What are Synbiotics?

If the balance of gut flora is disturbed, then the susceptibility to disease increases. In such situations, boosting the good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract may be helpful. This can be done with the use of Synbiotics.

Synbiotics is a blend of prebiotic and probiotic. It prevents the growth of harmful bacteria and promotes the growth of health-enhancing bacteria.

  • Prebiotics are carbohydrates that nourish and serve as a fertilizer for probiotics or the good bacteria present in the gut. They cannot be digested by the human body.
  • Probiotics are the live bacteria that enhance the gut health and control the growth of harmful bacteria. They boost the immune function and also increase the resistance to infection.

The dietary sources of Synbiotics include mixtures of yogurt and honey, yogurt with oats, and yogurt with chia seed.
