Many of us have heard of probiotics, but what about a prebiotic?
There is an important distinction between the two, but they are both important to digestion. A probiotic refers to living bacteria that are beneficial and positively benefit the gut bacteria. You can think of a prebiotic as the food that feeds the probiotics derived from specialized plant fiber. Asparagus, bananas, oats and apples are just a few examples of foods that contain prebiotics.
