Fructo-Oligosaccharides Supplement

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) also called oligofructose, is a prebiotic supplement that selectively nourishes the bifidobacteria that benefits intestinal flora. This inulin FOS improves gastrointestinal health and benefits from a natural sweet taste. You can now buy this supplement online at Supersmart and enjoy its benefits for the digestive system.

What are fructo-oligosaccharides?

Short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides are obtained from sugar beet, by an enzyme produced by Aspergillus niger, a microscopic fungus widely used in the food industry. With a very similar structure to that of saccharose, fructo-oligosaccharides has the same sweet taste and texture. Their sweetening ability is around a third of that of saccharose but they have only 2 calories per gram, half that of sugar. Oligofructose, a subgroup of inulin, (also called fructo-oligosaccharides) is a natural fiber concentrate. 1 teaspoon of our supplement is equivalent to 10 bananas, 700g of rye or 40 cloves of garlic.

What are the benefits associated to Fructo-oligosaccharides?

Improvements in the Digestive System

Fructo-oligosaccharides improves digestive health. After 6 weeks' consumption, abdominal pain was reported to have decreased significantly.

  • 96% of subjects observed a noticeable improvement in their digestion and 83% reported an improvement in their general well-being.
  • Taking 5 g fructo-oligosaccharides a day over six weeks reduced the intensity and occurrence of digestive problems, improving the digestion and quality of life of 105 volunteers with mild intestinal problems.
  • Promotes a healthy colon and digestive system by stimulating the production of short-chain fatty acids, particularly butyrate, the fuel' of the colon.
  • By increasing butyrate levels from intestinal fermentation, fructo-oligosaccharides help maintain a healthy intestinal mucous membrane.
  • They also have a tendency to reduce the colon's pH, linked to the production of short chain fatty acids. This decrease in pH helps maintain the colon in a healthy state.

Benefits for the Immune System

A number of studies have demonstrated a beneficial effect on the immune system, with a strengthening effect on the intestinal barrier and a reduction in potentially pathogenic bacteria in the intestinal system. By modulating intestinal flora and fermentation, they have a major effect on resistance to diseases such as cancer or inflammatory disorders.

  • Reduces colonisation of the intestines by potentially pathogenic bacteria.
  • Interacts with the intestinal immune system.
  • Modulates important cellular events in order to prevent cancer.

What do the studies show about Fructo-oligosaccharides?

The effects of short-chain oligosaccharides have been demonstrated in over 150 scientific and medical studies, which have investigated the effects of daily consumption of 2.5 g.

  • A notable positive effect on the proliferation of these bacteria was observed at a dose of 2.5 g fructo-oligosaccharides a day, an effect which increased with doses up to 10 g a day.
  • The bifidogenic effect is apparent after only four days of taking fructo-oligosaccharides.
  • A dose of 8 g a day has a beneficial effect on the lipid profile.
  • 10 g a day boosts magnesium and calcium absorption: several studies have shown that it increases the absorption of isoflavones in food and improves bone mineral density.
