Daily elimination is best, but if it’s been longer than three days, try Fibre Flow™ a gentle formulation developed for the relief of irregularity and constipation. It is a completely natural, bulk-forming laxative that helps to restore regularity and natural bowel contractions by increasing the volume and water content of the stool. It is made with a uniquely processed, freeze-dried kiwifruit extract from New Zealand that retains a high degree of the naturally-occurring enzymes found in the fruit. It is also formulated with a therapeutic dose of konjac root, which is well documented for its laxative properties.
