An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days.

Fructo-oligosaccharides (F.O.S.) (formally Lamberts Eliminex) are a class of soluble fibre naturally sourced from chicory root. F.O.S. can also be found naturally in onion, garlic and jerusalem artichoke.

F.O.S. are not digested in the upper gastro-intestinal tract and reach the colon intact. Here they are used to support the health of the colon.

Fructo-oligosaccharides help in 3 ways:-
  • They maintain a high moisture content of faecal matter (reduce transit time) and lower the pH of the colon.
  • They stimulate the natural growth of healthy, bifido bacteria by providing a "food substrate". They do not encourage bacteriodes or pathogenic micro-organisms.
  • Through the production of short chain fatty acids, they provide an energy source for epithelial gut mucosa cells, helping to maintain optimal intestinal permeability.
This natural non-habit forming fibre source is suitable for long term use and for all ages. Since Lamberts FOS is heat stable and pleasant tasting, this product may be used in hot foods or drinks, without affecting their palatability.

Keep away from children
