Do You Need to Take a Prebiotic Supplement?

Find out more about how Prebiotics Nourish good bacteria on our site!

Soluble fiber and non-digestible sugars which are utilized by gut bacteria.

The two most widely accepted prebiotics are FOS (fructooligosaccharides, which includes inulin) and GOS (galactooligosaccharides). If you read the labels on prebiotic products, you’ll see ingredients that end in “saccharides” and “ose,” which means sugar or carbohydrate. You might also see ones that end in “itol,” which are alcohol sugars, I DO NOT recommend those.
