These fatty acids are the only fuel supply that feeds the millions of beneficial gut bacteria, plus are the major food source for the cells that make up the intestinal wall. Low levels of prebiotic fibres = low short-chained fatty acids, which leads to sickness, immune suppression, poor health and the growth of abnormal cells within the colon.
