Lepicol is a completely natural high fibre food for help maintaining and sustaining healthy bowels. Lepicol has been formulated to help support the cleansing and regulation of the bowels in a gentle, natural way and is suitable for regular, everyday use. Lepicol - Healthy Bowels Formula helps to maintain normal blood-sugar levels.
Lepicol contains 3 main ingredients:
The first is psyllium husks which provide the gentle fibre which is important for those with sensitive bowels. It helps support the body in pushing waste matter through smoothly and quickly.
Lepicol also contains Inulin (prebiotics) which have been shown to complement high fibre foods for healthy bowels by supporting intestinal healthy bacteria (probiotics).
The third ingredient is Probiotic bacteria. It is now clearly recognised that long term health of the bowels can depend on keeping the levels of good bacteria in the bowels at a higher level than bad bacteria.
Lepicol is the ultimate high fibre food in the support and maintenance of healthy bowels and it is the top selling product for ‘healthy bowels` in the UK. It helps support the body to eliminate food and other body wastes.
Lepicol can increase your intake of fibre
Clearly most people are now aware of the need to take in more fibre, particularly if you have sluggish bowels and for this many rely on fibre in their cereals. However, taking extra coarse or bran fibre is not the whole story. Bran fibre from wheat can be too abrasive for many, particularly those who have allergies to wheat.
High fibre food, for the support and maintenance of healthy bowels, needs to be from none wheat sources and the best none wheat source of fibre is psyllium husks.
Psyllium husks (plantago ovata/ispaaghula), Inulin, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus.

All the Lepicol products have been approved by the Vegetarian Society except for the Lepicol Whole Psyllium Husk - 180 Gelatin Capsules. However with regards to vegan, each of our specific probiotic strains need various nutrition sources to aid their growth in culture. Cow`s milk is used in the fermentation (manufacturing) process, and although it goes through a filtration process a number of times there can still be very small traces of this in the product. There is no additional milk added to the product after this time. This is a standard process used by most fermentation companies throughout the world.
