any supplements for incomplete bowel movement ?

Hi.


I'd like to ask a question or so about supplements. I have a bowel problems, god knows what it is, the best description i could give is incomplete bowel movement. OK, so i was thinking about purchasing one of the following supplements...

Psyllium Husks

Aloe Vera Juice Drink

Milk Thistle Seed Capsules

Prebio 7



Is there a limit you can take of these things per day. They never seem to have a limit, just a reccomended amount on some occasions. And can you have them all at the same time ? would too many of these things do damage, or is it only over the counter laxatives that do that ?

The last thing i want to do is overdose on Psyllium Husks

Nobody in the know ?



At the moment i take things called fibre diet capsules. Today i had a full bowel movement. The problem is afterwards. After i exercised and got sweaty, i had to wipe my behind numerous times as if i had done a crap when i hadn't.

Re: any supplements for incomplete bowel movement ?

I take Metamucil for my IBS problems. I had my doctor tell me that you can take the capsule form, but the liquid is better and does a better job. I use the orange, sugar free, and mix it in water, which seems to be the best. You start at one dose, and you can go up to three times a day. I take two, morning, and evening.

Re: any supplements for incomplete bowel movement ?

look up rectocele and see if you have the same symptoms. I am not sure if you are male or female.
Feeling like I had to go and could only go a little bit was the first symptoms of my rectocele.

Re: any supplements for incomplete bowel movement ?

I get nervous about those "diet" fiber supplements. There might be some extra appetite suppressant, stimulant, or laxative ingredient that is causing the problem. It could cause your bowels to move too quickly without getting a chance to absorb the extra fluids. It leaves little bits behind so you have to constantly return to the bathroom. Your body might just need time to adjust, but if it doesn't go away on its own, I'd stop taking it.

That kind of thing can also happen when you change your diet too much. Too much fruit does it to me.

I'd stick with regular psyillium fiber supplements such as metamucil, fiber 1. They're available in all drug stores and grocery stores in my area. You might have different brands in the UK. Just ask a pharmacist for the safest natural fiber supplement.



, or another major brand you can find in most drug stores or grocery stores.

I don't know if men do or not. hmmmmm
I'd try upping my fiber a lot and drinking lots of fluids and increase your daily exercise. People don't realize how important that is to your regularity.
luck to ya.
