What are Normacol Granules?
Normacol Granules are designed to help to keep you regular and relieve constipation. If you’re struggling with constipation which has stopped you from passing stools at least three times in one week, you could use Normacol Granules to relieve your constipation.
What causes constipation?
There are lots of different things that can cause constipation, and sometimes there is not an obvious reason why you are not passing more than 3 stools in one week. The most common causes of constipation are:
- Not having enough fibre in your diet.
- Not drinking enough fluids.
- Not getting enough exercise.
- A change in diet or daily routine.
- Stress, anxiety or depression.
- Ignoring the urge to go to the toilet.
How will this product help to treat my constipation?
Normacol Granules contain the active ingredient sterculia, a vegetable gum from the karaya tree. This natural dietary fibre helps to relieve your constipation, keeping you regular.
How to use Normacol Granules.
For adults, use 1 – 2 sachets once or twice a day after meals. Put the dry Normacol Granules onto your tongue either straight from the sachet or from a spoon or your hand. Swallow with plenty of water or a cool drink, drinking enough liquid to ensure that the oesophagus does not become blocked. Never crush or chew Normacol Granules.

Don’t you just hate blockages? Whether it is in the nose and you struggle to breathe through it and smell, or whether it is a traffic jam caused by an accident that leaves you stuck on the road, they are a pain.
The same can be said about constipation, a simple blockage in the digestive system that can cause a lot of problems. To find the solution to constipation, first, you need to know the cause.
