Why “prebiotic”?

Prebiotics and Probiotics seem to be of a similar nature, however, their roles in benefiting your digestive system set the difference between the two.


PROBIOTICS refer to live beneficial bacteria, similar to those found in our intestinal tract. These natural supplements are cultured in vitro by fermentation.

PREBIOTICS are a form of fiber found on certain foods, and constitute the non-digestible part of foods that become fermented during digestion.


Fructo Oligosaccharides (FOS) are a form of prebiotic, and these feed beneficial bacteria colonies in our gut, to aid in the proliferation of “good bacteria” or Health-promoting bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.YACON’s main source of carbohydrates composition is formed by Fructo Oligosaccharides (FOS), which make of this root the MOST NATURAL source of healthy bacteria  that reduces risk and improves the well-being of your digestive system, becoming an extraordinary remedy for most common digestive problems.
