Addressing Dysbiosis with Prebiotics
Dysbiosis is a term describing a microbial imbalance on or inside the body, most commonly reported as a condition in the gastrointestinal tract.
The gut microbiome — the trillions of bacteria that live within the intestinal tract — plays a critical role in proper immune and metabolic functions as well as meeting the human nutritional needs.
Disruption of the gut microbiome can cause both acute and chronic health consequences. It is reported to be associated with a number of illnesses, such as Inflamatory Bowel Disease (IBD), chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, colitis and cancer.
Inbiose can now efficiently make nature’s own specialized carbohydrates that are high-performance microbiome modulators solving gut dysbiosis.
Production of Beneficial Nature-Identical Specialty Glycans
There is an increasing understanding that specific glycans can improve health and prevent disease. Carbohydrate polymers (oligo- and polyfructans, beta-glucans) can have a beneficial effect on human gut microbiota, and human milk oligosaccharides can help to improve long-term health.
The development of galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and fructooligosaccharide products (FOS) have gained significant momentum in providing a substitute for the natural mammalian milk oligosaccharides present in mothers milk and various soluble and insoluble fiber products have become a mainstay in many food products for infant and adult nutrition alike. However these molecules, often complex mixtures are not necessarily identical to nature’s own solutions, which have been developed and to which our bodies are accustomed for millions of years.
