A family of laxatives designed for comfort and convenience.

Adding Fibre with Prodiem

For years, physicians have been recommending fibre-containing laxatives to relieve occasional constipation. These laxatives work by increasing stool volume and by holding water in the intestinal tract. This makes stools softer and easier to pass without straining.

Finally, convenient New Prodiem fibre formulas offer choice in constipation therapy.

New PRODIEM BULK FIBRE THERAPY CAPLETS contain an innovative fibre, calcium polycarbophil, for effective and gentle relief of constipation with no gas or bloating and discomfort. New Prodiem caplets are convenient therapy for occasional constipation.You'll appreciate the great orange taste - and the choice of regular or sugar-free formulas - of New PRODIEM BULK FIBRE THERAPY POWDER. The powder mixes easily in cold liquids, leaving no unpleasant lumps or gritty texture. New Prodiem powder contains methylcellulose, a fibre that minimizes gas and bloating, for comfortable and effective relief of occasional constipation.

When more fibre isn't enough

Sometimes adding fibre isn't enough to treat stubborn occasional constipation. In those cases, a stimulant laxative may relieve the constipation. Senna is a natural stimulant laxative recommended by physicians and trusted by patients for many years. Senna works by stimulating bowel contractions and by reducing water absorption from the bowel.

New PRODIEM OVERNIGHT RELIEF THERAPY TABLETS are made with natural-source senna. For stubborn cases of constipation, gentle easy-to-swallow Prodiem tablets provide the relief you need - overnight.
