    Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), are the sugar molecules found in high concentrations in breast milk. HMOs are found exclusively in human breast milk, standing as the third most ample component that is solid with the first two being lactose and fat.

    Not only is human milk touted as exceptionally beneficial for babies, but there are also little known components within, called human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), which aid in surprising ways. These complex carbohydrates—most notably two in particular, fucosyllactose (2’-FL) and lacto-N-neotetraose (LNnT)— present in the breast milk of most nursing mothers, aid in a healthy infant gastrointestinal system by feeding the beneficial bacteria, such as...

    The Science Behind Starch Blockers (White Bean Amylase Inhibitor)

    0 comments
    A group of doctors from The Mayo Clinic conducted a significant study on purified White Kidney Bean extract carb blockers. The doctors investigated whether commercial bean-derived α-amylase inhibitor preparations (in the 1980s) failed to decrease starch digestion in humans because of insufficient anti-amylase activity, destruction by gastrointestinal secretions, or because of decreased activity in the presence of starch. They used a simple partial purification...
