Probiotics are bacteria that live in your body naturally and help your intestines break down food. These Probiotics are the same or very similar to the ones that our body makes , so these can be taken to supplement healthy digestion.
Prebiotics are made up of carbohydrates that our body can’t digest. They exist as food for the probiotic bacteria that we are putting into our body. The use of prebiotics and probiotics together is called microbiome therapy. We don’t need to take a prebiotic for probiotics to work, but taking them might make your probiotics more effective.
