The human microbiota is the variety of microbes which live in and on our bodies. There are over 10,000 different species and 95% of them can be found in the gastro-intestinal tract. It’s important that the gut microbiota is balanced, diverse and stable, so that it can carry out its many beneficial functions effectively1.

The two that are most critical to digestive health are Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. Clinical research reveals that consuming Biotis™ GOS regularly, significantly increases levels of Bifidobacteria in the gut of healthy adults, which contributes to digestive comfort and is linked to relief of unpleasant GI symptoms1. It’s all thanks to their production of metabolites like short chain fatty acids and antibacterial compounds, which prevent the growth of unhealthy bacteria2.
