Fibre

Post by Dreamweaver » 22 Apr 2018, 19:01

Fibre in foods is good, some foods more than others. They are prebiotic While probiotics are active bacteria, prebiotics are not living organisms at all. Rather, prebiotics are carbohydrate plant fibers which act as “fuel” for probiotics. Unlike probiotics, which are alive and relatively fragile, prebiotics cannot die – they are impervious to stomach acid, heat, and cold. And while probiotics are meant to be digested, prebiotics are indigestible material that can remain in the body much longer.

Because prebiotics cannot be absorbed or broken down by the body, they’re free to perform their most valuable function: to nourish probiotics. Much like lawn fertilizer helps grass grow, prebiotics stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria in the colon and intestines. This process can produce positive results, helping to improve the lives of people in many ways.
