Prebiotics & probiotics

What are prebiotics and probiotics? Prebiotics are food components that microbes break down and use as energy while providing beneficial compounds like short-chain fatty acids for our bodies to use. Probiotics are live microorganisms that have been shown to be beneficial to health. They’re found in foods like fermented dairy products as well as dietary supplements.

    The coverage is extensive and the presentation is engaging. However, I find that the visual graphic is a bit too messy and instead of representing the idea in short concise phrases, flow chart and animation or pictures, this video literally type out the script of the narrator directly and linking with few arrows and put them in point form which is not visually pleasing and even traumatic (to me personally).

    One of the things that has been trending regularly in the health industry lately is probiotics. Probiotics are micro organisms that can help heal your body from the inside out. There are many health benefits for men and women, from aiding in proper digestion to helping you lose weight. For women, there are also some unique advantages.

    Is there any existing research on the percentage of bacteria from probiotics that actually survives and eventually becomes a part of the gut microbiome.

    I need to honest! Now I can able to differentiate the probiotics prebiotics and antibiotics thanks for osmosis group

    It appears like Probiotics are only sensible to consume if one is also consuming their constituent prebiotic. Aka. If you don’t provide food for the probiotic bacteria they are just gonna run through your gut, cause why would they stick around if there’s no food?
    So therefore you’d have to consume probiotics permanently in order to have a constant “flow-through” instead of being able to consume for say 30 days until they’d populate in your gut.
    Does this make sense?
