Probiotics & Prebiotics
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that populate your digestive tract. Good bacteria helps to break down sugars, and as a byproduct produces lactic acid. Lactic acid plays an essential role in a healthy immune system as well as helps to promote the release of digestive enzymes and increases the absorption of many minerals. Probiotics furthermore acidify the colon to as to prohibit the proliferation of ‘bad’ bacteria.
Prebiotics act symbiotically with good bacteria acting as a fertilizer for probiotics and the existing good bacteria. Prebiotics are highly resistant to heat, cold, acid or time.
