Yeast beta-glucan

Yeast β-glucan is a scientifically proven biological defense modifier (BDM) that nutritionally potentiates and modulates the immune response. As a supplement, after swallowing orally, Beta glucan is ingested primarily through macrophage and dendritic immune cells, to nutritionally and safely yield, through immune response potentiation and modulation, in many instances various therapeutic healing effects are generated by the immune cells. Yeast beta glucan have been investigated for these immune enhancing properties, particularly their ability to activate macrophage immune cells and NK-Cells, plus in turn, the T-Cells, and B-Cells including selected cytokines and complement cells.

Xylo-oligosaccharides

Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) are polymers of the sugar xylose. XOS is produced from the xylan fraction in plant fiber. Their C5 structure is fundamentally different from other prebiotics, which are based upon C6 sugars. Xylo-oligosaccharides have been commercially available since the 1980s. Xylo-oligosaccharides act as a prebiotic, selectively feeding beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli within the digestive tract. A large number of clinical trials have been conducted with XOS, demonstrating a variety of health benefits, including improvements in blood sugars and lipids, digestive health benefits, laxation, and beneficial changes to immune markers.

Melatonin

Melatonin is an indoleamine neurohormone whose levels vary in a daily cycle, thereby allowing the entrainment of the circadian rhythms of several biological functions in animals, plants, and microbes. Many biological effects of melatonin are transduced through melatonin receptors, including the MT1, MT2, and MT3 subtypes. Melatonin also acts as a powerful antioxidant that protects lipids, proteins, and DNA against oxidative damage. Glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutases, and catalase are upregulated by melatonin, and melatonin scavenges free radicals as a terminal antioxidant.

Fructo-oligosaccharides

Fructo-oligosaccharides

Fructo-oligosaccharides are produced from sucrose, through transformation by fructosyltransferases and refinement. It is a probiotic proliferating agent which is not digested and absorbed by the human body and reaches the large intestine directly. Fructo-oligosaccharide has been proved to be the only natural ingredients with both super bifidus factor and water-soluble dietary fiber. It has been approved by governments of more than 200 countries and regions worldwide.

transformation, refining and concentration. It is a widely used functional oligosaccharide because it
can promote the proliferation of Bifidobacterium in human body and it is a water-soluble dietary
fiber with the low calorific value and caries prevention function.
