MetaFucose contains 2'-fucosyllactose, also known as 2'-FL, the most common oligosaccharide found in human milk. MetaFucose also contains the amino acid l-threonine.
Contains 2'-fucosyllactose (2'-FL), an oligosaccharide made up of fucose, galactose and glucose
2'-FL is the most common oligosaccharide found in human milk
MetaFucose contains a biologically identical version produced by fermentation
2'-FL is non-digestible and arrives in the colon intact, where it functions as a prebiotic
It may support a healthy level of bifidobacteria
It may help to increase SCFA (short chain fatty acid) levels within the colon
MetaFucose also contains the essential amino acid l-threonine
Supports a healthy gut barrier
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 allegy, 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.

MetaFucose is a new supplement containing 2’-fucosyllactose, which is also known as 2’-FL. MetaFucose also contains the essential amino acid l-threonine.
2’-FL is an oligosaccharide made up of fucose, galactose and glucose. It is the most commonly found oligosaccharide found in human breast milk, and MetaFucose contains a biologically identical version created by fermentation.
2’-FL has been shown to act like a prebiotic within the gut, encouraging the growth of bifidobacteria – the main species of good bacteria within the large intestine.
MetaFucose is very safe to take and is suitable from birth all the way through to the elderly. It is also safe for use in pregnancy and breastfeeding, which is not surprising, as 2’-FL is found in breastmilk.
MetaFucose maybe taken on a short-term or long-term basis, especially as part of a digestive system protocol.
Easy dosing at 1-2 capsules a day. As MetaFucose contains ingredients derived from milk, it is not suitable for those with a dairy allergy, or those who are vegan.
Suitable for adults, children and infants (from birth).
Suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Dosage for infants and children:
1 capsule per day (0-12 years) – capsule can be split and the contents sprinkled into milk/water/onto food. Should not be taken on the same day if other 2’-FL containing foods have been consumed (e.g. infant formula containing 2’-FL).
Caution Not intended for use if other 2'-fucosyllactose-containing foods have been consumed on the same day.
Contains ingredients derived from: Milk
Nutri Advanced supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and healthy lifestyle. Results may vary between individuals.
