Probiotics vs. Prebiotics

We’ve all been told once in our life to take a probiotic or prebiotic daily. What does it do? Why is it good for us? Can you get probiotics and prebiotics through food? All your questions are answered here!

PROBIOTICS:

Probiotics are transient live bacteria that support and maintain a healthy gut. Probiotics strengthen our immune system, support healthy digestion and elimination, filter toxins out of the body, and regulate enzyme production. Probiotics are found in certain foods or could be consumed as a supplement. 

Food Items Containing Probiotics:

  • Yogurt
  • Kombucha
  • Kefir 
  • Kimchi 
  • Lassi 
  • Miso 
  • Sauerkraut
  • Fermented Beets & Cabbage 
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 
  • Raw Milk
  • Sourdough 
  • Pickles

PREBIOTICS:

Prebiotics are high-fiber foods that increase the growth of good bacteria in our body.  Two types of prebiotics are fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and galactooligosaccharides (GOS). Increasing prebiotics in our diet can help with constipation. Prebiotics should not be taken by those who have IBS, SIBO, or FODMAP intolerances.

Food Items Containing Prebiotics:

  • Asparagus 
  • Beets 
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes 
  • Beans/Legumes
  • Wheat/Barley/Rye
