Beta Prebiotics - ß-Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) by Ergomax
Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) are well- documented types of prebiotic fiber. They are considered to be the ultimate prebiotics. GOS are a specific form of prebiotic galactose sugars. These active organic sugars occur naturally in breast milk and belong to the group of 'Human Milk Oligosaccharides' (HMO) sugars. GOS have a complex structure and a wide spectrum of biological effects. CIS are suitable for adults and children.
- Combination with Kefir Probiotics for optimal effect
- Combine with 2'-Fucosyllactose for optimal effect
- Slightly sweet taste: can also be used as a sweetener
- Easy to dissolve and dose due to the fine structure of the powder
- Of natural origin
- Does not contain gluten or soy; GMO-free
- Does not contain artificial additives
Alpha and beta CIS
Alpha and beta GOS differ in origin (beef or legumes) and in the structure of the molecule. Beta-GOS appeared on the market first and is obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis from the lactose of cattle. Alpha-GOS are derived from the galacto-oligosaccharides that also occur naturally in legumes. Due to possible lactose intolerance, there is an increasing demand for alpha-GOS. Ergomax offers both products.
Fermentation of prebiotics in the intestines
Prebiotic fibers are not digestible and therefore have no direct nutritional value. They pass through the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine intact. In the lower part of the small intestine and in the large intestine, the fibers are fermented by various types of bacteria and yeasts. They produce a series of substances with benefits for the host. These include vitamins, endocannabinoids and short chain fatty acids such as butyrate, lactate, acetate and propionate.
The ultimate prebiotic
GOS makes for an excellent prebiotic, in addition to other prebiotics such as fructooligosaccharides (FOS), xylooligosaccharides (XOS), soy oligosaccharides (SOS) and inulin. GOS is extremely well tolerated and can even be used during a low calorie (FODMAP) diet. Prebiotics are also referred to as soluble fiber, while non-soluble fiber (dietary fiber) is known for stimulating bowel movements.
Hydrogen is also produced
In addition to short chain fatty acids, fiber consumption also produces gases including hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Hydrogen, along with oxygen, is deeply intertwined with the emergence of life on Earth and its evolution. The balance between oxygen and hydrogen as an antioxidant, that is, of oxidation and reduction, is essential in living organisms.
Synbiotic combination of pre- and probiotics
Finally, we should point out what is called the synbiotic combination of pre- and probiotics. This product from Ergomax combines very well with Kefir Probiotics and 2'-Fucosyllactose. The effects of the resulting synbiotic combination substantively exceed those of a single intake of prebiotics or probiotics. Combining GOS and fermented kefir capsules is therefore an excellent choice.
