What is the 2'-FL in MetaFucose®?

2'-FL was originally discovered in human breast milk. It is an oligosaccharide that is important for the health of the baby's gut and their immune system. These specific types of oligosaccharides are known as "human milk oligosaccharides" or "HMOs".

The 2'-FL in MetaFucose® has been produced by fermentation, and is biologically identical to the HMOs found in human milk, and will produce the same benefits as the 2'-FL found in human milk.

 

What does 2'-FL do in the body?

2'-FL is non-digestible and arrives in the colon intact, where it has been clinically shown in both adults and infants to selectively improve the microbiota. 2’-FL encourages the growth of Bifidobacteria and may help to increase the level of SCFA (short chain fatty acids).

Studies suggest that 2'-FL may have a wide range of benefits including support for the immune system and maintenance of the gut barrier.

 

Why is l-threonine included?

L-threonine is an essential amino acid.

It is an essential building block for the production of mucus, part of the body's defence system in the gut.

It is an important glycosylation site.

 

Why choose MetaFucose®?

The 2'-FL in MetaFucose® is a unique and new to the market supplement, and offers great potential to support a healthy microbiome. Easy dosing at 1-2 capsules a day.

 

Who is MetaFucose® suitable for?

MetaFucose® is suitable for practically everyone! As 2'-FL is naturally found in breastmilk, it's no surprise that MetaFucose® is safe from birth. It is also suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It may be used short-term, or long-term, and it may be especially indicated for those with any chronic gut condition.

As MetaFucose® contains ingredients derived from milk, it is not suitable for those with a dairy allergy, or those who are vegan.

Please do note that MetaFucose® is not intended for use if other 2'-FL (2'-fucosyllactose) containing foods (such as infant formula) have been consumed on the same day.

2'-Fucosyllactose (2-fl) - The Crucial Role Of A Natural Trisaccharide Found In Human Milk - In this 1 hour webinar for health professionals, Mieke Van Den Driessche takes a closer look at an underlying genetic polymorphism which may help to explain why some people don’t respond to targeted interventions, and will introduce new ingredient 2’-Fucosyllactose.
