Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide is a prebioitc sugar that deliver energy to support the skin's good bacteria.
Prebiotic sugars can only be digested by your good bacteria. This helps to bring the microflora into homeostasis by selectively supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria and encouraging the microbiome to recover at a much faster rate. It does all this while reducing harmful bacteria on the skin.
Strengthen and conditions the epidermis by forming a protective barrier and guarding against environmental stressors and irritation. It also helps stabilize the microbiome.
How Its Used
Prebiotics are used in every nuebiome™ formulation in the form of inulin and alpha-gucan oligosaccharide obtained from wheat and sugar beets.
Prebiotics selectively support the growth of one or a limited number of bacterial species with studies showing that prebiotics enhances the growth of probiotic bacteria that can help with acne, eczema and photoaging.
