Health Benefits of Prebiotics
The human gut microbiota is involved in a cascade of activities essential for body health. Their imbalance can lead to significant metabolic abnormalities and a plethora of diseases. Prebiotics have emerged as an effective nonpharmacological approach to re-establish gut symbiosis and promote well being.
Prebiotics are basically nondigestible fiber compounds in foods, and are composed of oligosaccharides. They stimulate the growth of normal gastrointestinal flora, which in turn hinders the growth of abnormal flora and pathogens. Common examples of prebiotics include fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), inulin, arabinogalactan, polydextrose, lactulose and lactitol.
