What's the difference between a prebiotic & probiotic?
Probiotics are live, beneficial bacteria. Prebiotics are not alive, but indigestible fiber that functions as food to promote the growth of the probiotic bacteria.
Probiotic bacteria serve as the body's inner line of defense, which help your digestion and support the immune system by fighting the "bad" bacteria in the intestine. Prebiotics act as food for probiotic bacteria, which allows them to grow and thrive in the gut.
What is a synbiotic product?
A synbiotic product combines probiotic bacteria with prebiotic fiber (& in the case of PurePharma SB3, vitamin C too), which works in 'synergy'. The good bacteria in PurePharma Synbiotics SB3 is your inner line of defense against germs and pathogens, while 200 mg of vitamin C defends your cells from oxidative stress and inflammation - the perfect synergy!
Can my child take PurePharma Synbiotics SB3 Sachets?
As with any dietary supplement, it is advised to seek the consultation of a medical practitioner before encouraging your child to use PurePharma SB3.
Why do PurePharma SB3 Sachets come in freeze-dried, single serve packs?
Because probiotic bacteria are activated by moisture, PurePharma have created innovative packaging that keeps 99.99% of moisture out. This protects your SB3 until you're ready to consume it.
