Inulin FOS 180 Grams from Jarrow Formulas® may increase the overall health of gut flora and may generate metabolites such as lactic acid‚ short chain fatty acids acetate‚ propionate and butyrate.
Inulin Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are carbohydrate found mostly in root vegetables such as Jerusalem artichoke‚ chicory root. It is believed that this carbohydrate may also be found in onions and garlic‚ though not in larger quantities. The human body does not completely digest these starches and the undigested starches may provide nourishment to the good bacteria in our colon. When we do not include these foods in our diet regularly‚ we may use this supplement from Jarrow Formulas®. Inulin FOS is generally used as a fiber supplement and a prebiotic. Though it is not digestible in the gut‚ it may help by stimulating the growth of certain bacteria that may contain beneficial qualities.
Bifidobacteria digests inulin to produce the short chain fatty acids like acetic‚ propionic and butyric acids. Certain studies have revealed that these fatty acids may help the liver for energy production.
There are some clinical studies‚ which state that Inulin FOS may help with irritable bowel syndrome and sometimes in cases of traveler’s diarrhea. There are private studies‚ which believe that Inulin FOS may improve magnesium and copper absorption by the body.

Great for The Guts ecosystem.
Okay Inulin FOS is a great product. I take Raw Milk Kefir everyday and when you add Inulin FOS to it or any other nutrient product it helps to feed the good guys in the gut. Which is what you want as it will help her mood your relaxation rates your ability to handle stress as long as the good bacteria in the system is thriving. Its great and actually tastes good on it own in my opinion. heheh

Jarrow makes some great stuff :D
I take inulin (FOS) on a regular basis. the only difference between Inulin FOS and others that ive taken is the FOS is "beneo synergy 1" which studies show helps absorb more nutrients when compared to other products. I would lke to give a fair warning though. as with any inulin (FOS) product you will still want to keep a batch of healthy flora (Probiotics) near by. it is this healthy flora that keep the bad bacteria in check. and if you dont have enough healthy flora then you may very well be feeding the bad bacteria with FOS. (Research "kefir grains" and save yourself money and have better probiotics than what you can get at the store) Stay Healthy!
I would like to a similar product that also includes Probiotics.
