What Are Probiotics?Β 

Probiotics are foods or supplements that contain live microorganisms intended to maintain or improve the “good” bacteria (normal microflora) in the body. Jun can be described as a probiotic drink because it contains live health-promoting bacteria that are beneficial for our microbiome. (microbiome is the complex makeup of all the bacteria that live on and in us)

What Are Prebiotics?

Prebiotics are foods (typically high-fiber foods) that act as food for human microflora. They act like fertilizers that stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. 🍯 Raw honey is recognized as a prebiotic, since it has oligosaccharides that can promote the growth of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, in addition to antimicrobial components which can act synergistically with the probiotics against certain pathogens. 🦠
