100% natural. Can lead to better bowel tone, more regular movements and a reduction in digestive \'91upsets\'92. A sweet soluble powder that can either be mixed into hot or cold drinks, sprinkled onto cereals and desserts or eaten off the spoon. Safe for long-term use.
Directions: Take one heaped teaspoon = 5g daily. This product may be used in one of two ways: At low doses FOS acts as a prebiotic (bowel-\'91conditioner\'92) and at larger doses FOS conditions the bowel and also helps maintain regularity. Follow directions on the packaging.
Dissolve in hot drinks or sprinkle onto cereal. Alternatively simply take it \'91off the spoon\'92. Be sure to drink at least 2 litres of fluids a day.
Additional Warnings: If any of these intake levels cause excessive flatulence then reduce the dose and gradually build up. The flatulence is a positive sign that FOS has reached the bowel and is feeding your \'91friendly\'92 bacteria. As the bacteria consume FOS a gas is produced which can lead to some flatulence at first however after a few days this will disappear as further \'91friendly\'92 bacteria develop and absorb the gases. For intakes over 10g (or 5g in children); dividing the intake into 2 daily doses 1 at each end of the day will help reduce flatulence.
FOS may cause temporary bloating. This is a short-term effect and once your system \'91speeds up\'92 the bloating will disappear. If bloating continues for more than 3 days then reduce the daily intake of FOS.
