The Difference between Prebiotics and Probiotics

While prebiotics and probiotics sound similar, these supplements are very different and have different roles in the digestive system (or gut).

Prebiotic fiber is a non-digestible part of foods like bananas, onions and garlic, Jerusalem artichokes, the skin of apples, chicory root, beans, and many others. Prebiotic fiber goes through the small intestine undigested and is fermented when it reaches the large colon.

This fermentation process feeds beneficial bacteria colonies (including probiotic bacteria) and helps to increase the number of desirable bacteria in our digestive systems (also called the gut) that are associated with better health and reduced disease risk.

Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that are naturally created by the process of fermentation in foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, miso soup, kimchi, and others. Some choose to take probiotics in supplement form, although it is important to make sure the bacteria in probiotic supplements are alive. Probiotic bacteria are fragile and can easily be killed by stomach acid, time, and heat.

To make sure you have enough prebiotic fiber in your daily diet, consider adding Prebiotin® Prebiotic Fiber to nourish beneficial bacteria and reduce disease risk.
