    this concoction was recommended to me by a nurse in a hospital where i was a recent guest. miraculously, it works perfectly for me!! i have had chronic constipation for 71 years. this is the first time in my life that i don’t feel full and uncomfortable! (Miralax didn’t work. neither did Benefiber. gave me lots of painful gas, besides.)
