  • Fructo-oligosaccharides in Food Aid Nutrient Absorption in the Body

    Learn the benefits of fructo-oligosaccharides and how these help bridge the nutrition gap and fight the effects of aging on your body.
  • Bridging the Gap
    To help bridge the nutrition gap among aging individuals, we need to boost the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This effectively results in revitalized energy, enhanced body functions and ultimately, improved health.

    Fortunately, fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), a prebiotic, soluble fiber was discovered to aid in nutrient absorption. FOS stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria, a beneficial kind of bacteria that is essential in maintaining balance in the digestive tract, paving the way for more nutrients to be absorbed by the body. The increase of beneficial bacteria also improves detoxification and elimination processes and enhances the immunse system. And since FOS is not digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract, it becomes lower in caloric value, while adding to the fiber bulk of one’s diet.

    The British Journal of Nutrition regards FOS as one of the important functional food components that have beneficial effects to the aging body. FOS naturally occurs in some foods such as onions, wheat, bananas and tomatoes.

    Ensure with FOS
