Millions of microorganisms, collectively known as the microbiome, play crucial roles within the body to support overall health and wellness. However, they function better when in balance and when this delicate balance is disrupted; the impact on the body can be unpleasant. Diversity is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy microbiome. When we say diversity, we are referring to a broad range of microorganisms, both the species and strains. Modern medicine provides treatments that all serve very unique purposes however, antibiotics, chemotherapy and other medications as well as lifestyle and food choices, can impact greatly on the microbiome leading to impaired digestive performance.
Prebiotics are well known for supporting healthy bacteria growth, like fertiliser for the good bacteria in the gut. Prebiotics are often non-digestible, but fermentable dietary fibre and oligosaccharides. Whilst prebiotics can be useful in supporting the growth of certain bacteria, they offer limited impact on improving microbiome diversity.
Probiotics are live bacteria; sometimes called ‘good’ bacteria. They are often recommended to improve the intestinal environment, but they function first and foremost as seeds to help colonise the GI Tract. Many probiotics have demonstrated outstanding results in scientific research, however, there are challenges that they must overcome within the body (such as competition between different organisms and overall harsh conditions of the GI tract). In cases where the microbiome has become impaired, it’s important to reset the ‘terrain’ so that gut function can be brought into balance.
