Rapidly Trending Topics, Insights, and Analysis: Postbiotics

Postbiotics are a byproduct of the prebiotic and probiotic digestion process. Enzymes, short-fatty acids and bacterial lysates are some examples of postbiotics.

Demand for this product category is growing mainly because early research has suggested that postbiotics may provide a number of potential health benefits, including:

  • Reducing allergy symptoms
  • Relieving constipation and diarrhea
  • Treating colic symptoms

For example, one popular pack of postbiotics generates around $60K/month on Amazon.
