Jarrow Inulin FOS Enhances Calcium Absorption. Promotes Probiotic Bacteria Growth. Suitable for Vegetarians/Vegans. Inulin and FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) are soluble fibers found in an array of plant foods, including chicory, onions, asparagus and bananas. These fibers promote gut and overall health through their fermentation by gut flora, primarily in the colon, to yield important metabolites, including lactic acid and the short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate and butyrate. These metabolites help to maintain proper pH in the gut, discourage the growth of undesirable bacteria, reduce the absorption of toxic ammonia and positively affect bone health by increasing the bioavailability of dietary calcium.
