The Role of Prebiotics in Colon Cleansing, Manchester, Connecticut

While most of us have probably heard the term ‘probiotics’ bandied about, many may not know that prebiotics are also an important part of colon health. Probiotic-rich foods are a crucial component of gut health and wellness, but prebiotics nourish the probiotics, increasing their efficacy. These natural ingredients are designed to promote the growth of good bacteria, so they can be considered the “breakfast, lunch, and dinner for probiotics”. Want to learn more about this synergistic relationship? Let’s go!

The Prebiotic and Probiotic Relationship

Probiotics are healthy bacteria that live in our digestive system. Our gut can also harbor unhealthy bacteria. The healthy bacteria help the unhealthy bacteria from growing unchecked. Sometimes the system of digestive checks and balances can get out of sync and allows an overload of toxic organisms. This can cause a whole host of illnesses. A colon cleanse can be a useful way to flush an overgrowth of negative bacteria from our digestive systems.

An important part of a successful colon cleanse is restoring the healthy bacteria into your gut afterward, with the help of probiotic foods and supplements. This is where prebiotics come into play! They are a specialized soluble fiber that nourish our good bacteria and allow them to flourish in our colon. For this reason, it’s important to consume prebiotic foods as well as probiotic foods after a colonic.
