Alpha Prebiotics - Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) by Ergomax

Galacto-Oligosaccharides (GOS) are well-documented types of prebiotic fiber. GOS are considered the ultimate prebiotics: a specific form of prebiotic galactose sugars. These active, organic sugars occur naturally in breast milk and belong to the group of 'Human Milk Oligosaccharide' (HMO) sugars. They have a complex structure and a wide spectrum of biological effects. GOS are suitable for adults and children.


  • Excellent to combine with Kefir Probiotics for optimal effect
  • Slightly sweet taste, can be used as a sweetener
  • Easy to dissolve and dose due to the fine structure
  • Synergistic effect with probiotics
  • 100% ecological packaging
  • Of natural origin
  • Does not contain gluten or soy; GMO-free
  • Does not contain artificial additives

Alpha and beta GOS

Alpha and beta GOS differ in origin (legumes or beef) 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 would like to point out what is called the synbiotic combination of pre- and probiotics. The effects of a synbiotic combination exceed those of a single intake of prebiotics or probiotics. So taking a combination of GOS and fermented kefir capsules is a powerful choice. This Ergomax product combines very well with Kefir Probiotics and 2'-Fucosyllactose, for instance.

  1. It seems better than the other prebiotic
    Overall rating
    I've tried fos, inulin, agave, mushrooms, chicory root, all of these ad prebiotic. But they always gave me reflux, maybe because my candida fed on them. Not with gos!!! I'm up to two teaspoons a day with slight gas, absolutely no discomfort of any kind, and i think they are making me "go" regularly. I like them better than all of the other prebiotic
