However, this is actually a good thing. Don’t be afraid or grossed out from this. Your body has and needs certain good bacteria in order to keep your body healthy. These good bacteria are called prebiotics and probiotics.
Probiotics are good bacteria that come from fermented foods such as yogurt, milk, and kefir. You may see food labels describe this as: "Food contains active live cultures: Lactobacillus acidophilus," or other strains of bacteria. In simple terms, these probiotics keep your intestinal tract healthy by keeping the bad bacteria in check.
Prebiotics on the other hand are non-digestible substances (soluble fiber (oligosaccharides, inulin, polydextrose) in certain foods which promote the growth of these probiotics and also support calcium absorption. Think of these as being "the probiotic's food." Prebiotics can be consumed from whole grains, dark fruits and vegetables, honey, bananas, and more.
Not having a healthy balance of good bacteria in the intestinal tract may lead to health problems such as diarrhea, decreased immunity, symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and symptoms of lactose intolerance. An imbalance can occur from the likes of stress, bad dieting, and even antibiotics which can kill these good bacteria.
A probiotic supplement on its own may not do the trick either. Your intestinal tract is still going to need prebiotics in order for the probiotics to multiply and grow.
So, make sure to consume a healthy amount of both prebiotics and probiotics in order to keep your digestive system happy.
