Comparison of the function of chitosan oligosaccharides and galacto oligosaccharide

Both chitosan and galactose are functional oligosaccharides. where chitosan oligosaccharides are oligosaccharides linked by 2 to 10 glucosamines throughβ-1,4 glycoside bonds. Galactose oligosaccharides are obtained from lactose by the action of β- galactosidase and are oligosaccharides that connect galactose molecules on the galactosyl in lactose molecules. The two oligosaccharides have a lot of similarities in the application function, but the mechanism of action is slightly different. In addition, chitosan oligosaccharides, as the only natural alkaline polysaccharide in nature, also also has properties that other functional sugars do not.




Chitosan Oligosaccharide



Galacto Oligosaccharide


Type of action

1. Absorbs blood and acts directly on immune cells

2. Promoting the proliferation of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting harmful bacteria

Promoting the proliferation of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting harmful bacteria

Regulation of intestinal flora balance

Promoting the growth of Bifidobacterium, inhibiting the growth of harmful intestinal bacteria, producing B vitamins, decomposing carcinogens, promoting intestinal peristalsis and enhancing protein absorption, some experiments have proved that cos has the effect of inhibiting the adhesion of intestinal pathogens to large intestinal cells

Inhibition of E. coli and promotion of  Bifidobacterium

Prevention of constipation

By regulating the intestinal flora, promoting the microbial fermentation, the product of fermentation produces osmotic effect, thus accelerating intestinal transport, defecation




Improving lipid metabolism

Lower serum levels of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and triglycerides

Reducing total serum cholesterol concentration

Promoting calcium absorption and bone health

Increased the body's calcium retention, in addition to a significant increase in bone density and strength; accelerated fracture healing

Promoting calcium absorption and preventing bone loss


Chitosan oligosaccharides can effectively scavenge hydroxyl free radical, superoxide anion, dpph and other reactive oxygen free radicals


Lowering blood sugar

Can prevent and treat type ii diabetes. It slows the spread of glucose to the intestinal wall and acts on insulin receptors to suppress elevated blood sugar



Inhibition of tumor cell proliferation, induction of tumor cell death, inhibition of vascular hyperplasia, activation of anti-cancer immune cells, stimulate the body's own immunity;

Indirect inhibition of killing tumor cells through Bifidobacterium proliferation

Enhanced immunity

Can directly enhance the phagocytosis of macrophages

Activating the phagocytosis of phagocytes through Bifidobacterium proliferation
