Xylose is an adaptogenic and immunomodulatory monosaccharide with antibacterial and antifungal properties. It promotes the growth of healthful flora in your intestines, therefore maximizing nutrient absorption which in turn strengthens your immune system. Xylose has been shown in research studies to be a key contributor to the prevention of cancer in the digestive tract.

XYLOSE AND INTESTINAL DISORDERS
Xylose absorption is decreased in some patients with intestinal disorders, including colitis. A Xylose tolerance test has been developed. In this test, the amount of Xylose that is absorbed in the intestines is determined. This can help diagnose Crohn's Disease and other intestinal conditions. Studies have shown that if the absorption rate of Xylose can be increased, it may reverse colitis and even diabetes.
