The word “synbiotic” refers to the combination of probiotics and prebiotics and how they interact, in synergy, to improve health. Some recent studies indicate that the combination of specific synbiotics can exert weight loss and anti-inflammatory effects. Perhaps it is because it affects short-chain fatty acid production and improves the metabolic effect of the intestinal microbial. It is also known that when prebiotics are added to probiotics, it is the improved vitality of probiotic. This basically means that if you combine probiotics with prebiotic “food” for these probiotics, it may be more likely to survive and plant their flag in the intestines. In other words, you should always eat prebiotic fiber rich foods along with your probiotics.

Generally speaking, my favorite probiotics are those found in fermented foods. Not only do you get the positive effects of the microbes that accompany the food, but you also get the benefits of the food yourself, including vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients.
