Prebiotics and Probiotics

Probiotics are live microorganisms endorsed with claims that they offer health benefits when consumed, generally by improving or restoring the gut microbiota. Probiotics are considered generally safe to consume, but may cause bacteria-host interactions and unwanted side effects in rare cases. There is some evidence that probiotics are beneficial for some conditions, but there is little evidence for many of the health benefits claimed for them.

Prebiotics are a sort of fiber that the human body cannot digest. They assist as food for probiotics, which are tiny living microorganisms, including bacteria and yeast. Both prebiotics and probiotics may sustenance helpful bacteria and other organisms in the gut.
