Intake of xylo-oligosaccharides can reduce the formation of toxic metabolites and greatly reduce the burden on the liver to decompose toxins. The xos oligosaccharide can also promote the body to produce a variety of nutrients, including vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, niacin, and folic acid, which is beneficial to the liver and other body organs.
Ingestion of xylooligosaccharides for 2 weeks to 3 months can reduce total serum cholesterol by 20-50dl. It can also increase the ratio of multi-density lipoprotein cholesterol to total cholesterol in women's serum.
The level of human diastolic blood pressure is obviously negatively correlated with the ratio of bifidobacteria in the feces to the total number of bacteria. And the anti-cancer effects of xos oligosaccharide is attributed to the cells, cell wall components, and extracellular secretions of bifidobacteria, which improves the body's immunity.
When xylo-oligosaccharide and calcium are ingested at the same time, it will not affect the body's absorption of calcium, but can promote the effect. The test results show that the body's retention of Ca after 7 days of arbitrary intake of 2% xylo-oligosaccharide aqueous solution, the rate has increased by 21%.
Xylo-oligosaccharide is a kind of functional oligosaccharide that widely exists in nature, with no toxic side effects and stable chemical properties. In addition to the general properties of oligosaccharides, the xylooligosaccharides also have unique physical and chemical properties and biological activities. While most people are concerned about its effectiveness, more attention should be paid to its safety.
Saigo Nutri has already used our xylooligosaccharides as test samples to conduct genetic toxicology test analysis, and preliminarily evaluate the mutagenic and carcinogenic effects of xylooligosaccharides products. We have in total conducted the following 4 tests:
- Ames test
- Mouse sperm deformity test
- Chromosomal abnormality test in mouse testis
- Mouse bone marrow polychromatic erythrocyte micronucleus test
All four genetic toxicity tests were negative, that is, the product has no carcinogenic and teratogenic effects on animals. The multiple safety data we obtained in the above tests provide a safe basis for the use of xylooligosaccharides supplement.
Experiments have proved that xylooligosaccharides have no side effects. A small number of patients who suffer from constipation due to lack of intestinal motility and intestinal motility are often accompanied by mild abdominal pain and diarrhea when they first take xylooligosaccharide supplement. This is an increase in intestinal motility to improve intestinal motility. If you continue to take it, the abdominal pain will disappear naturally, constipation will be improved, and the symptoms of abdominal pain will no longer occur.
There is something called xylan in the cell wall of plants, which is extracted by high-pressure cooking or steam treatment, and then degraded with xylanase extracted from bacteria to obtain xylan oligosaccharides. Many plant raw materials can be used to produce xylooligosaccharide supplement, such as corn cobs, bagasse, cottonseed husks, wheat bran, wheat stalks, straw, rice husks, bark, etc., which can be said to be the treasure of waste.
At present, xylooligosaccharide supplement is a new food material approved by the state, and it can be used except infant food, and the daily consumption is no more than 3 grams. However, xos oligosaccharide used in food must be made of wheat straw and corn cobs.
