I highly recommend this supplement http://monster-drugs.com/vitolax.php One of the components of this stuff is isabgol. It acts as a high fiber bulk forming laxative. Have a nice stool :)

Constipation is a symptom of something else. It is not a curable condition - although it might disappear when you sort out the underlying problem - whatever that may be.

Fibre is good as a general thing, but it would be better to have a good lifestyle (diet, exercise, water, less stress, etc)

I have tried it all, and found the solution was so simple! I have been in agony for years with constipation. Sometimes only one BM in a week. I didn't want to leave the house, I was afraid of impaction and actually had several. I tried all kinds of fruits, juices, prune juice, kiwis, I took laxatives, metamucil, exercised, and the only thing that half-way worked was salba (chia) seeds. Then a miracle. I heard about Q-10 (the pure form, ubiquinol). One little gelcap a day, it takes about 5 days to get it really working in your system, and I have had an easy BM every day since, with the exception of missing it a day or two, and I went right back to constipation. I don't miss it anymore. Even the regular drug store kind will work, but is not as sure as the pure form. It is available at health food stores online (Swanson, Puritan Pride, etc.) You will be amazed!

What dose do you use? What made you even start using CoQ-10 - do you have heart issues?

No more laxatives or pills for me. I soak chia seeds in water until they do not absorb anymore. I keep a contianer of them in my fridge. Whenever I get a drink of juice or water I put a large dollup of the chia gel into it and drink it up. I am assured the seeds are not absorbing any body fluid because they are already soaked to capacity. I am now very regular for the first time in years. I suffered from chronic constipation and dry hard stools that were difficult to pass. I think these seeds add all the natural lubrication I needed. They are all natural and I can buy them in the natural food section of the grocery store or any natural food store. It takes about 4 days to kick in if you are severly constipated, so if you try this, don't give up too soon. you will thank me!

Hi Bob
Some of the known fiber supplements which you can get in your local pharmacy include Metamucil Fiber Therapy, Citrucel Methylcellulos,and Konsyl Natural Fiber Laxative.

I've also noticed that Super Seed by Garden Of life is getting very good reviews. This is a unique fiber supplement that comes from seeds, sprouted grains, and legumes and does not have Psyllium at all which is often not good for the stomach.
Hope this helps.

No two people are the same, but I've always had a sensitive stomach and have never had any problems taking The Lady Soma Fiber Cleanse over the last few months. I initially purchased a bottle as part of a new fitness regimen, and my results were regular and ... voluminous. (The first few days were particularly ... productive.) Never any diarrhea, never any bloating. Just the best digestive health and regularity of my life, though keep in mind I'm pairing its use with better diet and regular exercise. Can't recommend this stuff highly enough.

In my case the constipation is caused by a drug I take called cogentin. It decreases saliva as well as other bodily fluids making defecation difficult. I cannot stop taking the cogentin because it is used to treat the akathisia from my antipsychotic.(Believe me, even with the side effects, it's better than akathisia.) Will fiber pills help or is there something else I should be taking to treat this?

I've had bad haemorhoids (piles) for many years and went through two surgeries, ligation and after haemorohoidsectomy which was pretty recent. And i couldnt understand my body. I eat adequately plus i am a marathon runner. But not only i faced problems with the piles, i also get indigestion from various types of food which gives me the sense of bloatedness. And a gain of weight. It's been a few months now, and I took my doctors advice pretty seriously. He told me that the human body requires water, fibre and oil in adequate amounts in order for us to pass easily. He first prescribed me some fibronogyl, and some liquid paraffin (laxarol) which you can get off the counter at any pharmacy pretty easily and it worked remarkably well for me. I also now use chia seeds in my diet. And i heard prunes are beneficial too. I hope this helps.
