This product from Klaire Labs combines two prebiotics for a synergistic effect on gut microbiota. The blend contains galactooligosaccharides and beta-glucan, a prommising prebiotic blend. Galactooligosaccharides is a fibre commonly found in breast milk, and in lower quantities even in early cow's milk, and it is a great prebiotic, selectively feeding good bacteria. Beta-glucan is a polysaccharide with prebiotic activity and a great ability to modulate immune system.
Galactooligosaccharides, like amost fibre types can create gastrointestinal discomfort, such as gas, and abdominal pain. However, ocompared to inulin, the side effects are much lower. A dose of up to 12 gr should be fine, if we increase the dosage progressively. GOS will also stimulate the butyrate producing bacteria, which will produce more short chain fatty acids, and lower the ph of the colon. By lowering the ph we create a more friendly environment for probiotic bacteria.
