Clue Prebiotic Water contains 4 grams of fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS is a prebiotic. Prebiotics are non-digestible plant fibers that are available as food for the beneficial bacteria that already reside in your gut microbiome. FOS stimulates an increase in the number of beneficial bacteria (bifidobacteria and lactobacilli strains).
What's the difference between Prebiotics and Probiotics?
Probiotics are the actual live beneficial bacteria. Probiotics must survive the acidic environment of the mouth, stomach and intestines until they arrive at your gut microbiome. Prebiotics are non-digestable plant-derived fibers. They function as food for the beneficial bacteria that are already in your gut microbiome.
Where do Prebiotics come from?
Prebiotics like FOS are found in a large variety of fruits, vegetables and grains. Clue Prebiotic Water contains 4 grams of fructooligosaccharides in each 16-ounce bottle. To get four grams in your diet you would have to eat the equivalent of 20 onions, 29 bananas or 510 garlic cloves... or drink just one bottle of Clue Prebiotic Water.
