Probiotics.. prebiotics what's the difference

Many studies have shown a link between probiotics and weight loss. 

Probiotics are live micro-organisms considered as good bacteria that can help our body fight diseases and counter bad bacteria.

Some of the main benefits of probiotics are:

  • Improved digestive system
  • stronger immune system
  • reduced acne
  • weight loss and reduced bloating

What's the difference between a probiotic and a prebiotic?

Probiotics and prebiotics are not the same, although they both help to promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the body and aid healthy digestion.

Probiotics - as mentioned above are live microorganisms considered as good bacteria that can help our body fight diseases and counter bad bacteria.

Our probiotic PB8 contains over 100x the good bacteria you will find in yoghurt.

Prebiotics - are non‐living food ingredients that reach the large intestine unaffected by digestion.

Our Fat burning MCT Creamr contains a prebiotic for improved absorbtion and digestion.

Some of the key foods that contain probiotics:

- yoghurt

- aged cheese
