FOS Can Regulate Intestinal Flora
Ⅰ.The introduction of fructooligosaccharide
Fructo oligosaccharides (FOS) is a natural active substance. It is a special component of soluble dietary fiber, a carbohydrate that cannot be digested by intestinal digestive enzymes.
Ⅱ. The function of fructooligosaccharide in regulating intestinal flora
FOS (fructooligosaccharides) plays an important role in regulating the intestinal flora, strengthening the immune system, and promoting mineral absorption. Next, let's understand the first important function of FOS: regulating the intestinal flora.
1. Promote the growth of beneficial bacteria
Intake of FOS (fructooligosaccharides) can significantly increase the number of bifidobacteria, and as the intake of fructooligosaccharides increases, bifidobacteria will also increase significantly.
2. Inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria
The mechanism of oligofructose fos inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria is: oligofructose fos can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria, and then beneficial bacteria can produce short-chain fatty acids, and short-chain fatty acids can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestine.
3. Improve intestinal microecology
Intestinal microbes account for 78% of the total microbial population of the human body, so it is called the largest microecosystem in the human body. And FOS (fructooligosaccharides) has a very significant "two-way" regulation of intestinal flora.
