Just cleared out my medicine cabinet and happened upon a bottle of 'Prebiotic nourishment for digestive flora and colon health' because (don't laugh) I once read on MN that this would be good for me, but I now can't remember the detauls.
Can anyone tell me if I should take this powder and how, with probiotics? I am breastfeeding btw.
Would it also be beneficial for DH amd DD (2.5 yrs)?
Also, my brother has colitis and has a flare-up atm. Woudl taking pro and pre biotics be beneficial for him?
Prebiotics help create the conditions that cause the bacteria to flourish. Both are good. And excellent for colitis. And very good for you if breastfeeding but I think they have sell-by dates so don't take them if they are too manky.
