If you are familiar with probiotics then it is more likely that somewhere you have read or heard of the word prebiotics. Then it is obvious a question has arisen in your mind that what are prebiotics and what are the differences between probiotics and prebiotics. You may also think that those two things are the same because those two words are very similar, only the difference is a letter. Here are some details which will let you understand both terms & the key differences between them by answering all your questions.

Your Gut Microbiome

If you want to know everything about probiotics & prebiotics then the first thing you should know about is the gut microbiome. Every living human has a whole world inside their gut microbiome, where the digestion process occurs. The main work of your gut microbiome is to break down whatever you eat & then provide you with energy & several vitamins you need in your body. It also helps in your immune system. You may be curious to know how does the gut microbiome do this. Your gut microbiome system is a combination of trillions of diversified active organisms. These organisms may be various kinds of viruses, fungi or various types of living bacteria. And those living things cause your gut microbiome to work.

Those remain living organisms which you know as probiotics take part in various health activities in future days.
