Why choose MetaFucose®?

MetaFucose® is a unique formula providing 2'-FL, an oligosaccharide originally found in human breastmilk, and now produced using fermentation. It may help to support a healthy gut barrier, healthy levels of bifidobacteria and a healthy immune system. It is suitable from birth as well as during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and may be used short term or long term.

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 SCFAs (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.

  • 2'-FL is an oligosaccharide (a carbohydrate) made up of fucose, galactose and glucose.
  • 2'-FL is the most common oligosaccharide found in human breast milk.
  • MetaFucose® contains a biologically identical version produced by fermentation.
  • 2'-FL is non-digestible, arrives in the colon intact and functions as a prebiotic.
  • May support a healthy level of bifidobacteria.
  • May help to increase short chain fatty acid levels in the colon - SCFA are the main source of energy for the cells in the colon.
  • May support a healthy gut barrier.
