What’s the difference? PRO- vs. PRE- Biotics

Sure you’ve heard the terms prebiotics and probiotics, and you’ve probably heard some myths about them too; but today, we are going to resolve the confusion by giving straight facts!


Our bodies are home to an estimated 100 trillion “good” bacteria, many of which reside in our gut; but when you hear the word “bacteria,” most likely, your brain automatically thinks of words like terrible, unpleasant, unwelcome, or even unacceptable. However, bacteria can be beneficial and good for your gut health! Probiotics are live bacteria that are GOOD for your gut! They are naturally occurring in your body and can be supplemented to help counterbalance unwanted bacteria.


Prebiotics are non-digestible fiber nutrients that act like a fertilizer feeding the good probiotic bacteria and providing balance in your gut microbiome. Many prebiotic fibers can be found in the food you already eat, such as: onions, garlic, asparagus, honey, bananas, and one of our favorite Kyäni ingredients, chicory! While you can get prebiotics in the food you eat, most people do not consume enough of these foods to give the good bacteria the nutrition it needs. That’s where prebiotic supplementation comes in!
