Excellent!Dr. Christopher's LBT has been in my life since the 1970s. (I have a sensitive colon, quite reactive to stress.) It isn't just a laxative, but actually heals the intestines as well. I met Dr. Christoper at a 1970s Vancouver health show; he was warm and gracious and an enlightening conversation ensued. Two years later, I found myself nursing my mother through terminal cancer. As the tumour grew, it pressed on her colon, fortunately I knew about LTB and meted out doses for her while sending thoughts of gratitude to Dr. Christopher as the gentle herb kept the medically predicted colon problems from ever materializing. Eventually, I became a registered nutritional consultant (now retired) and this herbal combination helped many of my clients over the years and remains an essential in my own herbal medicine cabinet.
This product had the combination of ginger root and turkey rhubarb I was looking for based on suggestions from a herbalist I'm working with for IBS-C. I've been using it for a week now and I've found it effective as a gentle prokinetic. Christopher's Original Formulas is a good brand. Recommended product.
I've used this product for a while but it's often out of stock locally so I started ordering from iHerb and get it timely everytime! This is a great, high quality product that greatly benefits my aging needs. ..and I love the ease of ordering through this company - I'll very likely order other products too.
This Formula works. I almost completed my first bottle and unfortunately I need to stop using it because I was loosing electrolites I believe potassium. Now I dont want to scare someone I know many people who took this formula and formula of dr Shulze and theY didnt have that problem. With Shulze Bowel formula 1 I had one scary experience, I had to go to hospital for infusion because I felt down and blood test show very low potasium. This formula is not that strong so that is why I took it longer for around 2 months. Now question for expert, why is my body losing potasium? Can that be adrenal weakness or malnutrition?
Excellent product. Christopher formula is quality. I find they are helpful for bowel and constipation. The ingredients are great. Not strong on the colon, don't get cramps from it but still effective so can use for longterm. The only criticism would be that I wish they contained aloe vera. Will purchase again.
The benefit of the product is what means the most to me. It really does what it is supposed to without becoming habitual. It apparently has good quality too because it does what it promises. The ingredients are safe, wholesome ingredients. It is a swallowable capsule thus there is no noted taste. The small size makes it easy to swallow. The suggested dose is easy to take and can be adjusted to need.
I have tried so many supplements to encourage a lazy bowel. This set of ingredients is the best so far (After many years of problems.) I have played around with the dosage. I have found that taking 3 caps around 5pm works well. But it did not work at a regular time, it had a 4 hour window which is not convenient for going out. Recently I have added magnesium powder to my morning drink of water. Now it is on time every day. A helpful benefit.
When I take this after a while you can feel the warmth inside your stomach. I like this feeling, I feel it is cleaning my insides. However, if you're sensitive i wouldn't take this the first thing in the morning empty stomach. On some occasion, it gave me a slight stomach ache but it went away quickly.
I personally love Dr. Christopher's brand. They are effective and really work! I keep these on hand to take occasionally after a heavy meal or a day of unhealthy food choices. (eek!) They help me to empty out easily and completely the next morning without any tummy pains or feeling like I took a laxative. Love that they are gentle and natural!
I feel like this product is ok. I’m not seeing much improvement with just two capsules. Although I feel like the quality of ingredients is good. Packaging was fine. And you do get a lot for a decent price. The taste isn’t bad. I don’t feel like I taste anything. It might be beneficial to some. I just didn’t see the best results
