Prebiotics vs Probiotics - What You Need To Know?
Probiotics and prebiotics are both beneficial in creating a healthier digestive system. Yet even though they sound similar, the two play different roles in the nutritional value. 
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in certain foods or supplements which help food to be digested. Prebiotics are types of fiber that feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive system which help them grow. The difference between the two is prebiotics feed live bacteria in the gut whereas probiotics are the live bacteria in the gut. 
Probiotics and prebiotics are both complemantary for keeping our gut balanced and healthy. Eating balanced amounts of both probiotics and prebiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria to keep your gut microbiota healthy.  When a food source contains both prebiotics and probiotics, the combination is called a synbiotic.
Many slightly fermented food products contain natural probiotics like kimchi, pickles, yogurt,...When people talk about probiotic supplements, they generally refer to two families of bacteria. Strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are both associated with probiotic formulas. These are the most common strains which can be found in many capsule/tablets or powder probiotic supplements. Unlike regular probiotics, LiveSpo Colon is in liquid form and has 2 strains of Bacillus clausii and Bacillus subtilis.
