@A myIBSteam Member I've never hear of that. What is it?

I take Senokot it takes a little longer to work but you do not get all the gas from fiber and probiotics and you do not get the painful cramps of Ex-Lax and other chemical Laxatives. If you have an Ulcer--AVOID Stimulant laxatives altogether. It could cause internal bleeding.
