Transcript: "What is the difference between a Prebiotic and a probiotic? A Prebiotic is sometimes. A non-digestible component of food, like a fiber that has an impact on the gut microbiota. A Prebiotic can also be other substances that may positively impact the gut microbiome. A probiotic, are the naturally occurring organisms microorganisms in our gut? So including foods that provide some probiotic to the diet like naturally fermented foods, like sauerkraut or kimchi kombucha, also things like aged cheese yogurt when you see the label set that says live cultures and the yogurt, those are examples of a probiotic and the prebiotics service the food for those probiotics. So I hope that helps this is a complicated topic and there's a a lot of research on going about the gut microbiome."
