Synbiotics (synergistic + biotics) combine pre, pro, and postbiotics. 

The idea is that you can get the benefits for the gut of the fuel that feeds good bacteria (prebiotics), good bacteria themselves, and the organic acids produced by those bacteria that help to feed the cells of the gut wall and other beneficial microbes in the gut. 

Synbiotics have been shown to help increase gut levels of beneficial Bifidobacteria, reduce inflammatory markers and increase total antioxidant capacity. 

Synbiotics might also help (according to the research available) to help support healthy weight maintenance and cardiometabolic health.
