Prebiotics & Probiotics

Prebiotics are non-digestible compounds that nourish beneficial gut bacteria, fostering improved digestion, immune function, and metabolic health. Probiotics, live microorganisms, contribute to a balanced gut microbiota, supporting digestion, immune response, and potentially mental health. Both prebiotics and probiotics have shown promise in managing conditions like IBS, diarrhea, and skin issues. Emerging research suggests a possible connection between gut health and mental health in managing mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. While research suggests their positive impact on overall health, the field is evolving, and further investigation is needed to determine optimal strains and dosages for specific health concerns.
