Who Needs Galactose Oligosaccharides?
1. Introduction to galacto oligosaccharide
Galacto oligosaccharide is a kind of functional oligosaccharide with natural properties. Its molecular structure is generally connected with 1-7 galactosyl groups on galactose or glucose molecules, namely Gal-(Gal)n-Glc/Gal( n is 0-6). It has a variety of properties, such as proliferating the beneficial flora in the intestines (Bifidobacterium etc.), preventing dental caries, maintaining intestinal health, treating constipation, and promoting the absorption of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. It can also reduce serum cholesterol, enhance immunity, resist tumors, lose weight, and prevent intestinal cancer.
2. Who needs to supplement galacto oligosaccharides
1) Pregnant women
During pregnancy, hormone secretion is strong, the enlarged uterus compresses the intestines and affects the peristalsis of the intestines. The entire nervous system will be disordered to varying degrees, which can easily lead to abnormal defecation mechanisms. In addition, modern women generally do not exercise too much and eat too much. Therefore, the intestinal micro-ecological environment is easily imbalanced, and the incidence of constipation is extremely high. Long-term use of prebiotic substances such as galacto oligosaccharides can change the deterioration of the micro-ecological environment in the intestine, proliferate and increase the activity of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, including bifidobacteria, restore the intestinal micro-ecological balance, and improve the symptoms of constipation.
As children grow and develop, their intestinal flora gradually develops into a humanized model. At this time, supplementation with prebiotics such as galacto oligosaccharides can establish beneficial intestinal flora as soon as possible, which is beneficial to enhance the body's immunity.
With the increase of age and changes in living habits and living environment, the beneficial bacteria in the intestines gradually decrease, while various harmful bacteria continue to increase, and harmful substances continue to increase, and the skin will gradually lose its elasticity and luster. Galacto oligosaccharides can rapidly proliferate beneficial intestinal bacteria, inhibit harmful bacteria, and restore the balance of intestinal flora, which can help restore perfect skin.
4) People who uses computer a lot
Groups who have used computers for a long time are prone to overeating, partial eclipse and anorexia in diet, and must supplement nutritious food. Therefore, proper supplementation of prebiotic preparations for this population can consolidate gastrointestinal function.
5) The elderly
The number of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract of the elderly decreases, and the functions of the digestive system and endocrine system are weakened, and a large amount of intestinal garbage is easily formed, which causes serious pollution of the intestinal environment. Elderly people who take proper amount of prebiotics such as galacto oligosaccharide can prevent the occurrence of senile diseases and even cancer.
