Which is the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?

According to the Gastroenterology World Organization, the probiotics are live microorganisms that, when ingested in the adequate quantities, provide health benefits to who consumes them. Those are bacteria or yeasts present in foods, medicines and dietary supplements.

The probiotics that are more often used are the ones of the Lactobacillus y Bifidobacterium specie. The term “probiotic” refers to those live microorganisms that have demonstrated to be beneficial for health according to studies performed in humans.

The prebiotics are compounds that the organism cannot digest but that have a physiologic effect on the bowel by stimulating, in a selective way, the growth of the beneficial bacteria. Those are a kind of carbohydrates present in certain foods that, although our digestive system is not capable of digest, are fermented on the intestinal tract and used as “food” by some beneficial bowel bacteria. The prebiotics that have been subject of more research are inulin, agave fructans like Fiber Primeâ and the fructooligosaccharides also known as FOS, that appear in a natural way in certain foods or may be added by the manufacturer in order to provide concrete benefits to the foods.
