Prebiotics – Healthy Living Association

Definition:

Prebiotics are a form of fiber that feed the good bacteria in your gut (also known as probiotics.)

They’re a bit like fertilizer for these healthy bacteria. Because without the “food” they need, the probiotics in your gut can’t survive!

Good sources of prebiotics include garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, bananas, barley, oats, and apples.

Bottom line:

Prebiotics are like fertilizer for the healthy bacteria in your gut.

Examples of Prebiotics in a sentence:

“Apparently prebiotics are all the rage these days.”

“If you’re taking probiotics, you should make sure you’re getting lots of prebiotics, too.”

“Without prebiotics, the probiotics in your gut will starve to death!”
