Why both prebiotics & probiotics?

The importance of probiotics

You’ve probably heard of the important role probiotics can play to help restore “good bacteria” and provide a healthy balance within the gut. When formulating our products, we have selected a highly researched and well known probiotic BB536 or Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum BB536, with a long history of worldwide use, since it was first discovered over 50 years ago.

Prebiotics sourced from milk

Unlike Probiotics which help to restore and balance of good bacteria, Prebiotics play the important role of feeding the good bacteria to help promote their growth. When sourcing our prebiotic we have carefully selected Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) which is naturally occurring in milk.

Prebiotics & Probiotics working together

Prebiotics and Probiotics are both important as they work together to support your microbiome. Think of prebiotics as food for the probiotics. As you can see, both Prebiotics and Probiotics have a role to play in supporting the body. This is through building and maintaining a healthy colony of bacteria, which supports the gut and aids digestion.
