Probiotics have the potential to alleviate various digestive disorders, including diarrhea, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
These findings highlight the importance of incorporating probiotic-rich and prebiotic-containing foods into our diets to support a healthy digestive system and overall wellness.
Some of the major health benefits attributed to probiotics include improvement of gastrointestinal microflora, enhancement of immune system, and improvement of lactose metabolism.
Prebiotics may be used as an alternative to probiotics, or as an additional support for them. It turns out that the development of bio-therapeutic formulas containing both appropriate microbial strains and synergistic prebiotics may lead to the enhancement of the probiotic effect in the small intestine and the colon.
