    What kind of product are you making?  Is it topical or ingestible?

  • No, Sorry for confusion was asking chemsits your thoughts on which supplement for personal intake fordigestive issues? sthought this would be perfect forum to ask since youre all experts in chemistry and so many suppleemtns are junk - if you can recoomend a dosage or a brand that actuall yworks?
  • I would speak to a pharmacist on this one. Being professional people, the guys on this board won't be recommending dosages for human treatment. You need to be a part of the healthcare 'crew' to do that.

    What @BartJ said. 

    I'll add that I wouldn't recommend any supplements because in the US they are not suitably regulated and I am skeptical of the safety of the products. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/supplements-and-safety/
  • papaya, womwood tree, fennel, aloe and cardamom..... are great for cleansing the digestive system..gives relief also for chronic constipation... these herbs are revolutionized and encapsulized into Digestic.. have tried it for my mom suffering from hypothyroidism... it works well specialy if the poop wont come in 3 to 4 days..it is non habit forming.
  • thank you all for the advice. did not realize its not an appropriate topic. Il llook into the herbs

  • I have actually seen some good results with simply adding apple cider vinegar alongside meals. I have quite a bit of experience in this area. Anecdotally I have had clients use this for various issues from indigestion to some things a little more harsh and it has worked well.

  • i agree that ACVis wonderful for so many purposes but i jsut cant tolerate the taste for a regular basis! ty anyway- open to more suggestions
  • Encapsulate it. You can find a cap maker for very cheap and make your own liquid capsules.
