MothersBabies Newsletter:
What's all the fuss about Biotics?


To view the newsletter, click here

You’ve probably heard about probiotics, and maybe even prebiotics….but what about synbiotics or postbiotics? 

Yep, there’s more of these ‘biotic’ substances than you might realise, and each variety may offer a different benefit for you and your health!

What’s the one thing all ‘biotics’ have in common? 

They all promote a healthy gut by manipulating and nourishing your gut community. But they do this in their own unique way, and one ‘biotic’ might be more suitable to your needs than another… 

Feel like you need some help wading through the science?
We’ve got you sorted…

In this newsletter you can read:
  • An article by nutritionist Clare Carrick discussing the ins and outs of pre-, pro-, syn- and postbiotics.
  • A research summary by Dr Fathalla Ali examining whether probiotic supplementation during pregnancy is important for labour.
  • Watch a video explaining the difference between pre- and probiotics.
