Lepicol, Food Supplement 3 in 1 formulation, high in fibre containing inulin and live bacteria.
Fibre for health.
Fibre is a key part of our dietary intake to ensure we maintain a regular bowel. Not eating enough fibre can lead to digestive problems such as constipation and other chronic digestive disorders.
Lepicol is a multi-fibre source product containing gentle psyllium husk. Together, these two ingredients go a long way to help provide your recommended daily intake of fibre - something that many of us lack with the modern diet. The third key ingredient of Lepicol are 5 probiotic strains. These bacteria help to balance the microflora in your digestive tract.
How to use
Take Lepicol 30 minutes before a meal.
Adults: Take 2-8 capsules once or twice daily, followed by 2-3 glasses of water or juice.
Children: 2-5 capsules once or twice daily with at least 1 glass of water. The capsules can be opened and the contents poured into water or juice if preferred. Parents should seek the guidance of a medical practitioner before giving Lepicol to children under 11 years. After two weeks, for some people, the amount of Lepicol taken daily can be reduced.
