Do you really need probiotics?

I'm sure you've heard me rant and rave about probiotics for so long now. They are something that I see as non-negotiable in my diet and here is exactly why...



LET'S START BY ASKING "WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?"


Probiotics are living microorganisms that when we ingest them can provide health benefits to not only our overall health, but our gut health too.


WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS?


Probiotics are the living bacteria and prebiotics are the foods for the bacteria to live off - basically fibre. So, think of it this way, if your diet isn't containing enough prebiotic foods (such as sweet potato, garlic, onions, leeks etc) then the 'good bacteria' doesn't have anything to live off.
