Why we need it
Fiber – such as the soluble fiber inulin in our Adult Complete and Fiber supplements – can act as a prebiotic. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria living in our gut, helping them to flourish and multiple within the large intestine.* Bacteria in our gut help promote normal gastrointestinal function, proper hormonal function1, a healthy metabolism, and a healthy immune system.*
