Probiotics and Prebiotics
Even though they sound similar, they two play different roles for our health. Probiotics are live bacteria found in food and supplements which provide numerous health benefits. Probiotics will help us to protect us from various harmful bacteria and fungi. On the other side prebiotics are type of fiber comes from carbs which are very hard to digest for humans so the beneficial bacteria present in our gut will consume prebiotics. Legumes, beans, peas, bananas, oats, garlic and onions belong to prebiotics.
