    Xylo-oligosaccharide or XOS (z-a:-s) is a prebiotic fiber that promotes bowel regularity and digestive health. XOS is composed of a short chain of carbohydrate units, known as “oligosaccharides,” which are indigestible by humans and, therefore, non-caloric. As a prebiotic, XOS is digested by the microflora found in the intestines where it is highly effective at increasing the growth of beneficial probiotics, especially bifidobacteria, and improving the gut ecosystem to preferentially favor the growth of “good” vs “bad” bacteria. This improvement in gut ecology is beneficial to human health for a number of reasons; it regulates bowel function to prevent and/or relieve occasional constipation and diarrhea, promotes normal metabolic health, improves nutrient absorption and improves altered gut microflora. Furthermore, XOS is considered to be a source of dietary fiber, which also has benefits for cardiovascular, metabolic, digestive and cellular health amongst its role in promoting bowel regularity.
