What are probiotics?

PROBIOTICS are friendly bacteria, enzymes, and yeasts that live in your gut. Fermented foods and beverages are naturally rich in these beneficial microorganisms. As with all foods, the whole form is most efficacious, so naturally fermented foods like jun, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, and yogurt are best.

PREBIOTICS support healthy gut bacteria just like probiotics; however, the prebiotics are actually food for the probiotics.
