Fructooligosaccharides

Buy Our Fructooligosaccharides Supplement

 

In the food industry, FOS are used as a low calorie sweetener. Naturally, FOS are found mainly in plant foods including bananas, asparagus, maple syrup, onions, garlic, chicory, artichoke and blue agave.

 

As a dietary supplement, FOS are taken mainly today as a prebiotic supplement for their perceived effect in improving gut health, bowel movement and overall well-being.

Fructooligosaccharides Benefits and Uses

 

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are a type of carbohydrate, found mainly in plant foods. FOS are non-digestible which means that when consumed, they pass through our digestive tract and end up in our colons. Here, they act as prebiotics - compounds that play an essential role in promoting the growth of healthy bacteria in our gastrointestinal tracts.

 

As an oral supplement, Fructooligosaccharides are taken primarily for their perceived effect in promoting gut health and improving lipid levels in our bodies. FOS improve gut health by passing through our digestive tract into our colon where they function to increase stool mass and promote the growth of healthy bacteria.

 

In a 2019 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trail, 80 participants were administered FOS at three levels; 2.5, 5, and 10 g/day for a period of 90 days. At the end of the study, the consumption of FOS was found to significantly increase levels of healthy bacteria, Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.

 

Research suggests that Fructooligosaccharides intake may also have a beneficial effect on fat metabolism in our bodies. In a large 2015 review, FOS supplementation was recommended as a potential strategy for lowering cholesterol- a lipid known to increase the risk of heart disease.

Scientific Consensus:

 

As a dietary supplement, Fructooligosaccharides are recognized for their role in maintaining gut health and their potential role in improving lipid levels in our bodies.  Fructooligosaccharides are generally regarded as safe for children and adults when consumed at a dose of <10g/day.

 

Special Warning: Excessive consumption of fructooligosaccharides ( > 30g/day) can cause gastrointestinal disturbances such as diarrhea, flatulence, bloating and stomach cramps.

 

There is insufficient research to support the use of fructooligosaccharides supplementation during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The use fructooligosaccharides should therefore be avoided if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
