bacteria — live organisms that populate the flora of the digestive tract. Chances are you’ve never stopped to ponder what feeds those microorganisms. Well, the answer is prebiotics. Prebiotics are a form of non-digestible fiber. Foods like under-ripe bananas and raw garlic are good sources of prebiotics. If the thought of eating a bunch of green bananas or raw garlic does not appeal to you, fortunately there are prebiotic supplements that contain prebiotic fibers that promote healthy digestion and have all sorts of wellness implications. Pairing a prebiotic with a probiotic will maximize the health benefits of the probiotic. These benefits range from improved skin to higher immunity to better mood. Prebiotics are also known as probiotic supplements.
