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
