Probiotics are the “good bacteria” that live in the gut. Individuals can promote a diverse gut microbiome by consuming probiotics in their diet. Probiotics are widely available in everyday foods. Look for fermented foods: yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, miso, kimchi and more

Prebiotics are the fuel that feeds probiotics. Resistant starches travel through the digestive tract and become fermented by the probiotics. Prebiotic foods include a wide variety of high fiber foods, such as oats, beans, lentils, rice, potatoes. A variety of fruits and vegetables should also be consumed as a source of prebiotics as well as an abundance of other health benefits.
