CAUTION: Some individuals using FOS experience gastrointestinal bloating that does not subside after 1 of 2 weeks of use. In those cases, FOS should be discontinued. Recent clinical experience by some practitioners suggests that there are some unfriendly microbial invaders that are suspected of feeding on FOS. Symptoms of that occurring would be as indicated above.
**NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PEOPLE WITH CITROBACTER FRUENDI**
These are short chain polymers of simple carbohydrates (fructose and sucrose) which do not behave like simple sugars in the body. They occur naturally in bananas, garlic, and certain other foods, and technically are a soluble fiber. FOS are effective sweeteners, being half as sweet as sucrose, yet are not absorbed and have minimal caloric value. They selectively support the proliferation of intestinal probiotics, especially the bifido bacteria. Just one teaspoon of this formulation provides FOS equivalent to the content of 13 bananas!
WARNING: At higher dosages intestinal gas may develop from the flourishing crop of intestinal flora.
