Top 7 Prebiotics – Why You Should Eat Them

Prebiotics are ‘non digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or limited number of bacteria in the colon that can improve the host’.
Prebiotics are only found in plants, mostly vegetables.  These plant fibres are not digested by us.  They make there way through our small intestine to our colon relatively unchanged.
