AOR XOS Unflavoured, 180 Lozenges
XOS (pronounced ZOSS) is formulated with the prebiotic xylo-oligosaccharide (XOS), an important nutrient for healthy intestinal gut flora, digestion and overall health. Prebiotics differ from probiotics in the sense that prebiotics are fibres that are not digested by humans. Instead, they serve as an energy source for the bacteria, or probiotics, that live in the digestive tract. Prebiotics are necessary for, and highly effective at, promoting the growth of the gut bacteria necessary for digestion, immunity, inflammation and metabolic function. Fructo-oligosaccharides and inulin are examples of two well-known prebiotics that have been associated with health benefits, but not all prebiotics are the same. Studies show that XOS promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria, especially Bifidobacterium, while other prebiotics are not as selective, and can increase the growth of both beneficial and harmful bacteria.
