Great product. I chose it to assist my digestion and sluggish bowel. I tried other brands which had inulin as the main ingredient but these made me bloated and gave indigestion. I take this at night, with some yogurt and fruit. It generally helps to keep me ''regular'' on a daily basis with no discomfort. I also take a probiotic to promote gut health.

I've used this only once since I received it. I did get a stomach ache, but don't know if that was the cause. I will use it again when I am at home all day.

Dr Michael Mosley in a UK TV programme, mentioned that prebiotics could improve sleep quality as a side effect. I've been taking FOS daily for a few weeks and I think it may be helping a little with my poor level of sleep. The down side is that it seems to make me ''windy''.

I was advised to take a prebiotic recently and I chose this one as I had used it years ago with good results. I can''t compare it to similar products as I haven''t used any but I would be happy to recommend this to anyone wanting to try a prebiotic.
