Keep Your Gut Happy With Prebiotics
Your digestive system, or gut, is a marvelously intelligent and sensitive fuel system. It’s designed to break down foods and absorb their nutrients so that they can be converted into energy.1
Being the central nutritional hub gives your gut a star role in your total well-being.2 When in balance, your digestive system contributes to your health in several ways. To maintain this balance, it is important to keep “bad” bacteria from multiplying and overwhelming the gastrointestinal tract.3
Prebiotics Nourish the Good
Fiber with prebiotic effects (like the fiber in Benefiber®) feeds and nourishes the good bacteria that exist naturally in your gut.
When you consume fiber, it's fermented in the large intestine by the bacteria that live there. The fermentation produces byproducts (or food) and the environment that the bacteria need in order to proliferate.4
Prebiotics Feed Probiotics
Not only does prebiotic fiber strengthen and significantly increase the good bacteria, it helps suppress the bad bacteria, promoting an optimal environment for good digestive health.5
