The Health Benefits of Oligofructose Enriched Inulin
Inulin and oligofructose are the two most natural and beneficial prebiotics we know. As a supplement, they are both available as a pure white powder, which has a slight natural, sweet taste and dissolves readily in any fluid. However, inulin and oligofructose are different in the way and where they act.
Oligofructose (FOS) is a short, small molecule. When it enters the colon in the right lower side of the abdomen down by the appendix, it is immediately fermented and used up by the bacteria that reside in this part of the colon. No problem with this situation except that there is little left to get across to the rest of the colon on the left side.
Inulin, on the other hand, is a larger, more complex molecule. It takes the colon’s bacteria longer to ferment it. So, there is much more available to the bacteria that reside in the rest of the colon, mostly on the left side. Foods with these prebiotics are rather low in the oligofructose component, so an ideal formula would be one where the basic inulin would be enriched with oligofructose.
Where to Buy Inulin and Oligofructose. The Prebiotin formula has significant amounts of both oligofructose and of inulin. The health benefits of inulin and oligofructose include positive bacterial action throughout the colon. It is why we call this product a full spectrum prebiotic formula. It is why medical researchers have overwhelmingly chosen this formula for their research. Products with just oligofructose or just inulin only give your colon half of what it really needs.
