Balance is beautiful! Billions of bacteria, both good and bad, inhabit your body.

What are probiotics?
They’re known as “good bacteria”—for good reason! Research shows that probiotics offer a wide range of wellness benefits, from supporting healthy digestion to playing a part in optimal immune function.* Supplementing with probiotics is a great way to support healthy levels of these friendly flora, or to help restore numbers if they drop.
What are prebiotics?
Prebiotics are carbohydrates that serve as a food source for probiotics, helping healthy populations to thrive within the digestive tract. Vitacost® Whole Food Probiotics with Organic Yacon Prebiotics features a blend of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) prebiotics derived from yacon root.
What is yacon?
Yacon (pronounced yah-cone) is a root vegetable similar in appearance to a potato, with a crisp texture like an apple or pear and a sweet, melon-like flavor. From a plant related to the sunflower, yacon thrives in the mountainous regions of South America, where it’s been a dietary staple for centuries. Yacon is known for being low in calories, rich in minerals and a source of inulin—a type of soluble dietary fiber that also functions as a prebiotic.
