Probiotics and Prebiotics

If someone asked you what the difference between Prebiotics and Probiotics was, would you have any idea? Me neither before I started doing more research about what I put in my body.

Probiotics are the good bacteria and are found in yogurt, cheese, sour cream, or kefir. Probiotics introduce these bacteria into your system and help the general function of your immune system, metabolism, blood, bladder, and bowel. But these bacteria are not self-reliant.

Probiotics need fuel and for that you have Prebiotics. Prebiotics are the little fibers found in specific plants that Probiotics feed off of. Some of the best foods containing Prebiotics to keep your Probiotics well-fed are RAW (because they lose their fiberous make up when cooked) chickory root, garlic, leeks, onions, asparagus, bananas…and Shakeology.

Shakeology is a great way to get your Prebiotics, Probiotics, and other digestive enzymes all in one tasty treat. It is full of Prebiotic plant fiber, probiotic nutrients, and other superfoods to make your gut happy!

You can learn more about the other benefits on my Shakeology Benefits page and my Shakeology Value page.
