Mannan Oligosaccharides (MOS) is a complex polysaccharides isolated from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. MOS belongs to probiotics, indigestible polysaccharides that stimulate growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal lumen and optimize immune responses.
MOS, a product derived from the cell wall of the brewer’s yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. MOS is not only a prebiotic but also an immune polysaccharide—a molecule possessing one of the strongest stimulatory effects on mucosal immune responses. Another unique property of MOS includes its inhibitory effects on the attachment of pathogenic bacteria to the intestinal lining, restoration of intestinal villi and stimulation of digestive enzymes.
Potential side effects:
- Infrequent bloating
- Warning: MOS should not be consumed by those with a known allergy to baking or brewer’s yeasts
Potential drug interactions:
- Have not been reported
- MOS should be taken 2-3 hours apart from supplements containing calcium, magnesium, iron and strontium
Contents: 120 VCaps
The starting dose of MOS should be 500 mg 2 times a day. If this dose is tolerated, it can eventually escalate to 1-3000 mg 2 times a day. Those exceeding the recommended doses must do so under the supervision of their physician due to the increased risk of potential side effects.
In this video, Dr. Shikhman explains the difference between GOS and our other prebiotic MOS, what conditions are used for each, and proper dosing.
