Description
Helps with body weight reduction*
Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels*

A refreshingly simple approach to healthy weight management.
Lineatabs® offers a solution which helps prevent some of the fat in your food from being absorbed by the body*, so you can maintain your weight without having to count calories or follow a crash diet. You can occasionally enjoy the foods that you might normally avoid without having to feel quite so guilty after every meal.

Lineatabs® features the key ingredient Solusitan®, a fat binding complex made of natural dietary fiber, that attracts dietary fat and disrupts its absorption.* The positively-charged Solusitan® fibers bind the negatively-charged fat molecules.* The result of the fat binding is some of the entrapped fat leaves the body through the digestive tract in a natural way, without unpleasant GI-related side effects.*
  • 100% Stimulant-free
  • 100% GMO-free
  • 100% Gluten-free
Refreshingly simple!
Just drop a Lineatabs® effervescent tablet in cold water and enjoy a refreshing lemon-lime supplement with every fatty meal!

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 APAX Lineatabs®:

    Wow, this is the easiest weight loss product I have ever used.I'll admit I was skeptical at first because I avoid those " Seen on T.V " products like the plague but knowing I really wanted to drop some weight before summer and my 30th class reunion I decided to give this product a try and I'm really glad I did. I have lost 10lbs in 3 weeks without dieting or doing any major workouts so I am very happy with this product . I use this product through out the day before I eat anything. The only drawback at first for me was the taste because it reminded me of taking an Alka -seltzer but I quickly got past that taste. My advice give this product a try. I think you'll like it too.

      Wow this product is Amazing! I am in love and it actually works and you can see that is works. I workout and generally eat healthy but every once in a while eat bad. This is all natural and I did my research the fibers bind to the fat and it does not have bad side affects. If you don't believe it, try it and you can will notice a difference in your stool when you go to the bathroom

        Comments about APAX Lineatabs®:

        It is really a refreshingly new approach to weight loss ! No more swallowing pills (Yay !) It's easy to take with every meal . Just drop one tablet in a glass of water and drink it. The taste is actually very pleasant. A subtle lemon-lime flavour.Tip : The tablet actually dissolves faster if you break it in pieces. Since I take this, I drink a lot more water so this might also be part of the positive effect I am having but I lost 9 pounds so far so I keep taking it everyday with my meals. Ooh, almost forgot, no nasty side effects !
