Fructo Oligo Saccharides - naturally occurring component of fruit carbohydrates
You are utterly dependant upon your intestine as a primary organ for assimilating nutrients and eliminating toxins. You share the use of your intestine with 100 trillion microorganisms weighing roughly the same as your left arm from elbow to fingertip. Beneficial microorganisms, like p-cidophilus, support your health by creating specially needed nutrients like vitamins B-3, B-6, B-12, biotin, folic acid and K, plus natural antibiotics, anti-tumor factors and other immune factors.
Undesirable microorganisms like Candida albicans eat your food and poison you in return. Environmental pollution, antibiotics and sugary, processed foods can drastically alter your intestinal environment allowing undesirables to take over.
When eaten at the rate of 1 gram per day, FOS has been shown to decrease undesirables and to create a fivefold increase in beneficial, health-creating flora.
