    Default Staying Regular

    I am so frustrated by my sluggish bowels. Every time I "go", it feels like only a fraction of what is in there actually comes out.

    I don't get it. I do everything right. Lots of fibre, water, little to no processed foods, exercise, etc.

    I hate using laxatives and softeners - I just want my body to work right on its own, without dependency.

    Any tips/tricks?

    YES!
    grapefruit seed extract i suggest the capsules, not the tincture, it's bitter as sin!
    it's natural, it's a yeast buster. it helps you to have more frequent and smaller bowel movements.
    also good probiotics! they will help populate your bowel with good bacteria to assist in breaking things down and moving them along
    good luck!
