Matrix MOS is a unique form of 1-3 & 1-6 beta glucans that help stimulate the
immune system of animals and humans. MOS is an insoluble Mannan Oligosaccharide and Beta-glucan
complex that has been extracted from the cell wall of yeast.
Promote the reproduction of beneficial bacterial. Adjust microflora balance
in intestine and stomach. Absorb pathogens and control diseases. Beta-glucan serves an important role
as the most potent known stimulator of the immune system for animals. Beta-glucan creates a gel like
substance that slows the transit of digesta throughout the gut and allowing starches to begin digesting
earlier in the system, in doing so reducing the negative effects of starch in the hind gut,
predominantly due to the spawning of pathogens.
Yeast extracts have been found to bind pathogens. Reasons are because their
mannan oligosaccharide (MOS) content mimics the carbohydrates in the enterocyte membranes. Pathogens
are fooled into binding with MOS instead of the enterocytes, and are subsequently flushed out of the
digestive system. Along with the pathogens go the toxins they would have produced.
MOS can be digested by the enzymes of certain beneficial bacteria. So, in addition to discouraging
pathogenic bacteria, MOS also promotes the growth of beneficial microbes such as lactobacillus.
MOS also stimulates the immune system and encourages the growth of intestinal villi, showing improved
digestion and absorption of nutrients in various animal studies.
