Prebiotics Help Dysbiosis

Another research study using a gut model system ( in the lab, rather than in people or animals) has shown that administering prebiotic fibre can alter the microbiome, boosting levels of beneficial Bifidobacteria species in autistic and non-autistic samples.

The prebiotic used was galacto-oligosaccharides and there are many foods that naturally contain this particular fibre.  For more advice on which foods help feed your gut microflora, contact The Autism Dietitian at This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it
