Product Information

Eating more natural soluble fibre from the special carbohydrate Fructo-Oligosaccharides or FOS derived from the inulin family is one of the best things we can do for our intestinal health. But, unfortunately, FOS is only present in small quantities in vegetables, so many modern diets struggle to provide the recommended daily amount of 5-10 grams.

Unlike other digestive supplements that use a cheaper FOS made from sugar beet (craftily described as 'from sugar beet'), Flourishe® contains a pure form of Fructo-Oligosaccharides from chicory root. Just one heaped teaspoon typically provides 5 grams of FOS, making it a convenient way to increase your soluble fibre intake.

Thanks to its pleasant, sweet taste, you can stir Flourishe® into hot drinks, add to cereal, or even enjoy it straight off the spoon. Suitable for children from the age of 4, adults, and during pregnancy.

You can safely supplement with Fructo-Oligosaccharides long-term, as it's a natural material that works with your body and not against it. We've chosen to supply Flourishe® in powder form instead of tablets or capsules, so our customers can tailor their dose and decide how much to take.

We source the chicory root for Flourishe® from growers with more than 10 years of experience in production, who only select and plant the highest variety of chicory seeds from Europe.

We oversee a sophisticated field management system from field to factory. This means we ensure strict control of the pH and temperature throughout the whole manufacturing process to retain the precious FOS.

To meet our quality standards, we manufacture and package our formula in UK factories working to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

Taking this to feed my gut microbiome along side my probiotic. The probiotic is definitely working better since taking this. My stomach got used to it fairly quickly. Slight sweet taste but not too noticeable. Will buy again.

I combine this with Acidophilus and no longer have sleepless nights because of reflux. Within the first couple of days I noticed a significant difference.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

As supplements can take some time to build up and have an effect in the body, we would normally suggest reassessing your symptoms after three months. However, I am pleased to hear that you are already starting to find this product helpful.

"Very Effective"
By Wendy , 15 Aug 2023

I suffer with constipation (IBS) and sometimes had to resort to la***ives, which was far from ideal. I''ve tried all sorts of different ways to regulate my bowel movement but nothing worked until I found Flourish. It just takes a teaspoon a day and I''m going regularly. It also tastes lovely (sweet). I have been using this for years now and would not be without it.

This was the first time i have tried it . Not very happy at the size of the tubs as virtually impossible to carry around with you when not at home. For me it would seem that it is totally the wrong product. But have not finished one tub as yet so reserve judgement.
