Prebiotic+™ features a blend of natural prebiotics to encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). Research suggests that the compounds in Prebiotic+™ can improve gut and overall health.
The benefits may include optimal digestion, increased metabolism, and deeper sleep.†
How it Works:
Pro-biotics are the “good bacteria” that comprise our gut microbiome and are part of a healthy, fully-functioning digestive system.
Pre-biotics are a class of indigestible starchy plant fibers that promote gut and overall health by encouraging the growth of “friendly” gut flora (such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli). Resistant starches “resist” digestion and pass through the digestive system largely intact until they reach the large intestine (the colon).
There, our gut bacteria ferment these prebiotics into short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate, and butyrate. These fatty acids help maintain proper pH in the gut, regulate blood sugar, increase satiety, and discourage the growth of “unfriendly” bacteria.
