Fructoolygosaccharides and Inulin are different types of prebiotic fiber, and they selectively stimulate colonic bacteria. By taking a combination of the two fibers, you ensure you fertilize more types of bacteria. Microbiota biodiversity is a key for maintaining a great gut health. 

There is an increasing body of evidence that by taking a combination of the two prebiotics you are not only increasing biodiversity, but you also create a synergy within your gut. The effects obtained are enhanced when using the two fibers together versus using them separately.

Both inulin and FOS stimulate the activity of good bacteria in our guts, and discourage the growth of pathogen bacteria. FOS is known to stimulate the bacteria that produce short chain fatty acids, (butyrate, propionate, and acetate). Scfa's are essential for the health of the intestine and for immunity. They also play an important role in the microbome's dynamics.
