IMO
The intestine of an adult contains approximately 100 trilion bacteria or more than 400 different species which equal to 1-1.5 kg. Healthy microflora can be supported by prebiotics and probiotics. Just like human, friendly bacteria need food to grow. Prebiotics are food for these probiotics. Unlike probiotics, which are living microorganisms, prebiotics are indigestible carbohydrates that selectively stimulate the growth and activity of friendly bacterial in the colon, that can improve the health of the body. The substrates include foods that contain dietary fiber and fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) that nourish beneficial gut microbiota. FOS is the current leader in prebiotics. However, we cannot eat enough of prebiotics in a normal diet to provide a significant prebiotics effect, which is why we will need to take a supplement. From the biotechnological discovery today, fructo- oligosaccharides (IMO) is invented. Bionutra Oligo is the oligosaccharide which extract from chicory.

The nutritional properties of BIONUTRA OLIGO :

1. Unique, soluble dietary fiber
Bionutra Oligo, originally imported from Belgium, Europe is soluble dietary fibers from chicory that pass through the stomach and small intestine without being altered until reaching the large intestine. There the colonic microflora ferment them. Bionutra oligo increases the stool weight that reported to increase the stool frequency and relief of constipation. Their effect in the colon could reduce the risk for disease.

2. Low calorific value (1-1.5 kcal/g)
Bionutra oligo is not digested in the upper intestinal tract. The only small quantity of energy provided by Bionutra oligo is provided by bacterial fermentation in the large intestine. This make Bionutra oligo is used as part of a balanced diet to help achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Besides that, these soluble fibers can be used in a wide variety of foodstuffs aimed at weight control. IMO oligo contributes to reduce the caloric content in foodstuffs by exactly restoring the properties that make food nice to eat.

3. Prebiotic-Bifidus promoter
Bionutra oligo is fermented by the intestinal microflora with formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). These SCFA’s create a low-pH environment in the large intestine, which help to protect against colon cancer and restricts the growth of disease-causing bacteria. Bionutra oligo are highly effective prebiotic ingredients. They are specifically available to friendly bacteria like bifidobacteria. Bifidobacteria helps to improve the constipation and diarrhea, produce vitamins B group, inhibit the growth of potential pathogens and modulate the immune system by increasing immune response in inflammation and reducing immune response in case if allergy. Bionutra oligo is prebiotic ingredients at a daily consumption of 8g/day. The health of the large intestine is generated almost exclusively by oligosaccharide. Oligosaccharides help keep the stomach and bowels.

4. Helps to improve the bio-availability of minerals
Osteoporosis affects a lot of people around the world. This makes the role of calcium, calcium intake and absorption become important. Magnesium and Zinc are also influence skeletal development. Recently, reports indicate that calcium and magnesium are absorbed from the large intestine. Bionutra oligo enhance mineral absorption. Studies confirm a positive effect of oligosaccharide on calcium absorption at a daily consumption 8g/day. Short chain fatty acids, formed upon fermentation of oligosaccharide may directly stimulate calcium absorption in the large intestine.

5. Sugar and fat replacement
Bionutra oligo is not break down into simple sugar (monosaccharides) by normal digestion. Besides that, Bionutra oligo has a very low Glycemic Index (GI). So, it does not elevate blood sugar levels, hence, helping diabetics regulate blood sugar levels. Bionutra oligo also suitable for many people who are on restricted diets. Bionutra oligo contains one-third to one-fourth the food energy of sugar or other carbohydrates and one-sixth to one-ninth the food energy of fat. Bionutra oligo is used as a sugar and fat replacer.

BIOnutra Oligo suitable for everybody, especially people with:
• High blood pressure or high cholesterol • Diabetic • Constipation • Stressful lifestyle • Under antibiotic or radiotherapy • Regular drinker and smoker.

IMO寡糖

健康肠道的前卫军

BIONUTRA寡糖


一位成人的肠胃里大约拥有400种,数目高达100亿个细菌。这相等于1-1.5公斤。人体内存有的健康细菌有赖于乳酸菌(probiotic)和益生元(prebiotic)。益菌跟人类一样都需要食物来生存。而寡糖就是滋养乳酸菌生长的食物。益生元是无法被人体消化,而且能够刺激和协助肠道乳酸菌生长的食物来源。益生元包括不可消化的纤维素和果寡糖。在日常生活中,我们不能只靠正常饮食里来摄取到足够的益生元来发挥它显著的功效,所以我们需要从这类的保健品中摄取。现今的生物科技已研发了寡糖,简称IMO寡糖。Bionutra寡糖是植物菊苣之萃取物。

BIONUTRA寡糖的营养价值:

1. 独特的水溶性纤维
Bionutra寡糖是取自欧洲比利时菊苣的水溶性纤维。它们直接不被分解的通过胃部和小肠直达大肠。在大肠内的微生物将分解代谢它们。Bionutra寡糖有效增加粪便的数量。它有助增加粪便排泄的次数及减轻便秘。这些对肠胃的影响能减低患上疾病的风险。

2. 低卡路里(1-1.5 kcal/gram)
Bionutra寡糖不被前半段的食道所分解。当IMO寡糖在大肠内被分解时,它们只散发微量的能量。这使到它们被列为帮助维持健康体重的均衡食物。此外,这些水溶性纤维可以被用在减肥食品里。Bionutra寡糖能减低食品中的卡路里成份及使到食物更加美味。

