Many people have problems with irregularity, particularly if they don't have the right diet. This is a 100% natural excellent source of fibre which can help with that, to purify and decontaminate your colon. Plantago is a bulk forming laxative which is high in both fibre and mucilage, which works because the husks swell when they come into contact with water, which forms a gelatinous mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft (provided you drink enough fluids, as directed). The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the bowel's walls, followed by emptying. This product also contains the fructo-oligosaccharides, a prebiotic , to increase bowel mass and promote the growth of certain bacteria thought to be beneficial.
Product Notes:Contains no preservatives, artificial colour or flavour, sugar, dairy, starch, wheat, corn, soy, gluten, or yeast. Health Canada Natural Product Number 80044396.
Ingredients:Each teaspoon contains: Psyllium (Plantago ovata) husks): 2,128 mg; Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) flower buds: 53 mg; Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) root: 53 mg; Inulin: 100 mg; and Hibiscus sabdariffa: 126 mg.
Suggested Usage:Adults (19+): Take 1 teaspoon twice daily. For each gram of psyllium, take with 30 ml of liquid (water, milk, fruit juice, or similar aqueous beverage). Drink immediately and maintain adequate fluid intake. Effects observed 12–24 hours after the first dose; results may take 2–3 days. Take 2 hours before or after taking other medications. Avoid long-term use and consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 6 weeks. Also take 1–2 capsules of enteric-coated AcidophilusUltra each day. Start progressively or as directed by your health care practitioner. Our AcidophilusUltra capsule is protected by an enteric coating. The capsule must survive stomach acids and be delivered to the small intestine in order to work. The beneficial activity of acidophilus capsules without an enteric coating is destroyed in the stomach by stomach acids.
