Dr. Bernstein recommended using "Phloe" for constipation during his Webinar for diabetics last week. Has anyone used Phloe? It's supposedly a product made of prebiotics, fiber and enzymes extracted from New Zealand kiwi fruit.
I've tried probiotics and diagestive enzymes before (supplemented by yams, sweet potatoes and yuca as prebiotics). But has anyone used this?
There is porbably nothing I haven't tried, except for a few probiotic brands I haven't purchased yet (I'll be using Natren's Healthy Trinity and Dr. Ohira's soon when my current probiotics run out). But this one I haven't heard of.
The constipation I suffer from results from Low Carbing and has two components: (i) lack of moisture in the colon and (ii) pellet-like Bristol chart 1 stool. I've tried various different methods but nothing so far that permanently resolves Big C.
Edited 5/16/2011: Before Dr. B used to recommend something called "Pecta-Sol C" powder. Some kind of apple pectin powder. Not sure if this was effective.
