Synbiotics - probiotics with prebiotics
Synbiotics are supplements
that contains both prebiotic and probiotic working together to improve
the good bacteria of the human or animal intestine. A
synbiotic product is a functional food.
The main reason for using
synbiotics, rather than just probiotics, is that non-protected probiotics,
without their prebiotic food, do not survive well in the digestive
system. Without the prebiotic food source for the probiotics, they
will have a greater intolerance for oxygen, low stomach pH, and temperature.
In addition, to get the full benefit of probiotic bacteria, right
down to the colon where they can crowd out and replace harmful microbes,
they need their specific food source. A synbiotic product (probiotic
+ prebiotic) is a more sensible choice.
are a lot of E-Bay shop businesses offering cheaper branded synbiotics
than the Chemist chains and Multiples, and many of these merchants have
100% feedback ratings.
