Prebiotics are important non-digestible dietary fibers that support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Prebiotics are not living bacteria like probiotics but rather nourish our intestinal flora or microbiome, which consists of microorganisms such as bacteria and yeasts. With the right nutrition, we can have a positive influence on our microflora. In our range, you will find dietary supplements with prebiotics. Prebiotics are available in powder form, liquid form, and capsules.
Prebiotics is a collective term for non-digestible dietary fibers that do not have direct nutritional value themselves. Prebiotics can be found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, and grain products, among other sources. If you do not consume enough dietary fibers, you can supplement your intake with prebiotic dietary supplements. Prebiotics stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, particularly those bacteria that ferment these fibers and use them as a source of nourishment. As a result, prebiotics support a healthy gut flora and aid in the restoration of the gut microbiota.
Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Synbiotics
Dietary fibers and substances with prebiotic functions pass through the small intestine without being digested and are fermented by the gut microbiota in the large intestine. Common prebiotics include inulin, fructo-oligosaccharides, resistant starch, pectins from vegetables and fruits, glucans from grain products, and beta-glucans from mushrooms. Prebiotics can be effectively combined with probiotics, not only through the right diet but also by taking prebiotic and probiotic supplements, such as Ergomax's own combination package. There are also synbiotics, which are products that contain both prebiotics and probiotics. An example of this is Terraflora™ by Environmedica.
A Healthy Gut Flora
We are increasingly learning about the role of the gut microbiota in our overall health. A balanced, diverse, and healthy gut microbiome forms a crucial foundation for our vitality. A varied, primarily plant-based diet with the right fibers and a healthy lifestyle helps maintain optimal gut flora. In addition to healthy nutrition, you can choose to supplement your gut flora with a prebiotic supplement. Ergomax offers several unique products in its shop, such as Resistant Starch Prebiotics by Natural Stacks, ISOThrive, and 2'-Fucosyllactose by Ergomax.
