Ensure with FOS

I fell ill right after our honeymoon and was admitted to hospital for almost a week. After returning home, my body was still weak. It was after two weeks or so, my mum bought me Ensure with FOS. I was initially reluctant to drink because I thought it was disgusting. But for a better health, I took it. I promised myself to take at least the whole tin. The first drink was with water, which was quite awful. Then, my friend suggested that I add milk, which tasted better. I have completed the whole tin, for about 10 to 15 times. I take it as my replacement breakfast during the weekdays. And, I would say that it is really a dietary supplement, as I do not really feel hungry until lunch time. Also, I no longer feel the shiver that I used to have after returning home from the hospital. Given the improvement, I took the initiative to get another tin. And, I am halfway through it. Depending on the pharmacy, price range from RM 31 to RM 34 (I think) for the smaller tin of 400g. Well, plus the fresh low fat milk that I add to it, I think it is rather expensive. But, I exchanged it with a better health.

Fructooligossacharides or FOS, a prebiotic, soluble fiber was discovered to aid in nutrient absorption. It stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria, a beneficial group of bacteria that is essential in maintaining balance in the digestive tract, paving the way for more nutrients to be absorbed by the body. The increase of beneficial bacteria also improves detoxification and elimination processes and enhances the immune system. And since FOS is not digested in the upper gastrointestinal tract, it becomes lower in caloric value, while adding to the fiber bulk of one’s diet. It is regarded as one of the important functional food components that have beneficial effects to the aging body.
