GOS – Galacto-oligosaccharides 60 capsules (500mg/capsule)

30.00

The use of Galacto-oligosaccharides known as GOS, as a prebiotic, has demonstrated a significant impact on the body’s intestinal flora. GOS are oligosaccharides formed via β-galactosidase transgalactosylation1, that are indigestible food components which travel through the upper gastrointestinal tract without breaking down and reach the colon intact, where they ferment, producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that contribute to the modulation of the intestinal microbiota. GOS has shown positive effects on self-reported high trait anxiety, attentional bias, and bacterial abundance. This suggests that including a GOS prebiotic in the diet could potentially enhance indicators associated with pre-clinical anxiety2.
