If I am ever a bit bunged up I just drink about a litre of coca cola through out the day and the next day my bowels think I have had a vindaloo, Works for me may be give it a try.

I love discussing my bowel habits online but, ducosate, movical and Sena a three-stage attack. Ducosate to soften, movicol to hydrate and senna to aggrivate.

Someof these old wives tales turn out to be true ,Geeljay Eh !

Coca cola contains citric acid which can help with constipation.
