Source Naturals FOS is a complex of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) - a group of naturally occurring carbohydrates that can help promote the growth of beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract. The body normally maintains a balance of "friendly" flora in the intestines; unfortunately factors such as improper diet, stress, gastrointestinal problems, and use of antibiotics may disrupt this delicate balance. FOS are long chain sugars that are indigestible by humans, but serve as "food" for friendly flora helping to increase their numbers in the body. Scientific research conducted in Japan has shown that FOS are selectively used by friendly flora such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.

Seems to work well
Pretty easy to use
This tastes fine (just slightly sweet). Stir it as soon as you add it to liquids, otherwise it forms clumps at the bottom of your drink.

This is good for feeding probiotics and helping them get well established. Had a noticeable (positive) effect on my intestines. To avoid taking a supplement you can get FOS from foods such as asparagus, but this can be good to take temporarily if you have a lot of gut problems. Zinc can be a good idea as it helps the gut heal.
