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
