Did you know that most of the symptoms blamed on probiotics (gas, bloating, indigestion) actually come from prebiotics?

And although prebiotics are an important part of any diet, you can’t fit enough into an easy-to-swallow capsule to make a difference. Probiotic supplements don’t have the space to include meaningful amounts of prebiotics—we can’t physically put enough in to actually have any benefit. According to the research, you ideally want around 5g of prebiotics and most capsules only have space for <1g.

So instead of including a worse-than-useless amount of prebiotics in Biotic⁺, we support a food-first approach to prebiotics, based an a varied diet with lots of vegetables.

Finally, prebiotics are often included to help the bacteria reach the desired location in the Gastrointestinal (GI) tract, however, Biotic⁺ contains acid-resistant strains so we do not have this issue.
