You don't have to live your life with chronic stomach pain and other gastrointestinal issues. Although probiotics are found naturally in fermented foods such as yogurt and kimchi, many people need additional digestive support to achieve optimum gut health.
There's an essential difference between pre- and probiotics:
- Prebiotics: These are high-fiber foods or supplements that feed the microflora that exists in our guts to help improve digestion, mood, and overall gut health.
- Probiotics: These are the actual microorganisms that help the good bacteria in our digestive systems thrive.
Probiotics can help with a variety of conditions, including diarrhea, acute respiratory tract infections, infant colic, and necrotizing enterocolitis. There is also research that shows that a healthy gut bacterium can help support weight loss.
