Billions of bacteria, both good and bad, inhabit your body. To keep levels of the beneficial kind at their best, fill your diet with probiotic-rich food (such as yogurt), and add a daily supplement, such as Vitacost Whole Food Probiotics with Organic Yacon Prebiotics, to your regimen.
They’re known as “good bacteria”—for good reason! Research shows that probiotics offer a wide range of wellness benefits, from supporting healthy digestion to playing a part in optimal immune function.* Supplementing with probiotics is a great way to support healthy levels of these friendly flora, or to help restore numbers if they drop.
Prebiotics are carbohydrates that serve as a food source for probiotics, helping healthy populations to thrive within the digestive tract. Vitacost Whole Food Probiotics with Organic Yacon Prebiotics features a blend of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) prebiotics derived from yacon root.
Yacon (pronounced yah-cone) is a root vegetable similar in appearance to a potato, with a crisp texture like an apple or pear and a sweet, melon-like flavor. From a plant related to the sunflower, yacon thrives in the mountainous regions of South America, where it’s been a dietary staple for centuries. Yacon is known for being low in calories, rich in minerals and a source of inulin—a type of soluble dietary fiber that also functions as a prebiotic.
