Press Release: Jarrow Formulas Announces the Release of the New Prebiotics XOS+GOS Chewable

LOS ANGELES – February 22, 2017 - Jarrow Formulas® announces the release of its new chewable Prebiotics XOS+GOS tablets aimed at supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria, specifically Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria.*

A prebiotic is commonly described as a substance that preferentially or selectively feeds friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.*

The specific prebiotics, XOS and GOS, found in Jarrow Prebiotics XOS+GOS have unique properties to aid in multiple areas of digestion.

GOS (galactooligosaccharide):

  • Shown to selectively stimulate the growth of health-promoting probiotic organisms.*

  • May enhance calcium absorption.*

  • A type of prebiotic found in human milk.

  • Fermentation of GOS in the colon results in the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), which have the effect of decreasing the pH of the colon; thus inhibiting the growth of undesirable microorganisms.*

PreticX® XOS (xylooligosaccharide):

  • Shown in clinical studies to significantly increase the proliferation of Bifidobacterium at both low and high levels of ingestion.

  • Promote regularity and colon health

  • Increase the number of Bifidobacteria in the colon

  • Support Bifidobacteria levels during advancing years

"Prebiotics XOS+GOS Chewable Tablets make for a great companion product for your favorite probiotic supplement," says Sky Garmon, Jarrow Formulas Marketing Associate. "As important as it is to provide your system with beneficial bacteria, it is also vital to support those bacteria as they pass through your digestive system and work to support a healthy microflora. Prebiotics can help you get the most out of your probiotics."

Jarrow Formulas products can be found at fine health shops and vitamin stores nationwide. For more information, please visit www.jarrow.com.
