There are billions of bacteria and other microorganism residing in the lining of the digestive tract in our body. However for the body to be healthy, there must be a balance between beneficial and harmful microbes. Beneficial bacteria cannot thrive without prebiotics because it is an important source of sustenance. If there is a reduced abundance of health-promoting bacteria, it could cause imbalance in our gut ecosystem, which would affect our health.
Composition of MEGA O
MEGA O contains oligosaccharides found in breast milk (4’ galactosyllactose ) as the main constituent. This product is produced by Yakult Pharmaceutical Industry Co., Ltd., Japan and distributed by us under the brand name “MEGA O”.
The composition of the galacto-oligosaccharides fraction varies in chain length and type of linkage between the monomer units. These galacto-oligosaccharides are produced through the enzymatic conversion of lactose.
The purpose of the prebiotic is to promote the growth of bifido bacteria and lactic acid bacteria, which are the beneficial bacteria in the intestines. Studies with infants and adult have shown that foods or drinks enriched with galato-oligosaccharides result in a significant increase in bifidobacteria.
Improve Bowel Movement (Constipation)
Constipation is a common problem among infants, elderly and pregnant women. In infants, formula milk feeding may be associated with constipation and hard stools.
The prebiotics have to pass through the stomach unscathed. If humans digest prebiotics, then they would not be available for the bacteria. As it passes through the small intestine undigested and are fermented in the colon will stimulate the growth and activity of the bacteria which will lead to health benefits such as increased faecal biomass and consequently increased bowel movement, increased stool weight or frequency of defecation.
Lower Level of Sweetness
MEGA O has a lower level of sweetness as compare to others. It has a refined sweetness without affecting the characteristic aftertaste. The sweetness level is 32 as compared to glucose at level 70 and sucrose at level 100.
