  • 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).

Frequently Asked Questions (7)
Q - "What Are The Benefits Of Taking Fructo-Oligosaccharides (Fos) From Chicory Root?"
A - FOS from chicory root can help support digestive health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. FOS may also support regular bowel movements. Additionally, they are low in calories and can be used as a sugar substitute.
Q - "What Are Fructo-Oligosaccharides (Fos) Derived From Chicory Root?"
A - Fructo-Oligosaccharides (FOS) are a type of dietary fibre that are derived from the root of the chicory plant (Cichorium intybus). They are composed of short chains of fructose molecules and are considered prebiotics, as they serve as a food source for beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Q - "How Does Flourishe® (Fructo-Oligosaccharides/Fos) Work?"
A - FOS are not digested by the human body but instead pass through the digestive system intact until they reach the colon. Once in the colon, they serve as a food source for beneficial bacteria, stimulating their growth and activity. This process is believed to promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and support overall digestive health.
Q - "Are There Any Side Effects From Taking Flourishe®?"
A - Flourishe® is considered safe for most people when consumed in moderate amounts. Initially, some individuals may experience flatulence or bloating. It is advisable to start with a small dosage and gradually increase it while monitoring your body's response.
Q - "How Does Flourishe Compare To Aloe Vera Supplements / Aloe Vera Tablets?"
A - Both aloe vera and Flourishe® start working in the upper digestive tract and are often used for the same outcomes. However, FOS, a natural soluble fibre (Flourishe®) is more researched and has wider applications.

I have bought this product for a long time and it was brilliant BUT this time it tastes very different and it doesn’t work as it use too. The amount in the tub was a lot less too. Which is a shame, I lived this product but not sure if I will carry on using it.
