    Who is it for?
    For anyone looking for a live cultures supplement with FOS for natural fibre.

    • Each sachet provides 5 billion friendly bacteria + 4g of Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) fibres. The billions count is guaranteed until end of expiry.
    • The strain contained in this supplement is very well researched and is thought to be the world's most researched strain of Bifidobacteria.
    • Scientifically proven to pass through stomach acidity and survive to reach the gut.
    • Easy to take on the go – no refrigeration required.
    • Suitable for: women during pregnancy, breastfeeding mothers, the elderly, vegetarians, vegans and gluten free for those with coeliac disease or an intolerance.
    • Suitable from 1 year onwards.
    • Recommended for daily use or as needed.
    • Free from artificial flavourings or colourings that may be found in other food & drinks containing live cultures.
    • Available in two pack sizes of 10 or 30 sachets.

    FOS may initially result in flatulence and / or bloating in some people. These side effects are temporary and should stop as the body adjusts. If side effects continue for 3-4 days, consider reducing the dosage.

    Please note: This is a food supplement and is not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions.

  • How to use

    Instructions for use

    Food supplement suitable for adults and children (from 1 year onwards) with the following recommendations:

    • Initial use: Take 1 sachet (and up to 4 sachets if required) daily with food.
    • Ongoing use: 1 sachet will often suffice but more can be taken as desired or as professionally directed.
    • It is strongly recommended to drink plenty of water with this supplement.
    • Shake the sachet, then slowly sprinkle contents into a glass of water and vigorously swirl to dissolve fully.
    • Do not use a spoon to stir as this may cause the sachet contents to clump.
    • Do not exceed recommended daily dosage.

    Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. Those with serious medical conditions should consult their doctor before use.

    • I read some really good popular science books from the library on how the gut works and that helped me understand my body better. That led me to looking into friendly bacteria and I looked at all the info on the internet about the different types and looking for a reliable supplier and I found my way to this product about six months ago. I like their research ethic and the advice is helpful. I was not over hopeful as nothing else had worked but I did feel different after a few days and after about 3 weeks I settled into a new routine. I take one sachet every morning as soon as I get up. A second sachet at night if needed. I can get on with my life.

    • Someone mentioned trying probiotics... I have never looked back. Within 2 days, things returned to normal. Can't recommend this product highly enough.
