FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) Powder from NutriCology® may enhance the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are a type of non-digestible carbohydrate that cannot be metabolized like regular sugars. They are called oligosaccharides and could contain between 3 and 10 simple sugars.
FOS is extracted from the blue agave plant and fruits and vegetable like bananas‚ onions‚ garlic‚ Jerusalem artichokes‚ and asparagus. It is also available in grains and cereals like wheat and barley.
FOS as present in this supplement from NutriCology® may be useful as a natural sweetener because it is half as sweet as sucrose and contains minimal calories. FOS could be considered a prebiotic. Prebiotics are a type of plant fiber that benefit and nourish the good bacteria present in the body. These fibers are not digestible by the body and work as a fertilizer to help the growth of many of the good bacteria in the gut. These‚ in turn‚ provide many digestive benefits.
The FOS used in this supplement is extracted from sugarcane and may support the growth of intestinal probiotics‚ especially the Bifidobacteria.
FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) Powder from NutriCology® may help the body maintain the delicate balance of microflora in the intestines.
