Prebiotics and Probiotics //Absorption Hormone Production Detoxification

Prebiotics are the ingredients of indigestible foods that benefit the host by selectively stimulating the growth  activity of one or a limited number of intestinal bacteria.

Not absorbed or frustrated.

Bananas, garlic, grain, onion, Jerusalem, artichoke tuber, wheat, asparagus, rye, and chicory root. 

Truth be told, they are the nourishment for the cordial microbes. 

They may be added to the diet to provide the situation for compelling microorganisms to develop and get by in the stomach related system. 

Prebiotics – Mechanism of activity 

  • Changes in synthesis and usefulness of the microflora 
  • Selective incitement of gainful microorganisms 
  • Facilitating serious rejection of microorganisms 
  • Immunomodulation and upgrading host guard 
  • Increases the measure of lactic corrosive delivering microorganisms 
  • Increases the measure of Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) 
  • Activates starch receptor resistant cells 

PREBIOTICS : - Examples 



Galactic-, galactosyl lactose-, xylo-, isomaltose - and soya oligosaccharides 

Pyrodextrins (glucose oligosaccharides) 


Breast milk oligosaccharides 


Usual wonderful slight sweet taste 

Add surface to food varieties 

Naturally happens in artichoke, onion, garlic, chicory, leek, and less significantly in oats 

Raffinose and stachynose are major CHO of beans and peas 

Commercially delivered Fructo oligosaccharide (FOS) 

Advantages of Oligosaccharides 

  1. Promote the development of bifido-and lactobacilli 
  2. Lower colon pH 
  3. Discourage development of Clostridia 
  4. Prevent obstruction and the runs 
  5. Have low glycemic record 
  6. Water-soluble and of low consistency 
  7. Do not tie minerals 


  1. Naturally happens in leafy foods 
  2. Longer chain length than FOS 
  3. Provides a fat imitating surface when added to food 
  4. Now accessible in an enhancement
