However, with the support of the medical community, this fact is now being emphasized that the gastrointestinal tract contains more than 80% of the antibody producing cells of the body. Consequently, prebiotics market has begun to witness unprecedented demand as consumers are paying more attention to maintain gastrointestinal health. Digestive immunity had long been considered vulnerable in infants and aging people.
