Fibre for health.

Fibre is a key part of our dietary intake to ensure we maintain a healthy bowel. Not eating enough fibre can lead to digestive problems such as constipation and other chronic digestive disorders.

Why Lepicol Plus with Digestive Enzymes?

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 go a long way to help provide your recommended daily intake of fibre - something that many of us lack with the modern diet. The third key ingredient of Lepicol are 5 probiotic strains. These beneficial bacteria help to balance the microflora in your digestive tract, supporting in the health of your bowel. Lepicol plus+ has the extra benefit of digestive enzymes to aid your bowel in digesting food.

Suitable for:

• Maintaining a healthy, regular bowel.
• Irritable bowel

Store in a cool dry place - out of direct sunlight.
Does not need refrigeration.

Directions for use: For best results, take Lepicol plus+ digestive enzymes 10 minutes before a meal.

Adults: Take 1-2 (5 -10g) heaped teaspoons mixed with a glass of water or juice once or twice daily and consume immediately. This should then be followed by a further glass of water.

Children: Take 0.5-1 (2.5-5g) heaped teaspoon mixed with a glass of water or juice once or twice daily and consume immediately. Parents should seek the guidance of a medical practitioner before giving Lepicol to children under 11 years.

After two weeks, for some people, the amount of Lepicol taken daily can be reduced.

Please note: Taking Lepicol plus+ without water can cause choking. Always aim to consume 200-250ml of liquid with every 5g (heaped teaspoon). Please consult your doctor before taking Lepicol if you have recently had intestinal surgery or you have an intestinal obstruction. If at any time you experience discomfort after taking Lepicol, stop taking and seek medical advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I take too much Fibre?
Different types of high fibre foods in the diet can have a synergistic effect and can complement the effects of the psyllium husks in Lepicol. It is good to get into the habit of taking different sources of fibre - for instance, most fruits and vegetables are a good fibre source.

2. Can I take Lepicol if I'm pregnant?
Lepicol can be taken by pregnant and breast feeding women. However, we would always suggest that you seek advice from your doctor or health care practitioner on all aspects of nutrition whilst pregnant.

3.  Can I take Lepicol If I'm on other medication?
Lepicol is a natural fibre supplement product that can be taken with other medications. There are no known contraindications for the use of Lepicol. However, we do recommend they be taken 2 hours apart.

4. What do I do if I experience any discomfort whilst taking Lepicol?
Some people may experience discomfort when they first start taking Lepicol. In this situation the dose should be reduced until the discomfort subsides. If the discomfort continues then seek medical advice.

5. I suffer from diarrhoea & constipation, will Lepicol help in both situations?
Due to the nature of the psyllium husks within Lepicol, it is able to absorb water and bulk stools during diarrhoea episodes, whilst creating a soft gel and stimulating peristalsis which aids in the smooth passage of the stool during constipation episodes. Lepicol psyllium husks are therefore able to help normalise bowel movements from both extremes.

6. Is Lepicol safe to take for diabetics?
Lepicol fibre supplement ingredients are not absorbed by the body, therefore, the sugars within the fibre are not digested. Diabetics taking Lepicol should discuss this with their diabetic health practitioner as it may play a role in helping to maintain sugar levels when taken as part of a healthy diet.

7. Is Lepicol safe for children to take?
Lepicol is a natural product and is therefore safe to take. However, the key thing is to ensure the consumption of enough fluids during and after taking Lepicol - in young children this will need adult supervision. As a nutritional company we would always recommend to consult your doctor on supplements given to children under 11.

8. How long should I take Lepicol for?
Lepicol is designed to be taken long term however, some people may use Lepicol at key times in their life e.g stressful periods.

9. When should I take Lepicol?
We recommend taking Lepicol at least 30 minutes before a meal. The volume of water we recommended drinking with Lepicol could increase fullness so it is not recommended to take alongside a meal. This is a guide and for some people the timing may vary to fit into their daily routine. Lepicol can therefore, be taken any time of day away from food.

10. Lepicol packaging looks different has the product changed?
No, the Lepicol formulation is still the same. All we have done is updated the look of the Lepicol packaging to make it stand out more on shelf so you can identify Lepicol quicker and easier in store.
