MetaFucose® contains 2'-fucosyllactose, an oligosaccharide made up of fucose, galactose and glucose. 2'FL is the most common oligosaccharide found in human milk and MetaFucose® contains a biologically identical version created by fermentation. 2'-FL is important for host-microbiome communication and supports a healthy bifidobacterium population. MetaFucose® also contains l-threonine
2'-fucosyllactose (2’-FL) is an oligosaccharide, or more specifically a trisaccharide, made up of fucose, galactose and glucose. It is the most abundant oligosaccharide present in human breast milk. MetaFucose® contains 2'-FL that has been produced by fermentation.
2'-FL is commonly found in the mucus of the intestine, where it forms part of the body's natural defense system.
2'-FL is non-digestible and arrives in the colon intact, where it functions as a prebiotic, helping to support a healthy level of bifidobacteria.
It may also help to increase the level of SCFA (short chain fatty acids), which are known to have a wide range of benefits including regulation of the immune system, maintenance of the gut barrier, and protection against several diseases.
MetaFucose® is safe for use in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
