Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide

Alpha-glucan oligosaccharides are prebiotic sugars that deliver energy to support good bacteria.

Natural Science

Prebiotics 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 faster while harmful bacteria are reduced.

Benefits

Strengthen and conditions the epidermis by forming a protective barrier and guarding against environmental stressors and irritation while stabilizing the microbiome.
