What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when consumed in adequate amounts, can confer health benefits. These microorganisms are commonly bacteria and yeasts and are naturally present in the human gastrointestinal tract, forming our intestinal microbiota.

What are Prebiotics?

Prebiotics are components, present in many foods, but that the human being does not have the capacity to digest and, as a consequence, they reach the large intestine in a practically unaltered form where they will act as a nutrient for the beneficial bacteria we have there, favoring their growth and promoting, therefore, a healthy intestinal microbiota.
