This is a first post on new website. This website will focus on antibiotics, probiotics and other biotics.

 

As per wikipedia, there’s several biotics.

  • Antibiotics are the agents that either kill bacteria or inhibit their growth
  • Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and/or activity of bacteria in the digestive system
  • Probiotics consist of a live culture of bacteria that inhibit or interfere with colonization by microbial pathogens
  • Synbiotics refer to nutritional supplements combining probiotics and prebiotics
  • Postbiotics are the probiotic metabolic products that stimulate the growth and/or activity of bacteria in the digestive system
