Benefits of sc-FOS

(sc-FOS = short chain FructoOligoSaccharides)

 

Clinical evidence shows that:

 

 

Prebiotic / Bifidogenic

2.5g of sc-FOS per day stimulates the growth of Bifidobacteria in the colon, Beneficially affects the intestinal flora.

Reference:

Bouhnik, Y. et al. 2006. The capacity of short chain fructo-oligosaccharides to stimulate fecal bifidobacteria: A dose-response relationship study in healthy humans. Nutrition Journal 5.

Bouhnik, Y. et al. 1999. Short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides administration dose-dependently increases faecal bifidobacteria in healthy humans. Journal of Nutrition 129: 113-116.

 

 

 

 

2.5g of sc-FOS per day

 

• Prebiotic

• Bifidogenic

• Beneficially affects the intestinal flora

 

 

Improve Digestive Health and Bowel Movement

5g of sc-FOS per day improves digestive comfort, Relieves bowel disorders, Relieves constipation.

5g of sc-FOS per day

 

• Improve Digestive Comfort

• Relieve Bowel Disorders

• Relieve Constipation

 

 

Maintenance of Healthy Blood Lipid Levels

8g of sc-FOS per day regulates blood lipid levels,

Supports the regulation of cholesterol levels. Low Glycemic Index.

8g of sc-FOS per day

 

• Regulates Blood Lipid Levels

• Supports Regulation of Cholesterol Levels

• Low Glycemic Index

 

 

Increases Mineral (Ca/ Mg) Absorption

10g of sc-FOS per day enhances magnesium absorption,

Supports isoflavone activity on bone health.

10g of sc-FOS per day

 

• Enhances Ca / Mg Absorption

• Supports Isoflavone Activity on Bone Health

 

Carbohydrate metabolism

sc-FOS is low caloric, does not increase blood glucose, does not increase insulin levels and is low glycaemic.

Reference:

T. Tokunaga. Novel physiological function of fructooligosaccharides. Biofactors. 2004 ;21 (1-4):89-94

 

 

 

• Low caloric

• Does not increase blood glucose

 Does not increase insulin level

 Low glycaemic

 

 

 

Stimulate production of butyrate for healthy colon

sc-FOS stimulates the production of short chain Fatty Acids and especially butyrate, and contributes to the maintenance of healthy conditions in the colon.

F. Bornet, F. Brouns. Immune-stimulating and Gut Health-promoting Properties of Short-chain Fructo-oligosaccharides. Nutrition Reviews

Volume 60, Issue 10, pages 326–334, October 2002

 

 

 

 

• Stimulate production of butyrate

• contributes to healthy colon

 

Immune stimulation and colorectal cancer prevention

Through modulation of gut flora, fermentation and changes in the colon environment, sc-FOS helps to maintain a healthier colon and protect against colorectal cancer, probably due to:

- increased production of butyrate and its regulation effect on colon cell cycle

- stimulation and interaction with the intestinal immune system

- reduce colonization of the intestine by pathogenic bacteria

- enhanced detoxification processes

- modulate cellular events important for cancer prevention
