What is NutraFlora®?
NutraFlora® by Now Foods is a nutritional supplement based on fructooligosaccharides, a soluble type of fiber that is very abundant in vegetables.
What are the properties of NutraFlora®?
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are oligosaccharides found naturally in plants such as onion, chicory, garlic, asparagus, banana, artichoke, among many others. They formed by linear chains of fructose units, joined by beta (2-1) bonds.
FOS have important beneficial physiological effects such as a prebiotic effect, a better absorption of minerals and a decrease in the serum levels of cholesterol, triacylglycerols and phospholipids.
According to the following study: 'Currently FOS are increasingly included in food products and infant formulas due to their prebiotic effect stimulate the growth of nonpathogenic intestinal microflora. Their consumption increases fecal bolus and the frequency of depositions, while a dose of 4-15 g/day given to healthy subjects will reduce constipation, considered one of the growing problems of modern society, and newborns during the first months of life.'
