So what exactly does a prebiotic do?
Well first off, prebiotics are a form of dietary fiber that supports the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria. Just like humans, your dog/cat’s immune health is directly linked to their digestive health. Prebiotics have been known to improve mineral absorption, regulate bowel functions, support the immune system, and help reduce inflammation. They help prevent that harmful bacteria from taking over your immune health and getting you sick. When prebiotics are ingested in the large intestine, they then become the main source of food for the probiotic. Without prebiotics, your probiotics would not be able to fight for your pet’s health in their system, so prebiotics are an important part of your pet’s overall health and wellness.
