I love this product for constipation. I find it relieves it easily, effectively and gently. I don't use it on a regular basis but like to have it there for if I need it as I know I can depend on it. I only need to take a teaspoon and would advise to start with the lowest recommended dose when first taking to assess how it affects you as when I increased the dose I had quite frequent trips to the loo! The only downside, in my view, is the taste, which I'd describe as a bit chalky. However, the benefits outweigh it and I am a repeat customer of this product.

I tried colosan capsules as an alternative to the colosan powder but didn\'t find them as effective. I needed to take at least 4 capsules to have any effect. I liked being able to drink just water - and also not need to follow with lemon juice. It showed for me the importance of needing to adjust for my own individual needs and find what works for me. But as I\'d only ordered the trial size I didn\'t have sufficient capsules to experiment for longer and I decided to go back to the powder for my next order. I liked being able to buy a trial size to see how I got on with it but for me there weren\'t sufficient capsules to give it a fair trial and I realised I needed the full size to assess pro ...(more)

Having coeliac, I have had digestive problems for years. Before being diagnosed, I found these on the Internet and decided to give them a go after reading reviews. They really settled my problems, constipation, bloating, excessive wind, and I have continued to take them ever since. I take 2 capsules every evening and on occasions where I feel bloated again, I take 3.

Having previously tried the colosan capsules which worked really well, for my second order I decided to try the powder for comparison. I have to say it is not as bad as I had expected it to be. I has a pleasant texture and almost has a milky feel/taste to it when you drink it. Although I haven't been told I have low stomach acid I still find it works better with the lemon juice. Haven't yet decided which one I will continue to use going forward but so far just as effective as the capsules so depends on lifestyle and which is more convenient for anyone. All in all great stuff and wish I'd discovered it earlier!

Oh my! Colosan Capusules where have you been all my life? I started to take these after they were recommended by my colonic hydrotherapist who has been treating me for sever constipation. Having tried so many different supplements, I have to say these are the best! Absolutely amazing! I have now been diagnosed with IBS and I have to say I am not using the Buscopan that I have been prescribed as much as I thought I'd need to and I'm sure these capsules have something to do with it. I was taking the maximum dosage of 6 at night and again in the morning for a whole week for a full cleanse. I am now down to 2 a day to keep me regular.

I've been taking colosan on and off for around 7 years. Nowadays I just use it if I have over eaten fibrous foods which made be bloated and colicky. I originally took a teaspoon at night with a little lemon juice and in the morning I had a very happy elimination. When I used it for the first week I eliminated what I can only describe as material that looked like black tar, but without and discomfort. Since then I haven't looked back. It gave me my energy back and an overall sense of lightness and wellness. I also gave it to my sister who was also thrilled as it helped her so much with her occasional constipation.

I have used this product for several years and swear by it. I started noticing the benefits after a few days when my gut was cleaned out. I now use the product for 7-10 days at the time, 4-5 times a year. I always feel less bloated after each time I have used it.

I have been taking this product for a couple of years now and it has been amazing. I have suffered with severe constipation for many years and tried all kinds of remedies and products but this is the first one to help. I have found though that over time I have had to increase the dose from 1 level teaspoon to 2 level teaspoons or slightly more. When I was on holiday I was so worried about getting bunged up that I took a bit too much for several days and ended up with a very bloated stomach and cramp pains. In the end I stopped the product to give my stomach a rest. It carried on working for about a week before the constipation was back and that was when I decided to try MagO7 as I had read i ...(more)

It has made my life miserable for years and made me dread going out !! Unfortunately my epilepsy medication makes my ibs worse but there's nothing I can do about that !!! I regularly take buscapam to help with the cramps and go through a box a week !! This was until I found colosan ....

