Health Notes

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and Other Oligosaccharides

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and Other Oligosaccharides
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

High Triglycerides
Dose: 8 to 20 grams daily
Several trials have shown that FOS supplementation lowers triglycerides in people with elevated levels. (more)
Eczema
Dose: 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides mixture added daily to infant formula
In one study, adding a mixture of 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides to infant formula prevented the development of eczema in babies who were at high risk of developing eczema. (more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Refer to label instructions
In one trial, supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides significantly lowered fasting blood-sugar levels and serum total-cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.(more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 5 grams per day
Supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides may help relieve abdominal discomfort, fullness, constipation, urgency, and diarrhea. (more)
Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Supplementing with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) appears to improve iron absorption and restore iron levels, which may be reduced after surgery.(more)
High Triglycerides
Dose: 8 to 20 grams daily

Several double-blind trials have evaluated the efficacy of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) or inulin (a related compound) for lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. These trials have shown that in individuals with elevated total cholesterol or triglyceride levels, including people with type 2 diabetes, FOS or inulin (in amounts ranging from 8 to 20 grams daily) produced significant reductions in triglyceride levels; however, the effect on cholesterol levels was inconsistent.1, 2, 3, 4 In people with normal or low cholesterol or triglyceride levels, FOS or inulin produced little effect.5, 6, 7

Eczema
Dose: 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides mixture added daily to infant formula

In a double-blind trial, the addition of a mixture of 90% galacto-oligosaccharides and 10% fructo-oligosaccharides to infant formula prevented the development of eczema in infants who were at high risk of developing eczema. The incidence of eczema in the first six months of life was 9.8% in the group receiving oligosaccharides, compared with 23.1% in the placebo group, a statistically significant difference. The product used in this study was designed to mimic the oligosaccharide content of human milk, and was added at a concentration of 0.8 grams per 100 ml.1

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: Refer to label instructionsIn a preliminary trial, supplementation with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) (8 grams per day for two weeks) significantly lowered fasting blood-sugar levels and serum total-cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.1 However, in another trial, supplementing with FOS (15 grams per day) for 20 days had no effect on blood-glucose or lipid levels in people with type 2 diabetes.2 In addition, some double-blind trials showed that supplementing with FOS or galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) for eight weeks had no effect on blood-sugar levels, insulin secretion, or blood lipids in healthy people.3, 4 Because of these conflicting results, more research is needed to determine the effect of FOS on diabetes and lipid levels.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 5 grams per day In a double-blind trial, supplementation with 5 grams of fructo-oligosaccharides per day for six weeks was significantly more effective than a placebo at relieving symptoms of dyspepsia such as such as abdominal discomfort, fullness, constipation, urgency, and diarrhea. The average symptom severity decreased by 44% in the group receiving fructo-oligosaccharides.1

Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
Dose: Refer to label instructions

One preliminary study found iron levels to be reduced after both minor and major surgeries, and iron supplementation prior to surgery was not able to prevent this reduction.1 A controlled trial found that intravenous iron was more effective than oral iron for restoring normal iron levels after spinal surgery in children.2 One animal study reported that supplementation with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) improved the absorption of iron and prevented anemia after surgery,3 but no human trials have been done to confirm this finding. Some researchers speculate that iron deficiency after a trauma such as surgery is an important mechanism for avoiding infection, and they suggest that iron supplements should not be given after surgery.4

The term "oligosaccharide" refers to a short chain of sugar molecules ("oligo" means "few" and "saccharide" means "sugar.") Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin, which are found in many vegetables, consist of short chains of fructose molecules. Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), which also occur naturally, consist of short chains of galactose molecules. These compounds can be only partially digested by humans.1, 2, 3, 4 When oligosaccharides are consumed, the undigested portion serves as food for "friendly" bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species.

Comments about EPIQ™ SHRED:

I usually don't take things that are supposed to help me lose weight because they usually scare me off. This product didn't seem to have a bunch of ingredients that I couldn't pronounce though so I gave it a try. This has helped me lose some weight while I was eating right and exercising. I am happy I received this as a free sample because I will be using it again in the future.

    Comments about EPIQ™ SHRED:

    I take Lexapro for Anxiety and I was worried about taking a weight loss supplement because the last thing I need is something that makes me feel anxious... Well I spoke to the gentleman at GNC, described my situation and he recommended Epiq Shred. I couldn't be happier!!! Seriously, it is the best thing I have ever taken that really does curb my appetite with NO jittery feeling, heart racing or anything else. In fact, if I didn't put it in my mouth, I wouldn't even know I was taking anything. My hardest point of the day is between lunch and dinner and this fills that gap for me effortlessly. Great product!

        I dont take weight loss supplements normally but I recieved a sample of this to try out. Well, it did what it said it would. I lost weight, and lost it fast. It was good weight loss though, I felt like I stayed hard and kept all my muscle and just lost fat. If you want to loose weight quick, this works.

          There's nothing bad I can really say about this supplement. It works and it works well. It gives me a ton of energy and also curbs my appetite which is especially helpful for the cravings when I'm dieting. Definitely makes training a lot easier with the the energy I get from it.

          I took the product a month ago, two times per day, I do cardio 4 times per week, 40min, I try to eat healthy, I did not lose a pound, instead I gained 2 pounds! The only thing is that I lost some cms, on my waist, 4cms, and it worked like an appetite supresant, i did not feel hungry.

          This is the time of year where I am busy, busy, busy and not able to have a stable workout routine. I tried Epiq Shred in hopes it would give me some help mainting or losing a few pounds. I am in my last week and had not lost or gained until todays weigh in, now I am 3lbs heavier. I will say it does keep me alert during the day with no jitters like a thermogenic supplement but was hoping to see at least some type of weightloss even if it were minimal to start.

            Comments about EPIQ™ SHRED:

            I posted an initial review of the ingredient profile back in January and I have just finihed my bottle. I am currently eating above my caloric maintenance while weighlifting 5 days/week with high intensity. In the first 2 weeks, I had lost 1 pound, even though I had been gaining 1/2 pound a week on my diet, which was my goal. At the end, the scale did go up 2 lbs, but this would be due to the help of other supplements for muscle building. I had noticed that I was leaner around my upper body, a clear indication of fat loss.

            I was expecting Shred to just help me maintain my weight, but I actually was able to continue building lean muscle mass while losing some fat and getting leaner (normally one would have to eat at a caloric deficit to start getting leaner).

            I took Shred 30 minutes before lunch and dinner. For me, it didn't really suppress my appetite and I wasn't expecting that since this is a stimulant-free product. If one were to take Shred along with a proper diet for fat loss, then I'm sure the results would be better than mine (with respect to pounds lost), since I was eating above my maintenance to put on mass.

              Comments about EPIQ™ SHRED:

              This is a great product. It is not full of ingredients that you never heard of. It has only quality, research proven ingredients. Also for those of you that compete in organizations that have very strict rules of supplements you can and cannot use. You will not run into any problems with this product because everything is all natural.

              SHRED gives you a high dose of Rasberry Ketones unlike a lot of other products.
              L-Carnitine-l-tartrate which turns fat into energy
              Green tea is a powerful antioxidant that has an abundance of benefits..fights cancer, burns fat, etc.
              CLA is also proven to aid in fat loss and also helps retain muscle during a cut and has antioxidant properties as well,
              Saffron extract is new to me but from what I read about it, it is suppose to be an appetite surpressant. I do know that saffron is a spice used for cooking and it is rediculously expensive. So this is definetely something new for the fat loss category.
              Overall great product with proven indredients.
