Prebiotics & Probiotics

Prebiotics are fibres that pass through our digestive tract and help to nourish our gut microbiome. Good sources of prebiotics are onion, garlic, leek, rolled oats, chickpeas, lentils, and unripe bananas.

Probiotics are live microorganisms which can be taken to replenish our gut microbiome. Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kombucha as well as yogurt are good sources of probiotics.

Supplements are also a great option. We stock a number of different supplements which contain strains beneficial for certain conditions. Please speak with Sandra or Bernie about the most suitable probiotic for you.
