Fybogel Lemon (Ispaghula Husk) 3.5g sachet 30
Fybogel is a bulk-forming laxative, working by increasing the amount of water absorbed by the stools in the gut. The increased volume of water allows the digestive system to function more efficiently. Ispaghula Husk, an active ingredient of Fybogel, increases the fibre content in your diet gently relieving constipation. It restores and maintains regularity by helping your digestive system work more effectively.
Due to the natural process Fybogel uses it is available for constipation during pregnancy and to help maintain normal bowel function if you suffer from haemorrhoids (piles).
Browns Pharmacy healthy tips to try to help prevent constipation from happening:
- Eat a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables
- Drink enough water so that you do not become dehydrated
- Keep up your exercise and stay fit
- Make time to empty your bowels when your body tells you
