What is FOS?
 
Source Naturals FOS is a complex of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) - a group of naturally occurring carbohydrates that can help promote the growth of beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract. The body normally maintains a balance of "friendly" flora in the intestines; unfortunately factors such as improper diet, stress, gastrointestinal problems, and use of antibiotics may disrupt this delicate balance. FOS are long chain sugars which are indigestible by humans, but serve as the "food" for friendly flora helping to increase their numbers in the body. Scientific research conducted in Japan has shown that FOS are selectively used by friendly flora such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
 
What does FOS do?
 
Since fructooligosaccharides are non-digestible, they pass through the human digestive virtually unchanged. When the fructooligosaccharides reach the colon, they are used by the good or beneficial bacteria found there (known as bifidobacteria or bifidus) for growth and multiplication. A healthy population of these beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract enhances the digestion and absorption of nutrients, detoxification and elimination processes, and helps boost the immune system. It is becoming increasingly recognised that probiotic products containing beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria organisms can be useful in the prevention and treatment of diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics. 
 
Fructooligosaccharides can also help maintain a healthy balance of the "good" bacteria with the "bad" bacteria in the digestive tract. When the "bad" bacteria dominates, a condition known as "dysbiosis" can occur. Dysbiosis can then lead to other problems throughout the body. Fructooligosaccharides may also be of benefit in helping to relieve constipation and other gastrointestinal disorders, including problems related to irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and lactose intolerance.
