Regucol combines psyllium husks with bacterial cultures.Psyllium husks are naturally high in fibre, when mixed with fluid, they act like a sponge, absorbing more than twenty time their weight and forms mucilage.
I used imodium (loperamide hydrochloride) for a time, but when I stopped using it. I found it made no difference to my bowel movement whatsoever, save the side effects of dry mouth and a sort of constipation.
I recently discovered Regucol which works great, at times I almost feel like a normal human being, but there's one nasty catch, it's only sold by holland and barrett, and at no small price point, which I can only assume is paying for the shelf space, as avery pot is one third empty at 180g, and at the quantities needed two heaped teaspoons before every meal, even at £5.24 is not viable long term solution.
Are there any good/cheaper alternatives or have you had any success with bulk orders over the internet?
I intend to write an Email directly to holland and barrett, will update this thread with their response.
