VProbiotic Food Supplement 60 Capsules
If you have been to any health store, natural product shows, or read up on health trends it is easy to see the rapid growth in popularity when it comes to prebiotics and probiotics. Just in 2018, the use of probiotics or prebiotics by adults in the United States was four times higher than in 20012 with nearly 10 million more adults using probiotic or prebiotic supplements. These numbers have only increased in recent years. But before diving into the details, you may want to know, what is the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
Prebiotics and probiotics are actually very different. Prebiotics refer to dietary substances such as fibers, that support the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. These include, but are not limited to, flaxseeds, apples, oats, asparagus, garlic, and bananas. Probiotics, on the other hand, are the actual living microorganisms that are claimed to provide support to the digestive system among other health benefits. Products sold as probiotics include live culture yogurts, fermented foods and beverages, dietary supplements, and even non-oral products like skin creams.
The idea of intentionally consuming bacteria and microorganisms could be strange or off-putting to some, but the benefits of probiotics have become so popular with the general public that this idea has become more and more mainstream. Probiotic bacteria help digest food, destroy disease-causing microorganisms, and even helps to produce vitamins. Plus, many microorganisms contained in probiotic products are the same as or similar to those that naturally live in our bodies to perform these functions.
When researching how to choose a probiotic, be aware that not all probiotics are alike. Probiotics include such a vast range of microorganisms that, even if they are in the same family of bacteria, can perform different functions within the body.
For example, the most common is from the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium families. These two groups include many types of bacteria within their respective families. Say one Lactobacillus bacteria help prevent an illness, that doesn’t necessarily mean that a different Lactobacillus would do the same. People with serious medical problems or with weakened immune systems should also be careful when introducing new bacteria to their systems. In addition to probiotics, there are also some dietary supplements that can help to improve the gut environment, making it more hospitable to good bacteria. Either way, it is always best to consult a physician before introducing a new dietary supplement.
