  1. Dr Tom mentions the importance of not having fructooligosaccharides prebiotics in the probiotic (which the Gut Check doesn’t have) since they may feed bad bacteria yet in the DeFranco clean greens product there is fructooligosaccharides prebiotics. I am confused as to why the Clean Greens product has the prebiotics in it? If I take the Gut Check probiotic when I take Clean Greens like Dr Tom mentions, wouldn’t this be the same thing as have prebiotics with the probiotic? Thanks
