Renadyl™, Kibow® Fortis™, Kibow® Flora and Azodyl®) are now being increasingly recognized globally.
But what about PRE-biotics?
To put it simply they’re vital substances that probiotic bacteria need to flourish. As a recently published newspaper article on the subject puts it:
It’s not enough to just get beneficial bacteria into your body. To make sure these good guys stay and thrive, you’ve got to feed them. One of their preferred meals is a type of soluble fiber called fructooligosaccharides (FOS), found in a variety of vegetables, fruits and grains.
Because FOS helps probiotics thrive, this fiber and its relatives have been dubbed prebiotics. It’s a term we’ll be seeing more as scientists unravel the details of how our gut microbiome works.
