The active ingredient in Flourishe® is a special carbohydrate called FOS that is present in small quantities in some vegetables. Ours is derived from chicory root as much of the published work on FOS has been carried out using chicory and chicory root helps maintain normal intestinal health.

Please Note: Cheaper FOS, made from sugar beet (craftily described as ‘from sugar beet’) is available to the food industry and there are good reasons why we don’t use that in Flourishe®.

Interestingly, the average diet provides as little as 2 grams of FOS a day, while it is estimated that the optimum intake should be 5-10 grams. A heaped teaspoon of Flourishe® typically provides 5g of FOS.

Flourishe® is so simple to use; it easily dissolves into hot drinks in place of sugar (especially good in tea) or sprinkled onto cereals or puddings in place of sugar or honey. It tastes so good that many people prefer to just take it ‘off the spoon’. It has a pleasant sweet taste which all ages will love, including children (aged 4 years+) and pregnant women.

Flourishe® is also safe to take long term as it is a natural material that works with your body and not against it, so you can decide how long and how much to take. Thousands of satisfied customers take Flourishe®, and you can try it with no risk, because if you’re not completely satisfied, we’ll refund your money in full.

"Absolutely Worth Dropping Your Scepticism And Give It A Go!"
By , 25 Jun 2018
For the first time in my life I had suffered 4 months of difficulties going to the loo after starting a new diet, and no matter how big my fibre/ fluid intake was everything was moving too slowly and painfully, Hard dry stools were causing piles.
Out of desperation I seached for a natural solution, and started taking Flourishe at 5g a day for 3 days, then 10g daily for a week, then 15g. I found the 15g caused a bit too much gas of an evening and so the happy medium seems to be 12g a day for me. Gas isn't an issue now. I split this 12g into 2 doses, morning and afternoon. It easily dissolves in hot drinks, though I can detect it's flavour in tea so I prefer to put it in coffee and I've also discovered it will also dissolve into cold water if I sprinkle it gently onto the surface and stir well for 20 seconds (great in squash, completely undetectable!)
The results? It took 12 -14 days to get back to feeling 'normal' and that feeling has now continued for 2 whole wks. My new best friend!

"Highly Recommend This Product"
By , 21 Apr 2018
I have been taking Flourishe for two weeks to see if it would help with bowel regulatory. It does. I have an under active thyroid and was having to take laxatives too often. I take one teaspoon of Flourishe in the morning, sprinkled over fruit and muesli and one before bed off the spoon and this works for me. I am about to reorder as I have given one pot to a relative to try who has diverticulitis.

"Helps With Regular Bowel Movements"
By , 21 Mar 2018
I purchased this product as a result of wanting to increase my fiber intake after I suffered from hemorrhoids. My bowel movements were a complete mess. I have taken Flourish for the past 4 weeks and am now as regular as clockwork. The product was effective after a few days.
I did produce some excessive wind for the first couple of weeks, but this soon settled down. I now take 1 teaspoon on a morning with my smoothie, or hot water, followed by another teaspoon before going to bed.

"Absolutely Marvellous!!"
By , 10 Mar 2018
I suffer with diverticulitus and basically cannot live without this powder. Since I came out of hospital this product has been an absolute god send! I started to feel better as soon as I started taking it and I have tried a week without it and quickly realised the difference. I take 5ml spoonful a day in the evening and I have a regular routine in the morning and it is just a marvellous product to keep bowels stable and normal. Adore this product and recommend it to all people who may have problems in the bowel region. The friendly bacteria is so important to help keep everything under control. Love, love, love this product!!!!
