There are millions of bacteria living in human digestive system. A healthy digestive system will have a balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract and colon. The good bacteria (probiotics) help in food digestion and nutrient absorption. They also ensure that harmful bacteria and pathogenic microorganisms in your digestive system are not overrun.
Probiotics in our body will decreased due to some factors such as increasing age, selective eating disorder (picky eater), eating out, lack of sleep, work pressure, stress, disease and drugs, and so on. Therefore, they need an optimal intestinal environment and food in order to thrive.
Probiotics are live microorganisms beneficial to humans. Supplemented with Probiotics can improve intestinal beneficial bacteria but effect is not lasting and obvious. This is because probiotics can easily killed by digestive juice, cannot be survive long in the intestines.
Soy oligosaccharide (Prebiotics) is not live bacteria but is the food for live bacteria (probiotics). The importance of Soy Oligosaccharides is to multiply and feed the good bacteria (probiotics). Soy oligosaccharides cannot be digested and destroyed, it will be fermented in the large intestine and provide food to feed intestinal probiotics as well as control the growth of harmful bacteria. It can effectively multiply probiotic up to 40 times, to achieve the maintenance of the healthy intestinal. If the intestine is in good condition, our body can produce good quality blood and cells will be dynamic, thus this is the key to maintain good health.
Studies have shown that Soy Oligosaccharides (Prebiotics):
Improve the immune system
Relieve constipation & diarrhea problems
Balanced digestive and intestinal pH value
Help in inflammatory bowel disease
Prevention of early colon cancer
Improve heart function
Easily destroyed by gastric acid and bile digestion
Improve intestinal flora
Do not multiply intestinal live bacteria
Provide only 1-5 types of live bacteria
Consider as foreign bacteria, may induce intestinal immune response, and excreted out from the body
Foreign bacteria is relatively low survival rate (1 day) , probiotics that taking into the body unable to function effectively and the effect is not significant
Easily affected or damaged by the external factors such as light, heat, added sugar, drugs
Soy oligosaccharides (Prebiotics)
Not easily destroyed by gastric acid and bile digestion
Providing food for the proliferation of intestinal live bacteria
Multiplication of intestinal live bacteria quantities up to 40 times
Can multiply hundreds types of intestinal live bacteria group
Multiply intestinal bacteria that was originally settled in the digestive system, will not end with feces
The survival rate of the live bacteria originally settled in digestive system is relatively high (7-14 days), can be perform well and the effect is significant
Not easily affected or damaged by the external factors
