Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are not digested by enzymes and digestive acids, which enhance the growth or activity of beneficial bacteria in the human intestine. They help improve intestinal barrier function, strengthen the immune system, reduce stomach inflammation, increase overall digestive health, minimize the risk of diarrhea, increase calcium absorption, improve bone density, and reduce risk factors. of cardiovascular disease. Mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS), inulin, fructose-oligosaccharides (FOS), oligosaccharides, galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) and polydextrose are various types of prebiotic components beneficial to human and animal health. Prebiotic ingredients treat and prevent a variety of health problems, including antibiotic-related diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, visible bowel syndrome, allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), atopic dermatitis (eczema), colic in babies, and necrotizing enteritis. Low birth weight the terms prebiotics and dietary fiber are used instead for eating mechanisms that are not digested by the gastrointestinal tract.