This product is the best we had tried so far for constipation and in our family we have tried some. It's very effective, even in small doses. With respect to dosage, please be aware that you should take it gradually, because each person is different and taking a "normal" dose of a teaspoon can cause your stool to become so loose that is very uncomfortable and it can impede you carrying on your daily routine. For us it worked with only one dose per day (before bedtime or so), or even few days apart, 1/4 teaspoon not heaped, but flat. Also, follow the instructions and take it on an empty stomach and followed by water with lemon juice, and not eat after that for at least one hour. The ...(more)

This product has done wonders for my husband. He takes 1 level teaspoon before bed and it clears him out very effectively in the morning. Without it he gets blocked up very quickly.

I have used this product to do a full cleanse, and I have also used it to maintain "regularity". It works brilliantly for either purpose, however, if you do a full cleanse, you do need to factor in 24 hours where you stay close to home.

I have used this product for a couple of years now though I have changed the way I use it. At first I took 6 or 7 tablets before bed and 2 more in the morning once a week for a thorough cleanse but this became difficult to maintain. I now take one at night most nights and it is less dramatic and may take two or three days to work but it is very effective. I would recommend this product and also Finchley Clinic from whom I have always had excellent service.

I don't personally have any problem with constipation/bowel regulation, but use Colosan for a general 'clean out' as and when I feel I need to. It has a positive effect on my energy levels and doesn't create any discomfort whatsoever. I take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with plenty of water (and lemon juice thereafter as directed) and it works within 3 - 5 hours. A great start to a 'detox' I find, especially if I've been overdoing it!
Date Added: Friday 24 July 2015
Colosan capsules are still my go-to product for quick and effective results. I usually take 4 capsules first thing in the morning, with a large glass of water (+ lemon juice, where available, for optimal results) and wait at least an hour before eating. It may take 2 days to kick it at the start, but boy when it gets going, it gets going. I quickly have more energy, better skin and less cravings.

I tried Colosan to deal with occasional bouts of constipation, but have found it to be too harsh for my system, even in much-reduced doses. The "starting" dose was massively too high for *me*. It is *VERY* effective, but gave me explosive diarrhoea and unpleasant stomach cramps. I have a history of IBS, so that may be the reason for my *over-sensitive* reaction? I continue taking oxyegen products to deal with candida & adrenal fatigue, but find that OxyLift and Oxy-Powder are much kinder to my system. If Colosan is too harsh for you, I would recommend trying other products - I did, and found ones that suit me better. I additionally take OptiBac or Fivelac when I am awa ...(more)

This product was the only thing to sort out my months of extreme constipation. I tried so many other products and even had colonics, but this was the only thing that had a proper impact. I bought the trial size to start out with so I could see if the product was suitable, and it certainly was.

At last an answer to my problem. It is gentle and very effective. I took 4 tablets to get things moving which only took a day to work and gradually decreased the amount over the first week , dropping down to 2 twice a day. I now take 1 tablet twice a day unless for some reason I feel I need to take 2 at night. They are amazing and I feel so much better.

If you suffer from IBS, fluid retention during your monthly cycle or indigestion and constipation during season changes, this product is the perfect remedy. First thing in the morning with hot water, it's easy to take, no taste or smell, follow it up with the recommended lemon juice or table spoon of apple cider vinegar and all day you will find you have regular bowels and no gas or bloating. After a week you will see the difference in your skin and feel the difference round your waist. Most importantly you will feel an increase in your energy levels through out the day. Better then any colonic or hot enema, because it is a daily ritual that works with your own body's flora and i ...(more)

I love Colosan, it is the best product I have tried for colon health. I have been taking it for at least 10 years. When I first took colosan I did the big cleanse but I now take just 2 capsules per day. I have tried other similar products, but always come back to my good old faithful colosan! I find the capsules more convenient than powder, easy to take on holiday etc. Along with biokult, I find colosan the best way to keep me regular and bloat free.

I find colosan is very effective at oxygenating and cleansing my bowels. I have also tried Oxy-Powder which didn't seem to work as well in my case. However I have a number of clients who have used Oxy-Powder who are delighted with it both its health giving effects and intestinal benefits. I am a homeopath who recommends both products to clients when needed.

