God send product

I was struggling with a serious flare up I could hardly eat anything without being super bloated and in pain. Then this was recommended to me. My initial thoughts were, ok let's give this one a go and see if it's any better than the last 5 products you took. After taking the tablets daily for 3 month I noticed that the pain was gone and the bloating barley noticeable! Due to my illness I'll probably always be dealing with some sort of bloating but this supplement helped tremendously! Only supplement that works for me. Give it a try and see for yourself.

Guts back to normal if a little noisier

This supplement seems to have got my gut back on track after a few weeks of IBS flaring up. Taking them with water about an hour before getting up seems to work best for me as opposed to having them with breakfast. Things are somewhat noisier now but back on track nonetheless. I’ve also noticed any digestive upset seems to resolve itself much quicker with these and is contained to a single day rather than dragging on like things used to. As much as the cheaper product is also attractive, being just the one strain, I’ll be sticking on these for a while.


I have struggled over the years to find anything that would help my IBS and mine is almost daily symptoms and can often be crippling. Being constantly bloated and unimaginable painful cramps almost daily is unbearable, to the point that I sometime dread the idea of eating for fear of the pain that is about to ensue. I have tried so many different things from prescribed options, to food products with cultures in them, to different probiotic tablet options, to diet changes, to fibre tablets, even been put on anti-depressants as a form of pain management (not for depression) and I haven't been able to find just one that helps. I can't say whether these little pills are the whole reason that my symptoms have eased but combined with an adjusted diet (monitoring FODMAP intake - goodbye onions and garlic and about a hundred gazillion other things), drinking more water (anyone else find it hard to drink nearly 2 ltrs a day or is it just me), adding Linseeds to food (may as well become a bird) and eating 2 Kiwi's a day (and some other tips and hints from the dietician), these little gut friendly pills seem to be playing a significant part in helping my symptoms. They do take time to kick in so don't expect miracles from day 1 (or even week 1) but nearly 4 weeks in and something seems to be changing for the better. I really hope these are the answer to my IBS nightmare. Thank you Inessa for these IBS friendly magic pills - I think you are my key to a hopefully an IBS improved life.

Please believe the hype!

My painful bloating symptoms occurred after almost every meal but since I started taking these, I have noticed a HUGE difference and it's only been a week or so. Less bloating, more regular bowel movement and just overall relief. It's helped so much I am putting my private consultation with a gastroenterologist on hold until further notice. Came back to see what other health benefits Inessa can offer me!

The best.

I have tried all sorts of probiotics and prebiotics with little change. I have IBS and Diverticular disease, gluten intolerant .. the list goes on. But these are a game changer.. after two weeks I feel so much better .. no gas, no bloating, no tiredness and I swear they also help my arthritis by keeping my gut on track. Yes they are expensive but less than a pound a day is worth it. Ive just bought my second lot. Thank you Inessa-game changing.

May not be suitable

Consult your doctor before use. Some (but not all) patients who are immunocompromised may lack the ability to mount an appropriate response to new bacteria in the gut, which may lead to serious complications.

Aliza founder of Inessa
From the founder

“As both a Nutritional Therapist and an IBD patient myself, I knew how challenging it was to find an effective solution to specific gut health requirements. I found clients had to combine supplements to get what they needed, which was time-consuming and expensive.

I wanted to ensure our probiotic blend included only strains with clinical evidence to support their use. And we were the first company to combine friendly bacteria with an effective dose of saccharomyces boulardii organisms, something I’m really proud of.”

Frequently asked questions

Yes it is, and it’s free of all major allergens.

Yes, and we’ve gone the extra mile to register it with the Vegan Society.

All the live organisms are in a delayed-release capsule, which not only ensures they survive the acid in your gastro-intestinal tract, but also improves their stability. This means they don’t need to be refrigerated, unless you’re in exceptionally hot conditions.

Although it can be taken by those looking to support general gut health, it’s been designed for specific gut health requirements and as such it’s pretty powerful. For general gut support, try our Advanced Daily Biotic.

While the probiotics it contains are well-tolerated, if you’re generally healthy and eat a nutritious, varied diet, it’s not usually necessary to use live bacteria products on an ongoing basis. We advise supplementing with Inessa Advanced Biotic Complex only at times you need it most, such as when you’re travelling abroad, during or after a course of antibiotics or if you’re recovering from a bug, for example. However, if you have a specific, chronic gut issue such as IBS or IBD, you may benefit from all-year use.

Take one capsule per day or as advised by a healthcare professional. Probiotics are best taken before breakfast, with a cold or room temperature beverage, as live bacteria may be damaged by heat. Although you should take the capsule with a cool beverage, there is no issue with having a hot drink afterwards. If you forget to take it earlier in the day, you can have it with other meals, though we don’t advise taking it after a meal.

Probiotics are deemed safe for most people, but if you are immunocompromised or taking certain types of immunosuppressant medication, you should always check with your doctor first. If you take other types of medication, always check with your doctor or the information leaflet with your medicine(s) for contraindications.
