What are Fybogel Fibre Chews used for?
Fybogel Fibre Chews are used to treat constipation. Constipation is a common condition where you have difficulty emptying your bowels, and your stools are often hard and dry.

How do Fybogel Fibre Chews work?
Fybogel Fibre Chews contain the active ingredient ispaghula husk, which is a type of fibre. When you take Fybogel Fibre Chews, the ispaghula husk absorbs water in your digestive system and forms a bulky gel. This gel then stimulates the muscles in your digestive system, helping to move waste products through your intestines and out of your body. This process makes it easier to pass stools and relieves constipation.

Fybogel Fibre Chews are suitable for adults and children over 6 years old who are experiencing constipation. They are also suitable for people who need to increase their daily fibre intake to maintain regular bowel movements.
