Yayın Tarihi | 28 May 2024, Tuesday

Recently, the importance of gut health on overall health is being increasingly understood. One of the most effective ways to support gut health is to use dietary supplements such as prebiotics and probiotics. Prebiotics are components that support the development of beneficial bacteria in the gut. In particular, prebiotics such as lactulose and inulin help the proliferation of beneficial Bifidobacterium bacteria in the gut. Probiotics are also very important for gut health, and bacteria such as Bifidobacterium are quite effective in this regard. In addition, components such as D-allulose and β-glucan also improve gut health.


New Research Shows Health Benefits of Whey Drinks

In a study, the effect of oat β-glucan, D-allulose, and Bifidobacterium animalis in whey drinks under cold storage conditions was examined. In this study, it was seen that D-allulose increased the viability of B. animalis and therefore could be beneficial to gut health. In addition, experiments on rats showed that these components improved gut health.


As a result of these studies, it was understood that whey drinks containing β-glucan, D-allulose, and Bifidobacterium have many health benefits. It was found that these drinks have positive effects such as lowering cholesterol levels, improving blood fats, and helping with weight management. These findings show that such functional drinks need to be further researched and their health benefits need to be confirmed.

In conclusion, for those who want to support gut health, functional whey drinks enriched with prebiotics and probiotics may be an ideal option. Such drinks have the potential to improve overall health and reduce disease risks.
