What is the difference between probiotic and prebiotic

probiotics and prebiotic is one better than the other?

These two words are always mixed up. Are they the same? Is one better than the other? Should it be better to consume both or just one of them?   

Definitely NOT the same.


What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live microorganisms (good bacteria) that, when administered in adequate amounts, produce a beneficial effect on health.

What are prebiotics?

XAVIAX's functional prebiotic comes from Agave Inulin, which stimulates the growth of good bacteria and allows them to reproduce.


Benefits of prebiotics

Prebiotics are fermented in the colon, resulting in positive effects such as:

  • Helps increase the good bacteria in your digestive system.
  • Helps improve the absorption of minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, and zinc. 
  • Helps prevent diarrhea or constipation, by improving the quality of stool and decreasing the duration of intestinal transit.
  • Helps reduce blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides).

Is it better to consume probiotics or prebiotics?

It is recommended to consume probiotics and prebiotics together (symbiotic) for effective results. 

XAVIAX live probiotics are highly effective because we combine prebiotics, probiotics, and nutrients for effective results.
