The difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics

Probiotics and prebiotics play different roles for your gut health. Probiotics are often known as beneficial bacteria, while prebiotics are the food for these bacteria. Probiotics are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. They provide numerous health benefits.

Prebiotics come from types of carbohydrates (mostly fibre) that humans can't digest. The beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in your gut eat this fibre.

The gut bacteria, collectively referred to as the gut flora or gut microbiota, perform many important functions in the body so eating balanced amounts of both probiotics and prebiotics helps to make sure that you have the right balance of these bacteria and this should improve your health.

IBS Symptoms, Causes & Relief

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a complex health problem that baffles patients and healthcare providers alike. The most common of all gastrointestinal problems, IBS is far more prevalent among women, and generally occurs between the ages of 25 - 45. ‘IBS’ is more of an umbrella term that describes a set of symptoms rather than an explanation of what’s causing the problem, and this makes it difficult to treat. There is no single known cause and conventional treatments tend to focus on symptom relief.
