Lepicol is a multi-fibre source product containing gentle psyllium husk known to maintain normal bowel transit, as well as inulin which is a prebiotic fibre source. Together, these two ingredients help provide your recommended daily intake of fibre - something that many of us lack with the modern diet. The third key ingredient of Lepicol is 5 live culture strains. These beneficial bacteria help to balance the microflora in your digestive tract, supporting in the health of your bowel.
• Maintaining a healthy, regular bowel.

Directions for use:
Take Lepicol at least 30 minutes before a meal. Shake before use.
Adults: Take 1-2 heaped teaspoons mixed with water or juice once or twice daily (5-10g) and consume immediately. This should then be followed by a further glass of water. We recommend starting with a low dose and building up gradually to suit the individual.
Children: Half the adult dose with parental supervision. Parents should seek the guidance of a medical practitioner before giving Lepicol to children under 11 years.
