Enriched with hibiscus and cloves, this bulk-forming laxative is high in both fibre and mucilage. Hydrated husks swell, forming a gelatinous mass that promotes regularity.
Fiber Ultra Rich Plantago + F.O.S. is an excellent source of fibre. It purifies and decontaminates, and is 100% natural. Plantago is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fibre and mucilage. The laxative properties of plantago are due to the swelling of the husk when it comes in contact with water; this forms a gelatinous mass that keeps feces hydrated and soft, provided it is taken with sufficient water. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel, followed by emptying. Also contains the prebiotic fructooligosaccharides.
Each teaspoon contains:
Psyllium (Plantago ovata) husks 2128 mg

Drink immediately and maintain adequate fluid intake. Effects observed 12–24 hours after the first dose; results may take 2–3 days. If you are taking other medications, take this product 2 hours before or after them. Avoid long-term use and consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 6 weeks. Also take 1–2 capsules of enteric-coated Acidophilus Ultra each day. Start progressively or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Our Acidophilus Ultra capsule is protected by an enteric coating. The capsule must survive stomach acids and be delivered to the small intestine in order to work. The beneficial activity of acidophilus capsules without an enteric coating is destroyed in the stomach by stomach acids.