3. 增生双叉杆菌
Bionutra寡糖被大肠里的益菌发酵后,将产生短链脂肪酸。这类脂肪酸在大肠营造了弱酸性的环境后,将有助于抵抗大肠癌及抵制病菌的滋长。Bionutra寡糖是很有效的益生元。它们对双叉杆菌特别有益。双叉杆菌有助于改善便秘和腹泻,制造维他命B群,防止害菌的滋长,调整体内的免疫系统和减低过敏反应。我们每天可摄取8克的寡糖。寡糖能非常有效地维持大肠里的健康。而胃部和小肠内的健康则有赖于寡糖的摄取。

4. 增进矿物质的吸收

有许多来自世界各地的人都受到骨骼疏松症的影响。这使到钙质的角色,还有钙质的摄取与吸收受到关注。镁(Magnesium)和锌(Zinc)也一样对骨骼的发育有影响。近来的报告显示,钙和镁亦被肠所吸收的。Bionutra寡糖能加强矿物质的吸收。研究指出每日摄取8克的寡糖对钙质的吸收有很大的帮助。当寡糖在大肠里被益菌发酵后将产生短链脂肪酸。短链脂肪酸将直接提高钙质在大肠内的吸收。

5. 糖和脂肪的替代品

普通的消化过程不能将Bionutra寡糖彻底分解成单糖。此外,Bionutra寡糖不会提升血糖。这能帮助糖尿病患者有效的控制血糖。IMO寡糖也适合许多在控制饮食的人士使用。
Bionutra寡糖只含有糖的四分之一到三分之一的食物能量及脂肪的九分之一到六分之一的食物能量。IMO寡糖成为糖和脂肪的替代品。

BIONUTRA寡糖适合每一个人,特别是
•    血压高或胆固醇过高者
•    糖尿病患者
•    常便秘
•    生活压力重
•    服用抗生素或接受化疗病人
•    常饮酒和抽烟者


Question & Answer 有问必答:


1. Are Bionutra Oligo suitable for diabetics?
    BIONUTRA寡糖适合糖尿病患者服用吗?

Yes. They are suitable for use in diabetic diets. The inability of the human enzyme system to hydrolyse these oligosaccharides, explains why Bionutra oligo increase neither the glucose, nor the insulin level of blood.
IMO寡糖适合用于糖尿病患者的饮食内。寡糖不能被食道里的酵素所分解。因此不会提升血糖和胰岛素。

2. What is the side effects of taking Bionutra Oligo?
    食用BIONUTRA寡糖会有什么副作用吗?

In the correct dosage, prebiotic usually cause very few side effects. Prebiotic is therefore also suitable in the treatment of children in low doses. Oligosaccharide containing foods can be rather gassy, particularly for those unaccustomed to oligosaccharide, and these foods should be consumed in moderation at first. However, given some time, most people can adapt to consuming fairly high levels of Bionutra oligo without side effects.
如果食用的份量正确,益生元只有很微量的副作用。小孩适合食用少量的益生元。寡糖会产生气体,特别是那些不习惯寡糖的人。这些人需要食用少量先来渐渐适应。虽然如此,过一段时间后,大部分的人都能适应及没副作用的食用高份量的寡糖。

3. How to keep the prebiotic in an active condition to keep my gut healthy?
    怎样才能让益生元保持活跃的状态来维持我健康的肠胃?

With Bionutra oligo, we can specifically target those strains of micro-organism that keep the gut healthy. Even better, there is no ‘live’ component – so there is no concern about how to keep the active ingredient, which is usually a sugar derived from plants, alive.
当我们食用Bionutra寡糖,我们能有效的控制肠内的微生物以维持健康的肠胃。此外,寡糖并没有生命,所以不需要去考虑怎样保持寡糖活跃。它只是植物里的萃取物。

4. I am taking probiotic now. Am I still need to take prebiotic?
    目前,我正在服用乳酸菌(probiotic)。那我还需要服用寡糖(prebiotic)吗?

It is better to take probiotic and prebiotic together. The combination of probiotic and prebiotic (Bionutra oligo) is called synbiotic. Prebiotic are the non-digestible food products that stimulate and help growth of probiotic. Prebiotic promotes the proliferation of friendly bacteria in the gut as well as probiotic consumed from external source.
能够同时服用乳酸菌和寡糖当然更好。配合服用乳酸菌和寡糖就是所谓的共生效应(synbiotic)。寡糖是无法被人体消化,而且能够刺激和协助肠道益生菌生长的食物来源。寡糖确保外服的乳酸菌能够延长停在体内的时间和滋生肠道内原有的益菌。

5. Can pregnant women take Bionutra oligo?
    孕妇可以服用寡糖吗?

Yes, they must take more precautions on their gut health. During pregnancy, it is necessary to make sure that BIFIDUS and friendly bacteria are at their fittest condition to fight off pathogens. A healthy pregnant woman will have large numbers of friendly bacteria (especially Lactobacillus acidophilus) in the vagina, which ensures the baby to be born is safe without contamination from harmful pathogen.
可以,而且孕妇有必要服用寡糖。孕妇更需要坚持肠道环保的工作。增殖双叉杆菌和其他益菌是绝对不可缺的工作,因为阴道的卫生是直接和肠道的健康密切相连的。健康的阴道一般会有大量的益菌存在,特别是乳酸菌,尤其是怀孕待产的阶段,更应该大量的提升。这将确保婴儿在产下时不轻易的被害菌所感染。
