I bought this stuff a few months ago due to the reviews on this site. I have a problem with being influenced easily, which I'm working on, and acting without getting ALL the facts, another thing I'm working on. I suffered from chronic constipation, I'm not sure why until this day because I'm known as a health freak at my school. I'm usually the one passing out advice to others about their health problems but back to the product. I started taking 5caps per day and within 3 days, I had a healthy bowel movement, I was extremely pleased. My bloating went away and I wasn't as tired as I was. But there were some unpleasant side effects.I see on here some people don't experience cramping and some do but bodies very much vary. I experienced rather extreme cramping during the period I was taking these, it was so bad that each time I had a contraction I literally had to freeze in one spot and cringe until it passed. But after I had the bowel movement it went away...for then. So I guess that's why they suggest you drink PLENTY of water or any fluid for that matter. Once I started doing that, the cramping ceased. Another thing I experience was really bad gas. It could've been because I was so backed up but still I'm not sure why, so if you're anything like me I would do it on a weekend or when I know I'm gonna be home for a while. To spare some embarrassment. Lastly, I strongly suggest you take this for a week max. I was taking these everyday for almost 3 weeks maybe more, but after a while I was getting sharp-edged to watery stools. so I started to take them every other day but still my bowels weren't looking so healthy. I decided to stop taking them all together so i could develop the natural ability to go on my own. Well, bad idea. I was worst than before, I was afraid to eat because I grew a pot belly so big and it felt like my insides were forcefully stretching from so much back up. I went from a surfboard tummy to looking 6 months pregnant. Not only was I lacking fiber in my diet but I learned, after all this, that Senna (the prime ingredient) should only be used as a last resort, if all else fails. Why? Because this herb is no better than those chemical over-the-counter laxatives. Just like those, if you take the Senna for a long period of time, like I did, you WILL become dependent on them and it could severely damage your digestive system, possibly even cause internal bleeding. So I was abusing laxatives without even knowing it. I take this stuff every now and then for about 2-3 days tops (this experience put the fear of God in me) only if I want a GOOD cleansing but I urge everyone who thinks about getting this product, PLEASE do not take it for more than a week and drink PLENTY of water and when you are done, increase your fiber so you can stay on the right track. Quaker Oats has a new instant Oatmeal with high fiber that saved my digestive system, I eat two packets every morning for breakfast and with that, I've already gotten 20 grams of fiber for the day and work up the rest with foods like this: [@]

I expected this product to be a "real" colon cleanse product, not just something to help make you have bowel movements, which was the experience I had with this product. I think that calling it a "colon cleanser" is misrepresentation of what it actually does. I have no problem with BM's in general and have two a day with no straining. I took this product, thinking that it would do more than it did, that it would help cleanse my system of impurities even more so than normal BM's, but it didn't. It just made me cramp up and have smelly gas, neither of which is ever a problem for me, and gave me an extra BM each day. I guess if you have problems with constipation and irregularity, then this might help get your system going. Otherwise, don't waste your time or money. I'll be dumping the rest of the bottle out.

          These are only fiber filled capsules, so you off better off buying a box of Grape Nuts which works 100% better.

              These capsules are easy to take. No bad liquid flavor. No feeling of having to go to the bathroom constantly like some others I've tried. Quick to start working. The best cleanse I've tried and a good value.

                this works wonderful and I had no cramps. I have had issues all my life with constipation and this delivers....the next morning. Doesnt make you feel like you have to run but lets you go and you feel so much better after...I have tried cheaper ones and you could have taken the whole bottle and still not gone. This is great. I dont take it everyday but maybe every other to keep me regular.

                  The recommended dosage is a bit strong. Try 3-4 capsules at night with 6-8 oz of water just prior to bedtime. Within an hour of waking, you should have a "double" and feel flat and healthy the rest of the day.

                  This is a great product! After 1-2 days of taking these (as instructed), I had a successful bowel movement. This is only intended for people to take who are irregular, not for a complete bowel cleansing system. It's great and helps keep my system regular!
                  For those looking for a complete bowel cleansing system, go with Liquid Glycerin or "Fleets Phospho-Soda." It works in about an hour or two and totally cleans you out.

                  This Product is GREAT all of my life I have had issues in this department. As most of us do but we dont dare say a word. Anyhow, this product has given me my life back. I feel good about me and can actually go to the bathroom without being too flustered (easy going which is rare for me). I have tried just about all of the colon cleanse pills and packets that are out there. I love this product and have been taking this now for about 2.5 years. This will be a part of my daily diet for the rest of my life that is how good it is. I have gotten a few others to take these and they too love them. Thanks again so very much for making SUCH A WONDERFUL PRODUCT.
