Lets Understand What Are Prebiotics and How They Work?

A prebiotic is a special type of soluble fiber that is used mostly by the beneficial good bacteria as a fuel. These good bacteria, in turn, produce certain substances that acidify the colon (a very good thing) and serve as a nutrition source for the colon’s own cells. Isn’t this remarkable? The colon provides a warm, oxygen-free environment for these beneficial bacteria to grow. These bacteria, in turn, manufacture the nutrition source for the colon itself. This is a true symbiotic relationship where both the bacteria and colon depend on each other and promote each others’ health. Of course, the body benefits even more as some, rather remarkable health benefits occur when this system is operating maximally.

So what are these prebiotics?
The ones with the most science behind them are inulin and oligofructose. Inulin, itself, is remarkable in that it has been around in the plant world for a very long time. It has been found in over 36,000 different plants, so it somehow has been a vital food source for plant-eating animals and humans for a very long time. Interestingly, as our food industries and agriculture have developed, the foods in which we get inulin have become limited.

We now find inulin in: wheat, onions, bananas, garlic, leeks, chicory root, Jerusalem artichokes, wild yam, agava, and jicama.

A prebiotic:
is not digested by the small intestine
is used as fuel, or fermented, by some colon bacteria
produces health benefits by objective measurements


So, the proven prebiotics fibers are a relatively new discovery. More than this, they have been found by careful research to provide significant health benefits, not only to the colon but to the body as a whole.

Prebiotin Prebiotic Fiber
Prebiotin prebiotic fiber is a full spectrum dietary supplement that contains oligofructose and inulin. These all-natural, plant-based fibers are independently shown to nourish the beneficial bacteria in the gut. Prebiotin won’t go bad, it will survive the trip from your mouth to your lower gut intact, and it is easily added to a wide range of foods and drinks.

Prebiotin does not contain dangerous or untested chemicals, and it is suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets.

Prebiotin has filed the following structure/function claims with the FDA (Food and Drug Administration):
  • Enhance the immune system
  • Increased calcium absorption and bone density
  • Weight management control
  • Correction of dysbiosis (bad colon bacteria), leaky gut and endotoxemia (toxins in the blood)
