Would recommend this product to anyone who has suffered like I have with constipation. I took this for a few months (2 times a day) when my constipation was at its worst and it has by far been the best laxative for me. Its gentle and does not give me that crippling stomach ache I can get from others. I did have to be patient with this and it didnt give me instant results, but longer term, its been the best thing I have ever taken for my ongoing constipation problems.I now very rarely take it and only keep a box in the cupboard if the problem were to reoccur!
