What is a Postbiotic?

In the last decade we have witnessed an exponential increase in the therapeutic use of probiotics and prebiotics for both acute and chronic gastrointestinal pathologies. The use of postbiotics such as butyric acid is a new tool in gastroenterology and nutrition.

Postbiotics represent the probiotic evolution:

Safer; No harmful bacterial components.
Host reproducibility: no need of bacterial growth or colonization.
Efficacy: higher concentration off active components.

The reason probiotic bacteria are important it is because of the work they do: Postbiotics production.

Postbiotics are both natural and backed by scientific research.
