Our expert says:
It is very vile tasting but works very well and being an aloe product is not as harmful as other stimulating drugs for constipation. The one bad thing about it is that it stains the inside of your colon black, so if you ever need to have a colonoscopy, they won't be able to see much. (Called melanosis coli) AIM makes a herbal fibre blend that I think is a better option to use. By the way you'll get Timjan at Dischem and most other pharmacies too.
