Buddy Good and Fight Back Combo
Why we put these 2 products together is simple. They work well together, here is how.
Can you take probiotics and prebiotics together?
After all, prebiotics and probiotics promote a healthier, more efficient gut. But they do work differently to one another.
Not only can you take probiotics and prebiotics at the same time, but many would say that you should take probiotics and prebiotics together!
Probiotic and prebiotic supplements can work extremely well together.
How do prebiotics work?
Prebiotics are water soluble fibers which selectively feed your healthy gut bacteria.
The bacteria in your gut do not consume food the same way you do; rather, they ferment fiber to release nutrients.
Prebiotic fibers are those fibers which pass through the digestive tract relatively untouched. They arrive in the colon more or less intact, where they act as “feed” for your gut bacteria. The best prebiotic fibers are those which selectively feed healthy gut bacteria, promoting their growth and proliferation.
How do probiotics work?
Whereas prebiotics FEED your gut bacteria, probiotics actually ARE gut bacteria.
Specifically, probiotics are bacteria strains which we know to be conducive to a healthy, properly-functioning gut microbiome.
These might be bacteria species endogenous to the gut. By introducing more of these bacteria to the gut, you can help rebalance the microbiome, with the healthiest bacteria rightly present in the largest numbers.
Probiotics might also be species not normally found in high concentrations in the gut, but which compete with harmful bacteria, or which seem to promote the growth of other, healthy bacteria strains. Again, the idea is to tip the balance of bacteria in the gut in favor of the healthiest strains and species.
