How are prebiotics such as GOS utilised by the body?

Prebiotics such as GOS are not digested in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and can reach the large intestine where they positively stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria.

 

In the large intestine, GOS may enhance the growth of bifidobacteria as well as other bacteria that can produce short-chain fatty acids which stimulate immune health and promote digestive health and gut comfort. GOS has also been shown to improve the absorption of minerals in the intestine.

The SureStart™ GOS Portfolio

Our SureStart™ Galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS) is entirely derived from fresh cows’ milk – manufactured from lactose using an enzymatic reaction. The processing techniques ensure high nutritional and functional properties, helping to support immunity and digestive health through the growth of health-promoting intestinal bacteria.
