The probiotics story is a young one in our country.

What is also not common knowledge is how our gut works and the role probiotics play in ensuring a healthy body and mind. Our gut, contains bacteria that are designed to do activities the body by itself cannot. Hence these good bacteria need to thrive and prosper within our body. The impact of a healthy gut is felt on digestion, immunity, brain function and metabolism.
Our complex and unhealthy diets are not kind to these bacteria, and lacking discipline in food, what we need to replenish and sustain these bacteria, are probiotic supplements.
Simply put : Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. Prebiotics are types of fiber that feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive system.
