Fybogel Hi-Fibre Orange and Lemon both contain ispaghula husk, a natural fibre which can help to relieve constipation. Fybogel Hi-Fibre Orange is an easy-to-use and pleasant – tasting way to increase the fibre in your diet, helping your digestive system work more efficiently and gently relieving constipation without straining, discomfort or unnatural urgency, helping to restore and maintain regularity.
We all know that fibre is good for your digestion. It helps to maintain regularity and adds bulk to our stool, making it easier to pass. However, modern lifestyles do not always make it easy to eat the recommended daily amount of fibre. People leading stressful or busy lives, for instance, may find it more convenient to buy ready-made meals and fast-food takeaways, which typically contain less fibre. Over time, this type of diet can cause constipation. To stay regular in the long term, increasing your fibre intake is advisable. In the short term, sometimes a constipation remedy may be required to rectify the immediate problem.
Fybogel Hi-Fibre Orange and Lemon are sugar and gluten-free and contains no chemical stimulants.
