FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES – also known as fructooligosaccharides are branched glucose polymers. They are resistant to digestive enzymes produced by the human body, but have the ability to improve overall health. Their health benefits come from the way they stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial microorganisms in the gut, namely probiotics. FOS are responsible for the appendix movement in the intestines. They also have a protective effect on the intestines. FOS is used as a dietary supplement in sports nutrition, especially in the prevention of gastrointestinal problems. They are especially recommended for monotonous, high-protein diets, poor in foods of plant origin. They help reduce the feeling of hunger and increase glucose metabolism. Some protein supplements, carbohydrate supplements, as well as slimming preparations contain fructooligosaccharides.
