What are prebiotic fibers?

Prebiotic fibers are oligosaccharides which are also a component of breast milk. They are not broken down by the digestive enzymes of the upper gastrointestinal system but reach the colon intact. Once in the colon, they promote the growth and prevalence of the beneficial probiotic microflora that fight entero-pathogenic bacteria.

So, prebiotic fibers:

  • Help strengthen the digestive system’s defenses and both children’s and adults’ bodies in general.
  • Promote the absorption of calcium and magnesium from the large intestine.
