FOS/ACIDOPHILUS - A Natural Nutritional Supplement

Scientifically speaking, FOS is the purest form of short-chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS) available. ScFOS, also called a prebiotic, is found naturally in many fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, you would need to eat 6 bananas, 4 onions or 95 cloves of garlic daily to get the same amount of scFOS found in just one gram of FOS. Studies show that just one gram (1/4 teaspoon) of FOS included in your daily diet can help you stay healthy.

Digestive problems? Looking to improve your digestive health?

You are not alone - tens of millions of people worldwide suffer from some sort of digestive problems, ranging from upset stomachs and constipation to more serious conditions such as Crohn's disease and colon cancer. Poor dietary habits, aging, overuse of antibiotics, and stress all take their toll on your digestive system. Yet your overall health depends on a properly functioning digestive system. Through this vital system, you digest food, absorb nutrients, remove waste byproducts, and fight disease. Indeed, the digestive system is crucial to maintaining overall health. Until now, proper nutrition and exercise have been the key elements in helping maintaining your health. Now there is another tool: FOS/Acidophilus.

FOS/ACIDOPHILUS Works Naturally to Promote Your Health

FOS passes through your stomach without being digested. As FOS enters the lower digestive tract, 'friendly bacteria' that naturally live there use it as a food source. These bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus, are considered "'friendly' because they help digest food, and boost your body's resistance to infection and disease. And as the friendly bacteria use FOS and multiply, they help create an unfavorable environment in the digestive system for some harmful bacteria to survive. These harmful bacteria, such as E. coli and Clostridia, have been known to produce toxins that can have negative health consequences. Helping your body fight these harmful bacteria is one key way that FOS/Acidophilus helps you stay healthy.

Everyone Can Benefit From FOS/ACIDOPHILUS

FOS has been clinically proven safe and effective in over 150 studies. FOS has also been widely used in the United States, Europe, and Japan for more than ten years. In fact, FOS has been used safely by people ranging in age from infants to the elderly. FOS does not affect blood glucose levels, so it is safe for diabetics. FOS is all natural, non-GMO, low-calorie, hypoallergenic, and does not contain any wheat, soy, gluten, or dairy products.

Strengthen your immune system
Clinical studies show that one gram per day of FOS increases friendly bacteria by over 500% in just four weeks. Research has also shown that increased friendly bacteria lead to improved immune function. As friendly bacteria increase, harmful bacteria are crowded out, along with the toxic substances these harmful bacteria produce. Your body can then more effectively fight disease and infection.
Improve your body's absorption of calcium and magnesium
Friendly bacteria convert FOS into short-chain fatty acids. These beneficial substances help your body's ability to absorb key minerals like calcium and magnesium. By improving calcium absorption, FOS can help maintain bone density and may assist in reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
Promote regularity
FOS acts as a soluble dietary fiber. Most people don't get enough fiber in their diets. Supplementing your diet with FOS helps improve bowel function and promote regularity in two ways. First, by increasing friendly bacteria, regularity is improved because the digestive system works more efficiently. Secondly, FOS helps draw water into the colon, softening stool and improving transit time.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus The 'Pro' of Probiotics

At birth, all of us were blessed with millions of protective bifidus and lactobacillus intestinal bacteria. These 'friendly' bacteria safeguard the gastrointestinal tract. They aid your immune system, and assists in the digestion of food including proteins, and amino acids, a process in which enzymes, B vitamins, hydrogen peroxide, and anti-biotic substances are produced. Most importantly, these good bacteria make the lower intestine slightly acidic, inhibiting the growth of Candida albicans and bad bacteria such as E. coli and clostridia bacteria, which are responsible for many serious illnesses. Acidophilus has antifungal properties, aids digestion, enhances the absorption of nutrients, and helps normalize cholesterol levels

The flora in a healthy colon should be at least 85 percent lactobacilli and 15 percent coliform bacteria. The average person today has just the reverse which can result in bloating, gas, constipation, and malabsorption of nutrients. This condition allows the overgrowth of Candida albicans and can result in intestinal and systemic toxicity.

Taking an acidophilus supplement helps return the colon to a healthy balance and detoxify the harmful toxins. Acidophilus is able to balance unfriendly bacteria by making the lower intestine slightly acidic, they change the intestinal environment, making it unsuitable for 'bad' bacteria. Acidophilus doesn't destroy the bad bacteria; it simply destroys their home, causing them to leave.

Now you can have the 'Best' of both

By combining FOS (fructooligosaccharides) and Lactobacillus Acidophilus you get the best synbiotic balance nature can provide! You get immediate results from the probiotic acidophilus, giving you the best possible short term answer to digestive problems. When you add the prebiotic FOS, it gives the long term resolution you have been searching for.

Suggested use

To get the health benefits of FOS/Acidophilus, you need to use it daily. We recommend starting with one gram (1/4 teaspoon) daily, working up to 3 or 4 grams (3/4 to 1 teaspoon) a day after a few weeks. For best results; take 1/2 of the amount mid-morning and 1/2 the amount mid-afternoon. The only side effects associated with FOS/Acidophilus, if you take too much too soon, are some mild gas or bloating. This is associated with the fiber-like aspect of FOS/Acidophilus and the rapid growth of beneficial bacteria in your system. If you experience these side effects, just reduce the amount of FOS/Acidophilus in your diet to give your body time to adjust.