This has to be one of my favourite products. It really is a fantastic colon cleanser as well as lifting energy levels. I regularly (excuse the pun!) recommend it to clients for constipation - one mum was absolutely delighted that not only did it completely eradicate her daughter's constipation but lifted her mood so much it brought her to tears to see how happy her daughter had become.

I would like to say that Colosan has made life so much better for my husband . He has been using Colosan now for 12 years and it works so well.he was in Hospital for 7weeks during November and December2013 and there was nothing they had in hospital that worked for him as well as Colosan . In the end they accepted that he could use Colosan and it was such a relief .

As constipation can be a problem for me, it does help. The only thing I have noticed with Colosan and some other oxygen products designed to help with bowel regulation is that if I just have slightly more than enough to stop constipation, I can get caught short. It has happened once or twice, so I have to make sure that with Colosan, I don't have any more than about three quarters of a teaspoon a day.

I have used ‘Colosan’ for around 7 years now. My daughter recommended it and I bless her for it. It is the only product I consider safe to use and the only product which will not cause pain in the gut, unlike other laxative or bulking agents. I had a sluggish bowel in my teens and I am in late middle age now. I have had persistent problems since then and they have increased with time. I have had different diagnoses - for many years it was referred to by doctors as a 'spastic colon' and any substance such as Senna was not recommended as its action would cause immense pain and often, bleeding. I have been hospitalised several times with this problem. Once when I was due to have a colonosc ...(more)

Colosan Powder is a VERY effective colon cleanser. You only have to "visually examine" the results to realise how very well it works. Also, it is an additional way to assist with weight control if used sensibly of course.

I had candida for years with a range of horrible symptoms. I was tired and felt toxic. Colosan powder gave the the quickest and fastest relief I have ever had. By the next day I had more energy, and felt less bloated, and normal basically for the first time in years. I now take it twice a week or as needed.

I have been bloated for years and have tried EVERYTHING. At times, it would become so painful, it even hurt to move around. I was told i had IBS. I tried herbal laxitives which did help me go to the toilet but caused major cramps and would not help for the bloating at all. When people would ask me to go anywhere, i would worry as to how i would feel in case i bloated and felt uncomfortable. This is all until i tried Colosan - the best thing to happen to me EVER!

This is a brilliant product I wish I had known about it sooner. I am about to order a full size pack. Don't take my word for it try it for yourself, you won't be dissapointed.

I bought this product after Oxypower was withdrawn before being re-formulated. I have to admit - this didn't work on me at all and I was really diappointed. It's almost as expensive as oxypowder. It literally didn't have any effect. Oxypowder has now been reformulated to meet UK regs. I'm hoping that the new formula will work as well as the old formula, as it's the only product I have found that works on me.

What can I say... I've been using Colosan for almost 4 years now and I've only just got round to writing a review. I had a my first colonic about 4 years ago and as I left the clinic the therapist handed me a leaflet about Colosan and the finchley clinic. I duly went out and bought Colosan in the powder form and I havent looked back. I cant live without it. If I do go without it I notice I get very quickly "backed up", very tired, groggy and generally sluggish. If my colon isnt cleansed I generally feel rubbish. Doctors have in the past diagnosed me with IBS (rubbish) and recommended laxatives to me. I dont have IBS and I dont want to take laxatives. I just need to keep my colon ...(more)

I have been using herbal laxatives for a couple of years and was getting worried about the harm I might be doing to myself. I have suffered from constipation since having a hysterectomy 15 years ago.

I feel more confident that the Colosan is not harming my body in the same was as herbal laxatives.

Hi I have been using Colosan powder since 2006. It is simply an excellent product. At that time I changed totally my eating habits- I started to eat as outlined in the book Nourishing traditions and the site of westonaprice.org. Initially I used Colosan for 5 days- 2 x per day- and also eating only grapefruits/ oranges, water and herbal teas. The idea was to clean my colon. Then I took for a month a good probiotic- here on this website are many excellent probiotic products- and then continued with fermented home-made drinks. I take Colosan every time I feel I a cold is coming and I believe that it helps me to stay away from colds. Also when I feel constipated - usually when travelling ...(more)
