Eliminease (FOS)Fructo-oligosaccharides (F.O.S.) 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 bowel intact. Here they are used to maintain a healthy bowel function. F.O.S. stimulate the natural growth of friendly bacteria in our bowel.
This helps to move waste through the bowel because substances produced by the beneficial bacteria as they consume the F.O.S. actually stimulates the bowel wall to squeeze the waste along.
