XOS+GOS Prebiotics 90 chews - xylo--oligosaccharides and galacto-oligosaccharides, promotes growth of beneficial bacteria | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Prebiotics XOS+GOS contains prebiotic fibers that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria (Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus) and supports intestinal and immune function.
Beneficial bacteria can be depleted by low-fiber diets, high meat diets, antibiotic use, travel and stress. Jarrow Formulas' Prebiotics XOS+GOS primarily supports the growth of Bifidobacteria but also Lactobacilli for intestinal and immune function.
PreticX™ (Xylo-oligosaccharides) has been shown in clinical studies to promote the growth of Bifidobacteria.
GOS (Galacto-oligosaccharides) are the principal type of prebiotics found in human milk.

Beneficial bacteria can be depleted by low-fiber diets, high meat diets, antibiotic use, travel and stress. One approach for mitigating this problem is supplementation with prebiotics. Most prebiotics are natural fibers (fiber-like polysaccharides) that enhance the growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria and occur in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and cereals. These fibers promote the growth and activity of probiotic bacteria, such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, that produce short-chain fatty acids, promote the absorption of nutrients, and play many other roles in the gut.
Jarrow Formulas’ Prebiotics XOS+GOS supports the growth of both Lactobacilli and Bifidobactera.
PreticX (≥70% xylooligosaccharide) has been shown in clinical studies to promote the growth of Bifidobacteria.
GOS (galactooligosaccharide) is the type of prebiotic found in human milk and some legumes that not only promotes Bifidobacteria, but also the absorption of some minerals.
Prebiotics XOS+GOS provides intestinal and immune health benefits by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
What Are Prebiotics?
A prebiotic is generally defined as “a selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confer benefits on host well-being and health.”
In more colloquial terms, a prebiotic is commonly described as a substance that preferentially or selectively feeds friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Any dietary component that reaches the colon mostly intact is a potential prebiotic. However, three criteria are required for a dietary component to have the characteristics stated in the prebiotic definition.
• Resists host digestion, absorption, and adsorption processes
• Is fermented by the microflora colonizing the gastrointestinal system
• Selectively stimulates the growth and/or activity of a limited number of bacteria within the gastrointestinal system, particularly those associated with health and well-being
Benefits of Galactooligosaccharides (GOS)
Various studies have shown that GOS selectively stimulate the growth of health-promoting probiotic organisms. With regard to early life, research has demonstrated that the intestinal flora of breast-fed infants differs from that of bottle-fed infants. Breast-fed infants have a higher number of Bifidobacteria, which has been attributed to bifidogenic factors such as GOS.
Bifidobacteria are particularly important for infants since they are the dominant probiotic bacteria in infants, are associated with gastrointestinal health and may be important primers for the immune system.
Later in life, GOS supports a variety of other benefits, some perhaps unexpected. For instance, the natural GOS extracted from peas has been clinically tested for its effect of promoting satiation.
Fermentation of GOS in the colon results in the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), such as propionate, acetate, lactate and butyrate, which are considered to be beneficial to the health of the host. SCFA are a source of nutrients for the intestinal cells and other tissues. The SCFA have the effect of decreasing the pH of the colon; this is thought to microorganisms.
As humans age, the relative abundance of Bifidobacteria species decreases. Older consumers may benefit significantly in that as GOS supports the growth of Bifidobacteria, promotes regularity and may stimulate calcium absorption.
PreticX® (≥70% xylooligosaccharide) adds another level of prebiotic support for probiotic enhancement in the gut. PreticX® has been shown in clinical studies to significantly increase the proliferation of Bifidobacterium at both low and high levels of ingestion.
Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) comprise a group of polysaccharides called xylans. Xylans are common constituents of plant cell walls.
PreticX® XOS supplementation may:
• Promote regularity and colon health
• Increase the number of Bifidobacteria in the colon
• Support Bifidobacteria levels during advancing years
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.
